Anheuser-Busch InBev Claims Three of Top 10 Super Bowl Commercials

I don't know about you, but none of the AB InBev's advertisements last night hit home with me. Then again, maybe it's because the last thing I'd ever want is a house made of Bud Light cans.

Still, as lame as they were, the beer maker's advertisements still managed to garner three of the top ten Super Bowl ads according to USA Today's annual Ad Meter.

Top billing at No. 3 went to the aforementioned Bud Light ad in which a guy builds a house out of beer cans. The No. 4 spot was a sappy piece in which a Budweiser clydesdale befriends a longhorn steer. No. 8 on the list was arguably the funniest AB ad of the evening in which townspeople build a human bridge to save a stranded Budweiser truck.

Prior to InBev acquiring the St. Louis-based Anheuser Busch at the beginning of 2009, Budweiser or Bud Light had earned the No. 1 spot on the Ad Meter every year since 1999. Last year, the brewer was beat out by Doritos. This year the top ad went to Snickers.
