You'll Be Surprised By The 20 Most Viral Super Bowl Ads Of All Time

It’s a given that Super Bowl commercials will be a popular talking point the Monday after the big game, but what ads have the power to outlast your Super Bowl hangover?

Unruly media has compiled a viral chart that tracks the most shared Super Bowl ads of all time—because there’s a difference between watching ads to procrastinate during work and thinking a commercial is so funny that you just have to share them with a friend.

While recent ads that premiered during the height of social media certainly have an advantage, classics like Apple’s “1984” and Budweiser’s “Wassup” certainly have their spot in the most viral Super Bowl ads of all time. Unruly also provided a chart of sharing habits in the month leading up to the 2012 big game.
