Published On January 30, 2013 | By Meghan Riggs

One of the most entertaining and most anticipated aspects of the Super Bowl every single year is the commercials. The Super Bowl is the one sporting event in which the viewers actually look forward to or don’t mind sitting through the commercials.

In honor of the upcoming Super Bowl XLVII showcasing the Baltimore Ravens and the San Francisco 49ers, we’ve picked our top five Super Bowl commercials.

#5 Michael Jordan and Bugs Bunny (Nike -1992)

A classic commercial featuring Michael Jordan and Bugs Bunny playing hoops, in Nike’s (Air Jordan’s) of course! Hello, Space Jam.

#4 Michael Jordan vs. Larry Bird: “The Showdown” (McDonald’s – 1993)

NBA legends Michael Jordan and Larry Bird go head-to-head in an epic and ridiculous game of H-O-R-S-E to decide who could dine on a McDonald’s Big Mac – “Nothing but Net”. Check out the ’90s fashion!

#3 Betty White (Snickers – 2010)

Betty White might have turned 91 recently, but is still as funny as ever in this commercial getting tackled and throwing a low blow with, “That’s not what your girlfriend says!”

#2 Little Darth Vader (Volkswagen – 2012)

Star Wars music plays as a little Darth Vader walks down a hallway and attempts to use the force on an elliptical machine, the family’s dog, a sandwich, washing machine and then his father’s Volkswagen. He finally finds success by starting the car with the force!

#1 Wassup??? (Budweiser -2000)

WASSUPPP???? Need we say more?
