INDIANAPOLIS (CBSMiami) — For some viewers, the Super Bowl is as much about the ads as the big game. And companies know that, which is why they shelled out an average of $3.5 million for spots during Super Bowl XLVI.

So, how did this year stack up? Love them or hate them, this year’s commercials are getting a lot of buzz. Sunday’s game featured a mix of stars, dogs, vampires and practically everything in between. There was something for everyone.

Celebrities plugged all sorts of products in the 2012 Super Bowl commercials.

Matthew Broderick’s “Ferris Bueller”-inspired spot for Honda found the actor revisiting his signature film. Jerry Seinfeld and Jay Leno, meanwhile, made appearances in an Acura ad, starring as two car collectors in a bidding war.

Sex sold, too, during this year’s Super Bowl spots. David Beckham nearly bared all in a sexy spot for H&M, and Go Daddy went the racy route with a seemingly nude model.

And you can’t forget about the animals. This year, the Super Bowl ads really went to the dogs.
