Elton John made a Super Bowl commercial appearance in Pepsi's new ad, playing a harsh King who's pretty stubborn when it comes to his music taste. It's simple: If you can't sing, not only do you not get any Pepsi but you get dropped down into a dungeon.

When Melanie Amaro walked in and blew the crowd away with her stunning rendition of "Respect" by Aretha Franklin, John merely said "Fine" and gave her a Pepsi can... only to get fooled by singer. Amaro dumped the King into the dungeon where, for some reason, Flavor Flav was staying.

For years, viewers have tuned into the NFL's Super Bowl as much to see what the advertisers roll out as how the two teams vying for the sport's top prize perform. This year was no different. Each time that NBC cut away from Super Bowl XLVI between the New York Giants and New England Patriots a hush came over most Super Bowl parties as everyone -- and not just the diehard sports fans with a rooting (or betting) interest -- focused entirely on the ads.

While iconic Super Bowl commercials like Apple's '1984' and Coke's ad starring Mean Joe Greene will be remembered so many more are soon forgotten or, even worse, ridiculed as super fails.
