Most people are watching Super Bowl for the showdown between the Denver Broncos and the Carolina Panthers, but some of us are watching for the commercials. And this year didn't disappoint with a bizarre smattering of cute animals, strange car commercials and even more out-there celebrity cameos.

Celebrities dominated most of the 2016 Super Bowl commercials with Ryan Reynolds, Amy Schumer, Steven Tyler, Kevin Hart, Willem Dafoe and more big names stealing screen time and a close runner up went to adorable animals. Check out some of the best Super Bowl commercials below.

Cute animals steal the show
The Super Bowl is typically reserved for super cute puppies, fuzzy kittens and the occasional galloping horse, but this year it went to the dogs -- weiner dogs to be exact. The Heinz commercial, which put together the perfect pairing of dogs and condiments, was a heartwarming affair of dachshunds dashing through an open field (wearing hot dog costumes) in search of their owners (in condiment costumes). Mariah Carey's "Without You" playing in the background truly set a sentimental tone.

Perfect use of celebrity cameo
Welcome to "Ryanville!" Putting a hot guy in a car commercial can go a really long way ... especially if that hot guy is Ryan Reynolds. Hyundai showed off their 2017 Hyundai Elantra as it drove through a literal city of Ryan Reynolds characters.

Celebrity cameo times two:
This was a double whammy! Not only did we get Willem Dafoe as Marilyn Monroe, we got Eugene Levy as the cameraman. Willem's portrayal of the "Some Like It Hot" star was odd, but funny in a totally ridiculous way. Equally odd was the fact that this was a Snickers commercial, but again, it just added to the comical nature of this ad.

Best bizarre best friends commercial:
Honestly, we weren't even sure what a marmot was until we watched the outdoor outfitter's Super Bowl ad. Now that we know it's a cute, furry animal that somewhat resembles an oversized chipmunk -- we're in love. The sweet love story between man and marmot was just about the cutest thing ever until she b--ch slapped him. Just watch.

Car commercial that we can't stop talking about:
There was so much going on during the Buick commercial -- we can't even decide what happened. Emily Ratajkowski, Odell Beckham Jr., a bride and groom and a car. What do you think of the wacky commercial?

Bai-golly that made no sense but we laughed:
Bai (the tasty all-natural drink) didn't mess around with what we imagine is one of their first Super Bowl spots. Their rapper-turned-horse whisperer's weird chat about "things that don't make sense" really made no sense, but we loved his horse's fancy footwork.

Best shameless promotion of a product:
No! Anthony Hopkins is not a sell-out! He apparently just enjoys sipping out of a tea cup that has a Turbo Tax label, has a pet pup with a Turbo Tax sweater and has his very own set of slippers bedazzled with TT labels. But no, he would never sink so low to use his celebrity status to promote a product.

Best use of an ensemble cast:
The cast of "The Wire" made a surprise appearance in the Toyota Prius commercial and admittedly Prius powered right back into our hearts. The four actors rob a bank and then turn into media heroes as they evade police for days in a high-speed chase. We guess you really do get good mileage in a Prius.

Drake almost plays himself... but seriously:
T-Mobile scored a big Super Bowl win by putting Drake into their commercial for a funny take on how easy it is to convince celebs to 'change their music' in the name of ads. The commercial definitely gave us a chuckle.
