Some Super Bowl advertisements try for sentimental, and some try for awe-inspiring. But we think the most effective ads go straight for the funny bone. In no particular order, here's a list of the 10 most hilarious Super Bowl commercials from 2000 to the present year:

1. SnickersSuper Bowl 2015

If you don't like The Brady Bunch, you're wrong. And if you don't like this commercial, you're also wrong.

2. AmeriquestSuper Bowl 2005

Just like they say at the end of this ad, don't judge too quickly. You might think this commercial is going to be sweet and sappy, but right at the end it takes a hilariously unexpected turn.

3. FedExSuper Bowl 2004

The alien suit, the photo taped to the facenothing about it makes sense, and that's why we love it.

4. NationwideSuper Bowl 2015

One of Mindy Kaling's most charming qualities is her willingness to poke fun at herself. How many of us would shoot a commercial that features us gorging on ice cream or running through a car wash? Then again, if we were invisible, maybe we would.

5. Dannon OikosSuper Bowl 2012

This ad has it all: John Stamos, picture-perfect yogurt, lovey-dovey eyes and a violent head-butt.

6. Planters PeanutsSuper Bowl 2008

Maybe she was born with itor maybe it's Planters Peanuts?

7. DoritosSuper Bowl 2015

Been there, done that. (Well, to be clear, I have attempted to deter fellow passengers from sitting beside me on an airplane. I have never attempted to lure anyone with Doritos.)

8. Bridgestone TiresSuper Bowl 2008

What's funnier than talking animals? Animals screaming bloody murder. Don't worry; no squirrels were harmed in the making of this advertisement.

9. Tide-to-GoSuper Bowl 2008

The great thing about this commercial is how incredibly obnoxious it is. Because you know what? It works.

10. Old SpiceSuper Bowl 2010

Okay, so admittedly this ad never ran during the 2010 Super Bowl broadcast. But Old Spice released the commercial around the same time as the Super Bowl that year, and many of us (including me) assumed that it was one of the Super Bowl ads. And let's face itthis one is gold.

What was this year's showstopper commercial?
