The Steelers will not be playing in the Super Bowl this year, but Pittsburgh will have a reason to tune in for the big game on Sunday because this will not be just about the Broncos and the Seahawks. It's about which company will come up with the most amusing ad so that we consider buying its product.
So much for betting on the teams, I've got my money on capitalism!
Here are the best ads to keep an eye out for this coming Sunday.
1. Dannon Oikos — Spill
In a teasing teaser, John Stamos is doing what he does best, making women swoon... until he takes his pants off.
2. Budweiser — Puppy Love
When I think of beer I always think of heartwarming moments and sappy love songs, don't you? Adorable puppies and horses and how they become friends, that's what Budweiser is all about, obviously.
3. 2015 Hyundai Genesis — Dad’s Sixth Sense
It's sentimental, OK? The super dads preventing disasters... still wondering whether featuring supermoms and calling it Mom's Sixth Sense would be closer to reality.
4. Jaguar — British Villains ‘Rendezvous’
"Have you ever noticed in Hollywood films that all the villains are played by Brits?" Well, Jaguar has, and they want you to know --“It’s good to be bad.” I would have to agree.
5. Bud Light — Arnold Schwarzenegger Ping-Pong
Anything involving Schwarzenegger is a must see. He is not quite a Terminator in this one though, a bad rug, stilted moves and not a very attractive pair of legs. Is that what Bud Light does to you?
6. Cheerios — And a puppy..
OK, so this is basically an ad selling you cardboard rings for breakfast, almost as terrible as rice cakes. (But seriously though, who actually likes rice cakes?) This kid is pretty darn clever though.
7. New Castle — Anna Kendrick non-commercial
Well done, New Castle. This clever satire on a “cancelled” Super Bowl commercial is very well played. You can decide whether Anna Kendrick is just hot or beer-commercial hot?
8. Ford — Rob Riggle
The teaser for this James Franco commercial is enough to intrigue. I just hope it’s not another copycat Old Spice commercial theme.
9. Doritos — Finger Cleaner
This will be just one of the many Doritos commercials that air during the big game. But this one is a Yikes.... makes me cringe.
10. SodaStream — 'Sorry, Coke and Pepsi’
This commercial may or may not be airing during the Super Bowl, but it is definitely worth mentioning. This controversial ad has rumored to be banned due to the line, ‘Sorry, Coke and Pepsi.’ The network seems to be a little scared of the consequences of calling out two of their biggest sponsors. You may see a censored version of the ad, but here is the better version.
