(Newser) – Don't give a hoot who wins the Super Bowl, but still like the ads? Can't blame you, considering they cost $3.8 million per 30 seconds. SPOILER ALERT: The Daily News rounds up 10 of its favorites, including:

  1. Anheuser-Busch: "Brotherhood." A man raises a horse, loves the horse, loses the horse. Three years later, turns out the horse still loves him.
  2. Audi: "Prom." Boy without a date takes his dad's Audi to the prom, which gives him the mojo to kiss a girl on the dance floor. Only problem: She's on a date with a now-angry guy.
  3. AXE Apollo: "Lifeguard." A girl nearly eaten by a shark is saved by a bo-hunk lifeguard. They share a lusty look, until she spots ... an astronaut.
  4. Coke: "Chase." An Arab with a camel, a bus full of showgirls, and horse-riding cowboys are among those racing across the desert for a giant Coke can. Looks like Lawrence of Arabia meets Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert meets a Clint Eastwood movie.
  5. Doritos: "Doritos Girl Unveils 'Crash the Super Bowl' Finalists." Doritos rep Ali Landry reveals the top home-made Doritos ads by consumers. The winner will get to work with Michael Bay on the next Transformers movie and could win $1 million.

Click for the rest of the top 10.

Paul Harvey's Dodge Truck (that wasn't mentioned, at all) commercial, featuring FARMERS, blew them all away. It is really surprising, in these days of glitz, glitter, and brain-dead silliness, that authenticity can come across so strongly and with such impact. Might even make some people learn some language skills.

Most of the ads were uninspired. I liked the clydesdale one... terrible beer, nice horsey.
