Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks may not have advanced to the Super Bowl but the standout rookie did make the broadcast, appearing in American Family Insurance's Super Bowl commercial.

Wilson is shown about 17 seconds into the ad throwing a football around with a young boy. While he's only featured for a few seconds, plenty of people noticed Wilson in the new ad.

Is he more likely to make it back to the Super Bowl in another ad or in a helmet?

As the San Francisco 49ers and Baltimore Ravens battled for the right to lift the Lombardi Trophy, Super Bowl advertisers competed for another prize: your attention. Each time that CBS cut away from Super Bowl XLVII to pay the bills (or because the lights went out), another group of blockbuster commercials and movie trailers were unveiled (although many had been teased). At your Super Bowl party, were people paying closer attention during the game or the commercial breaks?

While memorable Super Bowl commercials like Apple's '1984' and Snickers' spot that featured Betty White will be remembered so many more are soon forgotten or, even worse, ridiculed as super fails. Will this ad make this year's best list? Is it controversial? Or, even worse, destined to be forgotten?
