The 2011 Super Bowl was enjoyed by millions and hyped for many weeks on end -- and, it didn’t disappoint. The game was exciting (even if the cheerleaders were lacking), and FOX’s coverage was extremely thorough.
But let’s face it: the sports wasn’t the best part. Super Bowl XLV was jam-packed with advertising, and some spots managed to shine above the rest. We found videos for the top 5 commercials of the Super Bowl to make it easier to watch them again and again. You can, too, after the jump. . .
Oscar co-hosts Anne Hathaway and James Franco look great together in this brief, but immensely satisfying, promo.

So, how does a one-minute ad spot become the stuff of legendary advertising? Take one actor who won’t compromise, some interesting hair and make-up ideas, and you’ve got commercial history.
“I didn’t know how far [Logitech] wanted to go with the look and the character. If it was just me kind of walking around, people would think it was weird,” Kevin Bacon explained.

Somewhere in the midst of all the singing and drama on the second season premiere of Glee, Jane Lynch appeared in full Sue Sylvester mode, via the new Members Project commercial from American Express.
Wearing her now-compulsory tracksuit, Lynch-as-Sue delivered fabulous one-liners like “What do animals do, except poop on your lawn and make you feel guilty about how delicious they are?” and “Sure, I’ll take a stand…for as long as it takes me to find a comfy chair.”
At the end of the ad spot, the image goes dark. The words “Don’t Be a Sue” encourage everyone to take part in the Project, and “do something good.”
