5 Super Bowl Ads that are KGSR Approved
One of our favorite parts of the Super Bowl, aside from the game and halftime show, are the commercials. Sunday night may go down as the night the "underdog" Philadelphia Eagles upset the New England Patriots to win the Super Bowl 41-to-33. But it was also the debut of a number of hilarious and moving commercials that are sure to be talked about throughout 2018.
Check out some of our favorites below.
1. SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY Teaser Trailer
The biggest movie trailer was for "Solo: A Star Wars Story", which comes out May 25th. It may have been the only commercial during the game that WASN'T online weeks before the broadcast. So it was actually a surprise.
2. Touchdown Celebrations to Come
One of the best 'commercials' was actually just a promo for the NFL. They had Eli Manning and Odell Beckham, Jr. of the Giants practice a touchdown celebration which turned out be the "I've Had The Time of My Life" dance routine from "Dirty Dancing", complete with "the lift."
3. Toyota - Good Odds
Lots of ads went the emotional route and brought tears to our eyes during the game. The very first commercial was a really great Toyota ad about Lauren Woolstencroft, a skier who's won eight Paralympic gold medals.
4. Rocket Mortgage
We also loved the commercial for Rocket Mortgage, where Keegan-Michael Key took confusing stuff and translated it into everyday languages like pretentious hairdresser-speak, pretentious vegetarian food, rap lyrics, and dating profiles.
5. DORITOS BLAZE vs. MTN DEW ICE
Then there was the lip synch rap battle between Peter Dinklage from "Game of Thrones" and Morgan Freeman, representing Doritos and Mountain Dew.
It worked because they're the two celebrities LEAST likely to engage in a lip synch rap battle. And because everything Morgan Freeman does is cool.
