This year, cute triumphed over all. Budweiser realized the only thing that could make their horses more loveable was by pairing them with an adorable puppy, putting "Puppy Love' in the top spot of most liked ad.

Patriotism carried Coca-Cola and Budweiser to the second and third sports. Coke's ad set to a multi-lingual "America the Beautiful" provided a heartwarming journey around America, with minimal appearances by the soft drink. Meanwhile, Budweiser prompted teary eyes across the country with a soldier's return to his hometown in "A Hero's Welcome."

A less adorable puppy ranked number four in Audi's "Doberhuana" ad, featuring the terrifying spawn of a Doberman and a Chihuahua. The ad also was voted the funniest of the year.
