Will Ferrell Stars in Super Bowl Ad that Virtually No One Saw Live

Peter Kramer/NBC(NEW YORK) -- The celebrity who had the most awkward kiss in a Super Bowl commercial this year: Bar Refaeli, who engaged in a prolonged smooch with a nerd in a GoDaddy.com spot.  The runner-up: Will Ferrell, in an ad for Old Milwaukee beer.

Don't remember seeing Ferrell during the big game?  You're far from the only one.  His ad reportedly aired in only three markets: Sherman, Texas; Ardmore, Okla.; and Glendive, Mont.

In the minute-long commercial, Ferrell sports a moustache and basketball jersey -- he resembles his character in his basketball comedy Semi-Pro -- while making out with an older Asian woman on a bus.  Viewers briefly see that a passenger sitting a few rows in front of them is holding a bag containing Old Milwaukee beer.

A Chinese song, identified on Reddit as "Mother, Where Are You?," plays throughout the ad.

Ferrell also starred in a Super Bowl ad for Old Milwaukee last year that aired in one market, North Platte, Neb.

George Clooney Commercial Wins Norwegian Ad Award

Gareth Cattermole/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- George Clooney may win another Oscar later this month, but if not, he's got something else to fall back on: a commercial he shot for Norwegian TV has snagged a Goldfish Award for 2011's Best Commercial.

The clever spot for DNB Bank features an average-looking woman trying to piece together what happened the night before, Hangover-style. Following an apparently wild night, she wakes up wearing a wedding ring.

After a few moments, her new mystery husband appears -- it's Clooney, who, speaking English, tells her he's been looking for houses for them online while she's been sleeping it off.

The ad then reads, "Some people are lucky in life.  For the rest of us, saving up can be smart."
