7 Greatest Tech/Web Super Bowl Ads of All Time

This year, for Super Bowl XLII, a handful of companies will spend millions of dollars hoping to impress America in 30 seconds.

Some dotcom and tech companies’ Super Bowl spots have been flops (Apple’s 1985 “Lemmings” comes to mind), but others will continue to impress and amuse us for many years to come. Here’s to the cream of the tech crop:

7. Monster.com’s “When I Grow Up” (1999)

“I wanna be a yes man!”

6. GoDaddy’s “Wardrobe Malfunction” (2005)

GoDaddy had two spots set for the 2005 Super Bowl, only to have the second one pulled by the NFL after this one aired.

5. CareerBuilder.com’s “Promotion Pit” (2007)

My favorite line: “You’re a delivery guy…you don’t even work here!”

4. Apple’s “Hal” (1999)

“Hello Dave. You’re looking well today…” Creepy.

3. E-Trade’s “Wasted $2 Million Bucks” (2000) Plus Part II (2001)

Hilarious. Priceless.

And the follow-up in 2001 after the dotcom crash…

2. Xerox’s “Monk” (1976)

“Does it all at an incredible 2 pages per second.” Uh, did we mention the machine is the size of a small bus?

1. Apple “1984″ (1984)

Often considered the greatest Super Bowl ad of all time.

    I thought the end of the Thank You promotion was the 3rd… Or are
    they extending it by 2 days?

  2. Good catch, ceiling cat – you are right that the promotion ended on
    the 3rd. Apologies for the confusion. Merry from Lending Club
