With the exception of UNC athletics, the World Cup (¡Viva España!), and the Super Bowl, I don’t watch sports. Cheering on my Tar Heels is a given. I’ve cheered on Spain alongside my dad for every World Cup for as long as I can remember. But honestly the only reason I watch the Super Bowl is for the ads, halftime show (Katy Perry / Missy Elliot duet killed it), and buffalo chicken dip. I spent more time watching the ads than the actual game. The following ads are what I believe were the top 10 ads of the bowl game.
Doritos: Middle Seat
Doritos never fails to impress me with their Super Bowl commercials. Category: humor. Grade: A.
Dove Men+Care: #RealStrength
The daddy’s girl in me got a bit emotional during this ad.
Clash of Clans: Liam Neeson
The Taken reference and mispronunciation of “Liam” are what make this ad great. Kudos to this mobile game app.
Bud Light: Real Life PacMan #UpForWhatever
Let’s face it—we all wish this would happen to us in real life.
Budweiser: Best Buds
Combine an adorable puppy and Clydesdales into an emotional short story and you’ve got yourself this tear-jerker.
An important message for girls of all ages. Well worth the watch.
I feel like news is more sad than happy these days, but Coke reminds us of the importance of sharing positivity.
eSurance: Walter White
After the final season finale of Breaking Bad, I never thought I’d get another chance to see Walter White appear on television. Thank you, eSurance, for making this happen.
Avocados from Mexico: #FirstDraftEver
Close but no cigar, polar bear.
T-Mobile: Kim Kardashian
Kim K. mocking her selfie-obsession is too funny to not include.
Fiat: Blue Pill
As stupid as I thought this was, I still got a good laugh out of it.
P.S. – Sorry Snickers, I’m not much of a Brady Bunch fan.
