In case you missed it, all the movie spots are rounded up right here, but guess what? There's even more. /Film has done a good job collection the numerous spots from some filmmakers you might have heard of, who earned some extra coin taking on these directing gigs.

Super Bowl Ads

Ah, the Super Bowl. Where nobody cares who really won, but instead the post-game chatter is about M.I.A.'s middle finger (snore), Madonna's halftime show (double snore) and of course, the ads. In case you missed it, all the movie spots are rounded up right here, but guess what? There's even more. /Film has done a good job collection the numerous spots from some filmmakers you might have heard of, who earned some extra coin taking on these directing gigs. So let's take a look.

First up, "Dumb & Dumber" and "Hall Pass" helmer Bobby Farrelly, directs a musical spot set to "I Believe In A Thing Called Love" by The Darkness for Samsung Mobile. "Fright Night" and "Lars And The Real Girl" director Craig Gillespie got to hang out with Jerry Seinfeld and Jay Leno for the an Acura spot.

Meanwhile, Jake Scott -- whose taking on that forthcoming Jeff Buckley biopic -- got behind the camera for two spots: a very expensive looking, period set Prohobition themed ad for Budweiser and a kind of irritating singing ad for Hyundai. Miguel Arteta ("Chuck & Buck," "Cedar Rapids") lensed the pre-game commercial for BelVita.

"300: Battle Of Artemisia" director Noam Murro was incredibly busy with four ads airing during for the game for Pepsi, Chevy (x2) and Kia. "The Thing" remake helmer Matthijs van Heijningen Jr. continued down the genre path with a vampire inspired ad for Audi. Finally, Chris Smith ("American Movie," "The Yes Men") used aliens to get you to buy HEB brand products.

In case you missed it: David Gordon Green's Chrysler ad featuring Clint Eastwood; Todd Phillips' "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" homage with Matthew Broderick; Peter Berg's ad for "The Voice" and the Lance Acord helmed Volkswagen "Star Wars" spot. Watch below:
