The Super Bowl is watched throughout American for the halftime show, the football game and most importantly, the commercials.

In 2015 a record 114.5 million people tuned in, or roughly a third of the US population, making it an advertisers dream platform. This year, $5 million will only buy 30-seconds of airtime.

Throughout the years, many commercials from the Super Bowl have become more than just ads. Some of the commercials will make viewers laugh, while others can leave you feeling horribly sad. The E-Trade’s talking baby ads, which debuted in 2007, was hilarious and partially creepy. While the Volkswagen’s Darth Vader ad from 2011 left us cheering.

Take a look back at some of the most iconic commercials from the Super Bowl.
