Now that the the big game is over, let’s discuss the real reason for watching Super Bowl XLIX. The commercials! Here is our list counting down from 10 to 1 of the best ads to air during the game. So sit back, relax, and relive Super Bowl Sunday through these ads!
10. Tie between the Walter White and Lindsay Lohan “Sorta Isn’t You” ads.
While Lindsay Lohan was being a good sport and poking fun at her own image of being a bad driver, we got to see Walter White return to us in his prime to dole out prescriptions…sorta…
9. Toyota Camry “How Great I Am” Featuring Amy Purdy and Muhammad Ali.
The voice-over of the “Greatest of All Time” narrates this spot featuring Paralympic Champion Amy Purdy as she shows us how unstoppable she can be despite having a disability.
8. Chevy “What would you do if your TV went out right before the Super Bowl?”
So, Chevy had approximately 115 million people (including this author) in an utter state of panic with their Super Bowl ad. Luckily, it was a hoax to promote their 4G LTE Wi-Fi equipped Colorado..but yea..don’t do that to us again!
7. Snickers “The Brady Bunch”.
Snickers went full on nostaligia with their ad that reminded us of the age old adage that it’s ALWAYS about Marsha and NEVER about Jan!
6. Budweiser “Best Buds”.
If anyone knows how to pull on those feels, it’s Budweiser. Regardless of whether their beer tastes any good or not. Puppies and Clydesdales! Their marketing department knows their stuff!
5. Tie Between Microsoft’s “Braylon O’Neill” and “Estella’s Brilliant Bus” Commercials.
Both these commercials had empowering messages of how technology is being used to make our lives better. Certain to jerk a tear from even the driest eye.
4. Dodge “Wisdom”.
Sharing with us 100 years worth of wisdom, these seniors remind us of how young they truly are. You are never to old to put the pedal to the metal!
3. Nationwide Insurance “Invisible Mindy Kaling”.
Mindy is every woman who has ever felt invisible in this world…and who has also wanted to kiss Matt Damon. At least we can settle for a selfie!
2. Mophie “All Powerless”.
So when the end of days comes, we know it’s just that God forgot to charge his phone. Also, God has a nice afro!
1. Always “Like A Girl”.
If there was one commercial that really captured what it means to be a girl, it was this one. Us girls don’t think of being female as a deficit. We ALWAYS play full out and beyond, just as any guy would!
There you have it. Our Top Ten with a few extra. If you agree or disagree, or if you have your own list, feel free to discuss in the comments!
