Full disclosure: I'm not a huge football fan. My ex got football in the divorce, and I was more than happy to part with it. But, that being said, I will watch the hell out of the Super Bowl and cheer on the underdog (GO EAGLES!). Obviously, the best part of Super Bowl Sunday are the commercials. Companies go hog-wild to create the most memorable ad of the day, and there were plenty last night that did not disappoint. And, a few that did. These Super Bowl commercials made us laugh, cry, yell at the TV, and some of them left us scratching our heads.
Gordon Ramsey yelling at a guy in his 30's who wants to make a grilled cheese? Cardi B rapping? Anthony Hopkins petting a peacock? Yes please, yes to all of that. The only thing that could make this better is if Amazon offered those voices as an Alexa add-on.
Here's something you may not know about me: I have a MASSIVE crush on Peter Dinklage. Like, he's on my laminated list (don't ask why, these things are bigger than all of us). I also love Missy Elliot AND Morgan Freeman. This commercial was hilarious perfection and I will watch it everyday for the rest of my life.
My personal favorite was this Mikaela Shiffrin commercial. Always Be Faster Than The Boys, damn right Mikaela! I can't wait to pretend I know anything about winter sports when the Olympics kick off, and I will be cheering on all our bad-ass women.
David Harbour was amazing in this. It's like one long commercial just ragging on Super Bowl commercials.
Cry-laughed through this entire commercial. Hats off to Odell and Eli for going there and committing to the dance. A+, would watch again.
Like, what the actual hell, Dodge. WHO SIGNED OFF ON THIS? I feel for advertisers, I really do. They have to sell a product, that's their job, and they want to be topical and have their finger on the pulse of what's happening in the world. This ... this wasn't the way to do that.
This was one of those commercials I was super in to, until the end when it was revealed to be a T-Mobile commercial. Loved the message, loved all the cute babies, but honestly, what the hell does T-Mobile have to do with any of the message?? I was confused.
