This is the time of year when every magazine, newspaper and web site picks their 'Top Ten' lists, and Adweek has released their picks for the Ten Best TV Commercials of 2011.

From fun stop-motion animation to cats with thumbs, the ads below were dreamed up by some of the most creative minds in advertising. 

Here are three great commercials you might have missed.

First is a British spot for Cravendale Dairy. If cats get opposable thumbs, it's all over for us.

Next is a really clever ad from TalkTalk that uses stop-motion animation to tell the story of dolls brought together by technology.

This Chipotle ad also uses stop-motion animation. And Willie Nelson!

To see the entire list, head over to Adweek. What are your favorite commercials of 2011?
