HULU's Top Super Bowl Ads


HONDA's "Matthew's Day Off" and VOLKSWAGEN's "The Bark Side" and "The Dog Strikes Back" Walk Away Champions on HULU ADZONE 2012

The viewers have spoken, and just a few hours after the Giants were awarded the Super Bowl XLVI title, Hulu AdZone users have named this year's Super Bowl commercial winners.

Between Star Wars and Ferris Bueller, it seems nostalgia was the real winner this year. Of the ads that ran during game time, Honda's "Matthew's Day Off" just narrowly edged out Volkswagen's "The Dog Strikes Back". Bueller ultimately beat the Dog, but only by a hair, and the overall most liked ad on Hulu AdZone was the Volkswagen "The Bark Side" preview ad.

Please see below for the top results across categories including "Overall Most Liked Ads," "Funniest Ads," "Best Celebrity Cameo," and "Cutest Critters". To revisit these ads or for more details on Hulu AdZone 2012 check out
