SUPER BOWL TV — Even if you aren't a fan of football or the NFL, there's a good chance you were watching Super Bowl 50.

Both Denver and Carolina fans were in agreement over the quality of this year's Super Bowl ads, as well. We at KSL Sports were also watching — and we had our favorites, too.

This isn't a list of every commercial; some of them were a little too weird for us.

Still, here are some of our favorites. Let us know what you think in the comment section.

Avocados go to space

'Avocados from Mexico' started the game off with a futuristic look at post-human life that included references to Scott Baio, a Rubik's Cube, and "the white and gold dress that started a civil war."

Doritos goes to the delivery room

Doritos had an early finalist with a mildly realistic depiction of a future father and mother at an ultrasound appointment. The mother isn't amused by the father's snack choice — but baby sure was.

Instant reaction online indicated some think Doritos went too far in the ad. What do you think?

Mountain Dew goes to a weird place

Mountain Dew's entry involved combining three really good things in the world into … well, something weird. We aren't sure if we like it or hate it, but … you decide.

Marmot isn't far behind the Dew

Marmot's latest Super Bowl ad presented an interesting love story between a man … and his Marmot.

Budweiser wins over Americans with Brits

Budweiser reminded Americans of the things everybody loves. Making the list were things like Paul Rudd, emojis and raccoons.

The beer company had four Super Bowl 50 ads — one in each quarter — and used the final spot in the fourth as a public service announcement decrying drunk driving, featuring British star Helen Mirren.

T-Mobile calls out Verizon

T-Mobile brought out Steve Harvey, the infamous host of the Miss Universe Pageant who playfully admitted "I didn't get it wrong this time" about the cellphone company's tower placement.

Harvey joins Drake as famous people involved in T-Mobile commercials in the past year, which is a pretty good list.

Coke partners with Marvel

Coke tried to bring together the legions of Marvel Cinematic Universe fans by showing the Hulk chasing after Ant-Man (played by Paul Rudd) as the two heroes vie for the last can in Bruce Banner's refrigerator.

Amazon partners with Alec Baldwin

Amazon's ad featured its no Echo Bluetooth-powered stereo system … and a host of celebrities, beginning with Alec Baldwin and Dan Marino and ending with Missy Elliott.

The NFL sings with choirs of babies

The NFL had one of its own ads, featuring several choirs of "Super Bowl Babies" … or children born nine months after a Super Bowl, because … well, you know.
