We've culled the most eye-catching commercials from this year's Super Bowl -- including some spots that went viral long before they hit the TV screen. Check them out below.

Motorola punches Apple in the face.

Cars.com with some sassy, talking autos.

Eminem gets behind a sober (Chrysler) defense of Detroit.

Chevy with transformers meets Cloverfield.

It's become tradition: A homoerotic ad for junk food.

When beer commercials eschew misogyny in favor of funny dogs, that's a net win.
