This game had it all. There were crazy comebacks and phenomenal catches. There was heartbreak and heroics. Most of of all, there were questionable decisions. It’s safe to say that this game will be talked about for quite some time.
But, the truth is, that’s not all it had. You can’t forget about the commercials. They deserve their own conversation. So, we’ll get the ball rolling here, with our top seven commercials from this year’s Super Bowl.
1. Mophie, “All-Powerless”
Have you ever felt like the world was coming to an end because the battery on your phone was about to die? Well, Mophie took that notion literally, as the apocalypse was going down because God’s phone had no juice. That’s one way to take a personal issue and portray it on a grand scale.. You better get that Mophie if you want a battery that lasts longer.
2. Esurance, “Say My Name”
If you’re looking to grab our attention, all you ever need to do is throw Bryan Cranston on the screen and let him reprise his award-winning role as kingpin Walter White. Esurance is all about making sure you get what’s right for you, no more of this “sorta” nonsense. We heard their message loud and clear. Now, if you’ll excuse us, we have a Breaking Bad marathon to start.
3. Fiat, “Blue Pill”
Well, Fiat, that’s one way to let the world know that you’re increasing the size of your car. All you have to do is accidentally drop a little blue pill in the gas tank, give it a moment to take hold, and, bam, it’s game time. That guy certainly wasn’t expecting his Fiat to increase in size, but we’re sure he didn’t mind it. And neither did the surrounding females.
4. Snickers, “The Brady Bunch”
Snickers continues to put new spins on its bread and butter, “you’re not you, when you’re hungry,” advertisement. This time around, it’s taking the throwback route, as we’re plugged into an iconic moment in The Brady Bunch saga. Marsha is pissed after Peter hit her in the face with a football, so she turns into the angry, axe-wielding Danny Trejo, and he’s out for blood. No worries, all he needs in order to calm down is a Snickers bar. As usual, things always work out for Marsha. And, of course that doesn’t sit well with Jan, we mean, Steve Buscemi.
5. Nationwide, “Invisible Mindy Kaling”
Because she was always ignored, Mindy Kaling assumed she might literally be invisible. So, she acts that way. However, she’s in for a rude awakening when she attempts to lock lips with Matt Damon. Turns out, she wasn’t invisible at all, just treated as such. If you feel that way, too, we guess all you need is Nationwide.
6. Kia, “The Perfect Getaway”
Pierce Brosnan is action. Pierce Brosnan is adventure. Pierce Bronsnan is Bond. James Bond. But, despite what Brosnan thinks, the role being pitched his way, is no 007. He’s just a regular guy in a Kia, making his way toward “the perfect getaway.” But, have no fear, there will still be fireworks.
7. Avocados from Mexico, “First Draft Ever”
The first draft in history was a doozy, as each nation is picking the animal or plant that’s going to best represent them. In the end, the winner, and steal of the draft, was the avocado. And with that pick, Mexico came out on top. Inventive, smart, and timely, this advertisement was an absolute touchdown. And more importantly, it has us craving guacamole. That’s how you do it.
