The countries eligible include Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, India, Mexico, the United Kingdom and of course the United States.

    I don't want to enter your contest, but have 2 favs. The one of the baby crying until the car starts (I have experienced that myself), and the one of the little boy as an astronaut. My husband like the one of the lady having the baby. Please consider my opinion for the one you will air during the superbowl. The one of the guys screaming at each other, and the one that the guy is a zombie? and grunts are the most stupid!!!
