ConDRAGulations: Best Super Bowl Commercial 2011

Last night, nearly 163 million people tuned in to watch the Green Bay Packers battle it out with the Pittsburgh Steelers in Super Bowl XLV (that's 45 for you Roman numeral illiterate out there). And while many of those 163 million people are high-fiving and cheese-head-bumping over the Packers' glorious victory, here at Please Welcome Your Judges a different celebration is in order.

You may or may not be surprised to find that I'm not incredibly invested in the play-by-play action of the Super Bowl (unless, of course, the New York Giants are playing). The real thrill comes from seeing the best of what the advertising world has to offer us through their multi-million dollar commercials. Last night featured several people being hit by cans (in both the head and crotch), a handful of rappers, a sexified Joan Rivers and a giant Poseidon; however, none of those stunts could top the power of The Force...

Can you image how much better Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace would've been if this kid had been its star??

A hearty Condragulations to Volkswagen for the best, most adorable and most memorable ad of the 2011 Super Bowl. It even ranked 1st in Brand Bowl 2011!

Side note: Honorable mention goes to the Bud Light product placement ad.
