It's not easy coming up with a winning Super Bowl spot.
Every year, advertisers pay upwards of $4 million for commercials during the most-watched annual broadcasting event in the country. There's a lot of pressure to create a spot that viewers will remember for years to come.

The one-minute clip, created by advertising agency Argonaut, shows what would happen if the company's German engineers tried to create the perfect Super Bowl commercial using an algorithm. What follows is an imperfect storm of Carmen Electra, puppies, babies, sumo wrestling and more.
