By now, most of you have heard that the Denver Broncos won over the Carolina Panthers in Super Bowl 50. Or not. We are in basketball country after all. But whether you follow American football or not, there was something for everyone who tuned in to the big game. Yes, including car nuts.

Super Bowl 50 aired some of the most memorable car commercials in recent memory. While some heavyweight carmakers such as BMW and Mercedes-Benz opted not join this year's sports-marketing festival, those that did more than made up for the former's absence. Don't believe us? Below are the 10 best commercials. Press play and see for yourself.

Hyundai's "First Date." So what lesson can we learn from this 60-second spot? Never take the Genesis sedan out for a first date--especially if your date's dad is an angry, overprotective Kevin Hart. If you're that kind of a father, on the other hand, the Genesis is for you.

Toyota's "Longest Chase." Just how far can the Prius go? The answer is pretty damn far, at least if we go by Toyota's latest Super Bowl ad, which shows the hybrid holding its own against a fleet of cop cars during a chase. Yes, it's unlikely to happen, but still entertaining to watch nonetheless.

Honda's "A New Truck To Love." It looks like the Japanese carmaker has found a new way for herders to keep their sheep in check.

Mini's "Defy Labels." This star-studded spot enlists professional skateboarder Tony Hawk, tennis juggernaut Serena Williams and hip-hop musician T-Pain to help break stereotypes of those behind the wheel of a Mini.

Kia's "Walken Closet." One of the stranger Super Bowl commercials we can remember. A man walks into his closet to find film star Christopher Walken inside waiting for him. The actor gives a talk about life and socks. Yes, socks. You have to watch it to get it.

Subaru's "Puppy." The Japanese car manufacturer once again taps into its pet-friendly approach to selling vehicles. That dog in the back seat is just too adorable for you not to watch this.

Audi's "Commander." In what is probably one of this year's most heartwarming ads, a retired astronaut is given the opportunity to relive his glory days to the tune of David Bowie's 'Starman' and behind the wheel of an R8.

Jeep's "4x4ever." Songwriter Morgan Dorr provides the extremely catchy soundtrack for this commercial. We would love to hear a full version of this song if there was one. The lyrics alone make it a must-hear.

Buick's "The Big Day." Maybe it was a mistake for Jeep to cast 'Blurred Lines' star Emily Ratajkowski for this commercial, because she flat-out stole the show. The TV spot also features New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. and a 2016 Cascada.

Acura's "What He Said." If anyone can think of a better way to introduce the 2017 NSX other than the opening guitar riff of Van Halen's 'Running with The Devil', please tell us because we just can't think of one.
