What Was Your Favorite Super Bowl Commerical?

I got back from a Super Bowl gathering a few minutes ago, and it seems natural for me to talk about commercials before moving on to heavier topics tomorrow (like marriage and all-you-can eat dinners).

Before I reveal my favorite commercial, I should probably explain a few circumstances:

  • I avoided watching movie trailers. I accidentally saw 1 amazing second of the new Star Wars teaser before darting out of the room. I did the same for Infinity War and Jurassic World 2. So they may have been awesome, but I didn’t see them.
  • There were about 15 adults and 5 little kids at the gathering, so the people volume was much louder than the commercial volume. It’s quite possible there was some very clever dialogue in the commercials, but I didn’t hear it.
  • The food was excellent, so I’m sure I missed other commercials while filling my plate.

Anyway, all of that added up to me laughing the hardest at this commercial. Well done, Tide:

    Jamey,

    Far and away, the series of Tide commercials with one of my favorite Strager Things’ actors were my favorite. I’m looking forward to the Solo movie as I did watch the trailer, and there were quite a few laughs during the night. Admittedly, last night’s game ws one of only a handful I’ve ever watched in its entirety and that’s only because Philly is my home town.

    Cheers,
    Joe

    My favorites weren’t really about the commercials themselves… The first was one I knew about beforehand, the Westworld season 2 trailer. It was the first HBO Superbowl commercial in 20 years! It’s nice to know that there was enough interest to spend that much money advertising a philosophical sci-fi show.

    The other is probably the most underappreciated Superbowl commercials ever… The trailers for the Cloverfield Paradox! The first is a surprise first look at a somewhat secret project, made more surprising by the fact that it would skip it’s planned theatrical release and go straight to Netflix “very soon”. Then another trailer at the end of the game ended with a character telling you to go home right now, cutting to a screen informing you that the movie is available for streaming “right now”! I feel like most people don’t realize how huge that is for the future of movies and the growth of streaming platforms.

    P.S. The Cloverfield Paradox was very good. Lots of questions were answered, and you might even learn a thing or two about quantum entanglement!

      I avoided watching the Westworld 2 trailer, as I didn’t want any spoilers. I’m really looking forward to it!

      It’s really cool that Netflix announced Cloverfield Paradox during the Super Bowl and released it immediately afterwards! I look forward to watching it.
