Stash magazine, which covers the world of animation, visual effects and motion design, has picked its nine favorite commercials of the year.

The list includes everything from Jack Daniel's Tennessee Honey's "King Bee" spot to Canal+'s "The Bear" and the Snickers "Focus Group" ad.

It's all well worth a look.
