Budweiser 'Over The Decades' Super Bowl Commercial (VIDEO)

Feb 07, 2012

Just like the Prohibition-themed ad, Budweiser went for nostalgia with its 'Over The Decades' commercial during the Super Bowl. This advertisement portrayed the beer as a piece of American history by showing its involvement in various phases of America's history over the last century. The back-and-forth-to-the-present ad had an upbeat air but we're unsure if it will be remembered in the long run. Regardless, any ad featuring 'Miracle On Ice' footage is OK in our book.

For years, viewers have tuned into the NFL's Super Bowl as much to see what the advertisers roll out as how the two teams vying for the sport's top prize perform. This year was no different. Each time that NBC cut away from Super Bowl XLVI between the New York Giants and New England Patriots a hush came over most Super Bowl parties as everyone -- and not just the diehard sports fans with a rooting (or betting) interest -- focused entirely on the ads.

While iconic Super Bowl commercials like Apple's '1984' and Coke's ad starring Mean Joe Greene will be remembered so many more are soon forgotten or, even worse, ridiculed as super fails.

How does this Super Bowl ad stack up?
