We also got a kick out of the Snickers ad featuring Betty White and Abe Vigoda (who is still not dead):

And I got a chuckle out of the FloTV ad featuring CBS sportscaster Jim Nance:

But our favorite Super Bowl XLIV commercial had to be this promo for "Late Show with David Letterman," featuring David Letterman, Oprah, and Jay Leno:

Got a favorite Super Bowl XLIV ad, which I didn't include? Let me know via a Comment.

Loved the game, liked the commercials, did not care for the half time show. Who Dat? Kind of tired.
