Best Superbowl Commercials of 2014
The real reason you watched the Superbowl.
With the Seahawks taking an early lead and dominating Denver the entire game, last night's Superbowl was for lack of a better word, pretty boring. With a final score of 43-8, most Americans began looking more forward to the commercial breaks rather than the actual game. (I personally made it to 8pm, when I left for the other room to watch Downton Abbey. No regrets.) Below we have rounded up the best of last night's over the top commercials. See if your favorite made our list!
This one literally made me laugh out loud. Some have remarked that the guy in the commercial was kind of pimping his bull out. I prefer to think of it as matchmaking. (Also, their cancer survivor spot made me tear up. Sorry, not sorry.)
RADIO SHACK "THE PHONE CALL"
Favorite ad of the night! Nothing makes me a fan quite like self deprecation, and Radio Shack did just that when they poked fun at their antiquated image, with 80's icons such as ALF, Chucky, and Teen Wolf raiding their store. Clever and effective.
BUDWEISER - "PUPPY LOVE"
Cutest commercial of the night. (Even though most of us saw it 34234 times online beforehand.)
JAGUAR- "BRITISH VILLAINS"
Two words: Tom Hiddleston. Thank you, Jaguar.
T-MOBILE "NO CONTRACT"
If you were wondering, I was rooting for the Seahawks last night, not because I'm a huge Seattle fan, but because I.hate.Peyton.Manning. The reason? He kicked Tim Tebow out of a job. The only thing that added to the pleasure of watching him get dominated? Seeing Tim Tebow capturing Big Foot and go on other adventures in this T-Mobile ad.
COCA COLA - "GOING ALL THE WAY"
I'm always a fan of a good flashback. This cute little ad shows us a glimpse into the childhood of NFL superstar, Adrian Peterson.
TURBO TAX-"LOVE HURTS"
Such a clever ad. I've been a fan of all Turbo Tax's recent commercials, but this one was definitely the best so far. Also, props for getting John C. Reilly to narrate your ads.
COCA COLA-"IT'S BEAUTIFUL"
I absolutely loved this commercial. I thought it was a really cool sentiment that the characters were from all different cultures and nationalities, but they were all professing their love for America by singing America the Beautiful in their native language. The fact that this ad made people extremely mad on social media kind of shocks me. Isn't America supposed to be a melting pot? I think they missed the message of this ad.
Honorable mentions: Cheerios, Oikos, and the Hyundai dad ad.
