On Sunday night, two teams clashed on the biggest stage in professional football and left it all out on the field in their quest to become the champions of Super Bowl 50. It was an epic meeting for the record books as Broncos quarterback Payton Manning sought to put the ultimate cherry on top of an illustrious career. Meanwhile Carolina QB Cam Newton looked to cap off one of the most impressive seasons of the past decade by continuing the momentum his Panthers had been building throughout the playoffs.

At least, that’s probably what happened. We’re not sure because we were too busy watching all the Super Bowl commercials.

Needless to say, the Super Bowl has become as much about advertising as it has about football. In fact, it might be the one time of the year people actually want to look at ads. And 2016 was a particularly great year for Super Bowl ads because if we’re being honest, the game itself was pretty bad.

But forget all that. The dozens of Super Bowl commercials that aired during the big game were entertaining as always, and we’ve rounded up the 10 best ones into a single post so you can watch them all in case you missed any. And as a bonus, we’ve included the single worst commercial of Super Bowl 50 as well, which you’ll at the bottom of this post.

Here are the 10 best Super Bowl commercials of 2016 in no particular order:

Hyundai: First Date

Kevin Hart. Enough said.

T-Mobile: Drop the Balls

T-Mobile came through in a big way with its first Super Bowl ads.

Doritos: Ultrasound

Amazon: Echo

No question: the Amazon Echo made a better showing than Cam Newton at Super Bowl 50.

Bud Light: Party Security

T-Mobile: Restricted Bling

Another winner from T-Mobile

Taco Bell: Quesalupa

Marmot: Love the Outside

A great one from a brand that will definitely benefit from the exposure.

Audi: Commander

Acura: NSX

Uh… we need one. Now.

And we don’t care one anyone says. This is, without question, the worst commercial of Super Bowl 50. It might be the worst commercial in the history of commercials.
