It doesn’t matter which team you’re pulling for during the Super Bowl. There’s a few things every American can root for on Super Bowl Sunday: there’s an ample amount of little smokies, halftime doesn’t run long, and the commercials live up to the hype. Occasionally, there are those years where everyone on Madison Avenue turns in a dud, and it’s always a way bigger deal than what happened in the actual game. I think we can all agree that the best commercials usually have either animals, babies, or both.
8 Best Super Bowl Commercials Of All-Time:
E-Trade: Baby Buys stock. It’s simple, it’s hilarious, it’s cute.
CareerBuilder: Monkeys. Monkeys in the office. Monkeys don’t understand graph. Monkeys wearing suits and ties. It doesn’t matter what they’re advertising, monkeys should be in every commercial.
Pepsi: Your Cheatin’ Heart. The Coke guy gets caught grabbing a Pepsi. Oh, and he’s a klutz.
Volkswagen: Darth Vader. This combines America’s love for children, “Star Wars,” and the entry-level mid-sized sedan.
Budweiser: Wassup. First you did the “wassup” because it was new and funny. Then you stopped doing it because it’s old. Then, you ironically started doing it again. Now we’re in some sort of post-post-irony 2017 and we don’t really know why we’re still saying “wassup,” but we totally still do it.
Honda: Ferris Bueller Redux. Matthew Broderick was charged with killing two women with his car in Ireland in the 1980s. He somehow overcame this, and starred in a fantastic Honda commercial that really goes to show how well this movie has aged.
Snickers: Who are the chefs? Perfectly simple gag, and it’s still relatable and funny. I prefer these from the “you’re not yourself when you’re hungry” thing Snickers has going on now.
Budweiser: Streaker. Everyone loves when streakers interrupt the game, but no one cares to admit to it.
