The Super Bowl is one of the most watched events on American television. Although it was a great game, many people get as much, if not more, enjoyment from the commercials than the game.
The Best Cameo Commercials:
Lindsay Lohan: Esurance
Lohan’s Esurance commercial featured her speeding through a school zone like a distressed soccer mom. Esurance used her as an example for getting coverage to fit you, “not someone kind of like you.”
Walter White: Esurance
Esurance had some of the best overall commercials of the game. After Lohan’s appearance, they had a second commercial featuring White as a local “pharmacist.”
Kim Kardashian: T- Mobile
Kimmy K’s big appearance in T-Mobile’s commercial to advertise roll over data (that can be used to follow her along with all of her selfies) was a huge win.
Liam Neeson: Clash of Clans
Neeson undoubtedly impressed with his Clash of Clans commercial where he adds a different flare to his speech from the movie Taken.
The Cutest Commercials:
Puppy Love: Budweiser
Budweiser once again hits home with a commercial about a yellow lab who gets lost. It comes down his clydesdale friends to help save him from the terrors of the outside world and bring him back home.
The Funniest Commercials:
Fiat definitely impressed (and shocked) many viewers with their commercial that advertised their “super sized” 2015 500X.
The Brady Bunch: Snickers
Snickers put an old fashioned twist on their classic commercials when they incorporated the Brady Bunch into their advertisement.
The Most Powerful Commercials
Like a Girl: Always
Always’ commercial that presented the difference between older girls and boys running, fighting or throwing like a girl when compared to little girls that haven’t gone through puberty yet.
Preventable Accidents: Nationwide
Nationwide’s commercial was a little bit dark. It presented a kid telling us how he’d never grow up, leaving the audience waiting for the happy ending. Instead, Nationwide presented that most child deaths are a result of a preventable accident. Powerful, yes. Pleasant, no.
Overall, the commercials this year for the Super Bowl were definitely ones for the books.
