Considering the Seattle Seahawks demolished the Denver Broncos 43-8, the actual game didn’t turn out to be the must-see TV moment of the Super Bowl.

Instead, that honor went to the commercials, which cost as much as $4 million for a 30-second spot.

“I kept saying this phrase out loud,” Carson said earlier this morning. “‘Really? They spent that much money for that?'”

So did this year’s batch of ads live up to the hype? Carson and Producer Angie chatted about some of their favorites:

A Cheerios commercial featuring an interracial family drummed up some controversy online, but Carson dubbed it one of his favorites of the night.

“There was a subtlety to that commercial when it played amidst all these really expensive commercials,” he explained. “I actually really liked the Cheerio one because it had just some heart and it was very simple. Everything else just seemed overdone.

Producer Angie shared a few noteworthy ads people are buzzing about this morning, including the Doritos Time Machine spot and the viral Budweiser clip featuring a friendship between a Clydesdale horse and an adorable puppy.

T Mobile also came up with a great concept to feature their no-contract promise. They hired former NFL quarterback Tim Tebow, who knows all too well what life is like without a contract, for a series of commercials.

“He was good,” Producer Angie said. “He [used to] play for Denver, so it was a cool tie-in and he was very self-deprecating.”
