10. Chevy Sonic: How can you not love a car skydiving out of an airplane, doing barrel rolls and bungee jumping?
11. Oikos Greek Yogurt: That John Stamos is still so cute. Especially when he’s being viciously head-butted by a girl.
12. Doritos: Grandma slingshotting the extraordinarily cute baby to grab the chips from the bratty kid was amusing.
