Additionally, half of overall respondents went to YouTube to continue watching SuperBowl ads. The film-related commercial they were most eager to search and watch again was “The Amazing Spider-Man 2,” followed closely by the spot for “Transformers: Age of Extinction.”

    Don't get Superbowl over here so wouldn't know what they aired. Would imagine the 30 second spot though,like the other movie trailers. I watched'em all online afterwards. J-R!

    Transformers was just a 30-second commercial. That's why I was asking which Spidey spot aired on tv - if it was the 3.5 minute one then of course it would be the one more people remembered.

    I read it was Transformers that was the most remembered one,then Spidey. Of course,I remember no such thing as Transformers. What's that again? Some kinda transformation do-hickey for women? The extended trailer for Spidey was just TIGHT! J-R!
