WATCH | Our Favorite Super Bowl 2012 Commercials

Get a jump on the big game by checking out our favorites here.

Dogs, Ferris Bueller and "poop-free" babies figure prominently in some of this year's Super Bowl XLVI commercials. Watch some of our favorite Super Bowl Sunday ads so you can get a jump on the big game. Then vote for your favorite ad below.

Let's start with this commercial for the Chevy Sonic. We're not so impressed by the visuals, but we like the soundtrack. It's "We Are Young," by the band fun and Janelle Monae. WNYC featured the song in our Gig Alerts series.

Actor and comedian Will Arnett stars in this ad for Hulu.

VW returned this year with its Star Wars theme. Add James Brown and dogs and you've got this short little film/commercial for the Volkswagen Beetle.

This one, also by Volkswagen, shares a Star Wars theme.

"Bueller? Bueller?" In this Honda CR-V commercial, Matthew Broderick reprises his role as Ferris from the '80s classic Ferris Bueller's Day Off.

H&M got English soccer star David Beckham in front of the cameras to advertise his briefs, ahem, clothing line.

Another blast from the past: John Stamos uses his Greek roots to sell Dannon Oikos Greek Yogurt.

This commercial for the Toyota Camry features nude models, Lionel Richie and a "poop-free" baby.

Finally, here's one from Doritos that looks like it's featuring the new iPhone.

I'm not a Super Bowl fan but it's really in the pits this year ----- no Etrade babies or FedEx commercials. Now there's nothing to watch!!

Why are you running a piece on commercials? I listen to NPR because I really dislike commercials.

The dog getting in shape to chase the VW funny as heck my second favorite was the Chevy Sonic commercial. All the other just fell short and the Hulu commercial I just did not get at all.
