Featuring an awkward "birds and bees" conversation between a curious son and his side-stepping dad, KIA's Super Bowl "Space Babies" ad has all the trappings of a viral smash.

Mixing sci-fi elements with tongue-in-cheek storytelling, the ad -- one of the more elaborate narrative ads of Game Day -- stars cute babies and baby animals galore.

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?
