Ads cost $7M a pop for a 30-second commercial this year, and truthfully, there weren’t that many 30-second spots! Advertisers popped for longer timeslots, and made good use of their time.
It’s pretty tough to beat Seth Rogen & Paul Rudd for sheer enjoyment and charm. Paul Rudd is straight-up adorable ALL the time.
This one got me, because I legit thought it was a Barbie commercial. Then Anna Kendrick popped on screen, and I was on guard, because no way she does a straight Barbie commercial. She’s too cool for that. Sure enough… I laughed.
We don’t even have Sam’s Clubs, but Kevin Hart is still good for a laugh. Or in this case, several of them.
I like Tommy Lee Jones. I like Rashida Jones. I even like Nick Jonas. But I LOOOOOOOOOOVE Leslie Jones. There’s very few people who make me laugh just by watching her exist. So I was delighted by this one.
Yeah, I’m a sucker for nostalgia. So if they reboot a movie I loved as a youth, I’m gonna like the commercial. It doesn’t even need to be that clever. Like this one… Jim Carrey made it funny because he’s Jim Carrey.
Same as the last entry… I liked this because of the nostalgia. I like seeing Seth Green being all old and having a kid as his own. I like that Rob Lowe showed up for one line in this commercial. Mindy Sterling made me smile. I liked it. (Plus, I’m a tree-hugger, and these commercials are important.)
OK, I thought the biggest surprise of the WHOLE Super Bowl was… how hot does Eugene Levy look with long hair?!? I’ve LONG had a theory that there is not one single man who looks better with longer hair than short… only to have it completely flattened with a Nissan commercial!
