6. Ameriquest – “Surprise Dinner” – 2012
We don’t know who it was that chose the initial phase in getting customers to laugh, but it was pretty damn good. So when Ameriquest Mortgage set out to court buyers, they figured the best way to demonstrate their company slogan of “not judging too quickly” was by offering little snippets of the unforeseen, obscurely hilarious cases.
This “Surprise Dinner” spot was a fan-top pick, regardless of the possibility that the company’s strategies prompted its breakdown as a component of the American financial crisis. This one will forever be one of the greatest Super Bowl commercials of all time.
