The Big Game didn’t disappoint. And neither did the commercials. We talked with a few members of the team this morning about their favorite spots.

 

Laura

Ford Go Further

 

Why I loved it:

Funny, relatable, simple, graphic, and of course, inspirational. Great job, Ford!

 

Libby

Live Snickers Ad

 

Why I loved it:

I knew that Snickers was teasing a live commercial, and that could have been intriguing enough on its own, but the direction they ended up taking it was a surprise. Having everything go so (intentionally) wrong because they “shot a live commercial while hungry” was not only hilarious, but still true to Snickers’ “you’re not you when you’re hungry” slogan. The logistics of this ad were crazy, as well.

 

Ryan

Honda – Yearbooks

 

Why I loved it:

It’s a creative take on using celebrities in advertising and it sends a powerful message about chasing dreams, which is part of Honda’s corporate fabric. It also flips the narrative on typically bland car commercials. Really well done.

 

Doug

Tide with Terry Bradshaw

 

Why I loved it:

It wasn’t the Mr. Clean ad.

 

Chrissy

BUSCHHHHH

 

Why I loved it:

While so many of the ads from the Super Bowl took some sort of stand, I thought the BUSCHHHHH spot was a cool, crisp and refreshing break from all things political. Simple, creative, funny and I actually knew who the advertiser was at the end of the commercial. #GAGAKILLEDIT

 

 

There was no shortage of good – and bad – spots for the game. And, there was certainly an emphasis on both humorous and politically charged messaging. What did you think about the latest batch of Super Bowl commercials?
