Move over bubbly beverages—there's a new king of Super Bowl ads for 2011: the automotive industry. After sitting through the deluge of advertising associated with the big game, one thing looks certain, the major manufacturers worldwide want to get you back behind the wheel of something new. And with their debts to Uncle Sam paid off, American brands led the way; Chevrolet in particular, showing off a newfound, sometimes tongue-in-cheek, sense of humor that's refreshing and welcomed from a US car company.

Even non-automotive spots were still rich with car content, (Ed. Note - Chimps are a cheap and easy laugh, Career Builder, but thumbs up any way!) though to avoid opening this up to say, 95% of the ads, we're going strictly manufacturer here. Flip through and enjoy 'em again—or for the first time.
