So, where do this year’s commercials rank before the game? Here are the 10 best commercials of Super Bowl 50, so far (The Guardian):
- Adobe: “Wager”
This worried executive has a lot riding on the big game, but it’s not the score. Adobe continues its campaign to know what your advertising is doing.
- Honda: “Somebody to Love”
Honda broke out singing sheep this year. Top off singing farm animals with Queen karaoke and you’ve got a catchy spot.
- Heinz Tomato Ketchup: “Wiener Stampede”
Super Bowl commercials have a soft spot for puppies, so it’s no surprise Heinz’s adorable stampede of dachshunds have sprinted into the public’s hearts.
- Shock Top: “Unfiltered Talk”
Witty banter and creative ad-libbing provide an easy-to-enjoy, on-brand message from Shock Top.
- Budweiser: “Simply Put”
When it comes to common sense, who better to express the responsibility we all have to not drive drunk than Helen Mirren? Maybe it’s the accent, but her admonishment to those who drive drunk comes off as classy rather than preachy.
- Kia: “Beige Socks”
Christopher Walken is firmly against beige decisions, which he explains with perfectly timed delivery. And, he has a sock puppet. Need we say more?
- Rocket Mortgages: “What We Were Thinking”
Ever wonder about the process behind a company’s commercial? Rocket Mortgages gives you an inside look while proving mortgages aren’t rocket science.
- Avocados From Mexico: “Avocados in Space”
Aliens from across the galaxy come to wonder at the human race and some of our greatest accomplishments. If you like sci-fi and guacamole, the Avocados From Mexico commercial is definitely worth a viewing.
- Apartments.com: “Movin’ On Up”
Jeff Goldblum sings and plays piano as he’s hoisted up to the top of an apartment building to join Thomas Jefferson and Lil’ Wayne for a barbeque. Well played, Apartments.com.
- T-Mobile: “Restricted Bling”
Drake does what he can to please his fans, and T-Mobile’s rival networks. Even if it means butchering his own song.
Of course, there is more to enjoy on game day than these 10 selections. Catch up with all of the national advertisers for Super Bowl 50 here.
