While the Super Bowl was a super bore, there were still a few bright moments -- thanks to Bruno Mars and a couple creative commercials.

Was it the best year for ads? No, but these spots still had us either cracking up or shedding a tear.

Check out our picks for the Best Commercials of 2014 below.

And click here to see all the movie trailers that debuted this year -- from "Transformers: Age of Extinction" to an awesome "Captain America: The Winter Soldier." 

The Best Spots:

Radio Shack's "The Phone Call" was an '80s nostalgia fest -- and we LOVED it!

Packed with cameos from people like Hulk Hogan, Erik Estrada, Mary Lou Retton and even horror icons like Jason Voorhees, Chucky and Slimer, the retailer poked fun at itself with the spot, which was easily one of our favorites of the evening.

Did we mention it also has ALF in it? 'Nuff said.

Oikos went with nostalgia too -- but they did it '90s style.

The Greek yogurt company brought the men of "Full House" together again for a reunion, proving Jesse Katsopolis (John Stamos) hasn't aged ... and Danny Tanner (Bob Saget) still loves to clean.

Is it ever possible to go wrong with puppies?

Budweiser improved their classic Clydesdales formula by throwing an adorable golden retriever pup into the mix -- showing how cute it can be when horses and dogs become best friends. Everybody now: Awwwwww!

TurboTax reminded us all to do our taxes -- and was funny doing it!

We gotta give the company credit for making something so boring pop, comparing watching a Super Bowl without your home team in it to watching your crush go to prom with someone else. 

The little Cheerios girl who caused ridiculous outrage because she had biracial parents is back -- and cuter than ever.

This time, her dad tells her that she's going to be a big sister. Her reaction is perfect, just watch.

Coca-Cola's "It's Beautiful" showed Americans of all ethnic backgrounds singing "America the Beautiful," and featured a gay family. The company's mission was to show that "the only thing more beautiful than this country are the people who live here."

It, of course, prompted controversy -- but we think it's, well, beautiful.

And, lastly, the one that made us tear up. Thanks, Microsoft.
