This year, the commercials aired during the Super Bowl may have gotten more attention than the game itself. Which businesses were the real winners of this year's Ad Bowl?

One day after the Super Bowl, our analysts convene for Monday's edition of Investor Beat, to discuss the top business and investing stories from the market today.

The Seattle Seahawks were the winners of Super Bowl XLVIII by a wide margin -- that much is clear. What is less clear is which businesses came away winners from the "Ad Bowl," the unofficial competition for the best commercial to air during the game. In this segment, Motley Fool analysts Jason Moser and Taylor Muckerman talk with host Chris Hill about how the market is reacting to some of the best commercials from Super Bowl Sunday, whether or not one clever expensive ad can really have an impact on a company's bottom line, and why Twitter (TWTR -0.30%) may have been the real winner here, despite not airing an ad at all.
