Super Bowl: Six Shittiest Musical Commercials

But that's only part of the big-game experience. After all, we Americans are so well-trained to love marketing that most of the country actually gets hysterically excited about Super Bowl commercials.
Not all those ads are good, though. And in case you missed 'em, here are the six shittiest musical Super Bowl commercials.
