There are two kinds of people who watch the SuperBowl: the excited football fans, and the commercial/halftime show addicts. I don’t know about you but I’m definitely the second option. Not that I don’t love touchdowns and field goals and whatever other sports terminology they use, but can you name something better than Peter Dinklage and Morgan Freeman in a rap battle? Probably not.
We had some pretty great commercials this year which ranged from comedic, to heart warming, and totally bad-ass. Take a look at some of our favs!
AMAZON – “ALEXA LOSES HER VOICE”
Enjoy Gordon Ramsay yelling at middle aged men and Cardi B making fun of your life choices while being temporary replacements for Amazon’s Alexa.
M&M – “HUMAN”
I will never be able to un-see Danny DeVito as the red M&M now. Don’t worry Danny, if you lead me to the direction of these life changing pennies I won’t try and eat you.
TIDE – “IT’S A TIDE AD”
Our favourite on-screen deputy takes over in these epic advertisements. Who knew every commercial with clean clothes is a Tide ad?
MICHELOB ULTRA – “THE PERFECT FIT”
Chris Pratt and Beer? ‘Nuff said.
BUDWEISER – “STAND BY YOU”
Leave it to Budweiser to warm our hearts once again. They highlighted that since 1988, their workers have provided U.S cities affected by national disasters with more than 79 million cans of water. They’re hoping with some new developments that their numbers will be even better in 2018 – Way to go, Bud!
AUSTRALIA – “TOURISM AUSTRALIA DUNDEE”
Chris Hemsworth and Danny McBride make a trip to Australia all too enticing.
DORITOS – “DORITOS BLAZE VS. MTN DEW ICE”
Dinklage spits fire while covering Busta Rhyme’s verse in ‘Look At Me Now’ while Freeman’s ‘Get Ur Freak On’ cover has us all #shook. Can we call it a tie?
COCA-COLA – “THE WONDER OF US”
Coca-Cola is representing everyone in this amazing ad! The commercial talks about how the world has over 7 billion unique humans, and there’s a flavour of coke to match everyone’s taste. This one cannot go un-watched!
SQUARESPACE – “MAKE IT”
Can all future motivational speeches given to me come from Keanu Reeves epically riding a motorcycle?
BUD LIGHT – “THE BUD KNIGHT”
It goes without saying that clearly The Bud Knight is cooler than we’ll ever be.
