Yes, it's time for some Monday morning quarterbacking ... about which high-priced commercials produced for Super Bowl XLVIII worked, and which didn't. Such is the anticipation among what is one of the largest TV audiences of the year, that many advertisers posted their ads online in advance, or even teaser ads for the ads, to build buzz before Sunday's broadcast.

Jaguar: "Rendezvous" (Above)
Jaguar goes all-out in its first-ever Super Bowl commercial. Directed by Tom Hooper (an Oscar-winner for "The King's Speech"), the ad stars three actors who have turned up in super-villain roles: Ben Kingsley (the Mandarin in "Iron Man 3"), Tom Hiddleston (Loki in the "Thor" movies), and Mark Strong (Lord Blackwood in the Robert Downey Jr. "Sherlock Holmes").
Viewers are also directed to a web site, britishvillains.com, which exclaims, "It's good to be bad." Good to keep in mind as you get behind the wheel of what the automaker calls "a new British villain": the F-TYPE R Coupe. [Agency: Spark 44]
Chrysler: "America's Pride"
Bob Dylan stars in a commercial that bleeds Detroit pride in showing Americans making cars. I'm not sure what American watchmakers and brewers will feel, however, about Dylan's offer that Switzerland and Germany can have those markets.
