5 Super Bowl Car Companies Driving Ad Spending

Toyota
Number of ads: One 60-second ad
Number of cars sold in 2013: 2.24 million

The good news for Toyota is that it kept momentum going with a 7.4% U.S. sales increase in 2013. The downside? That still didn't keep its market share from slipping from 14.4% to 14.3% last year.

The Detroit Three and competitors such as Nissan are seeing sales recover and taking small bites out of Toyota's third-in-the-U.S. market share. There's only one thing that can cheer a company up when it wins, but still loses: Muppets.

Thanks to some trouble with Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem band's tour bus, Crews is stuck commuting Gonzo, Rowlf, Zoot, Animal, Pepe The Prawn and a whole lot of chickens through a rousing musical number. His neighbor, Kermit The Frog, is not amused.
