The 2020 Super Bowl was yesterday, featuring the Kansas City Chiefs and the San Francisco 49ers. As most people know, the Chiefs were victorious, winning the game and a celebrate ensued. However, the game isn’t the only fun thing about the Super Bowl. What’s also great are the commercials, where companies save their best ideas, and go all out with celebrities to capture viewers attention for 30 seconds.
This year didn’t disappoint, either. Let’s jump into the best commercials from this year’s Super Bowl.
Hyundai – Featuring Chris Evans, John Krasinski, Rachel Dratch and David Ortiz
“Ah, look at this guy…” Or should we says guys. Featuring John Krasinski, Chris Evans, Rachel Dratch and “Big Papi” David Ortiz, Hyundai brought out some wicked big players to show off their new 2020 Hyundai Sonata, complete with a brand new feature. Our hometown heroes showed off their distinctive and iconic Boston accents as they watched Krasinski pahk his cah with nothing but the clickah. “Don’t worry, he’s got smart pahk!”
Hulu – Featuring Tom Brady
New England Patriots fans, and all football fans for that matter, have had their eyes glued to Tom Brady with the news of him becoming a free agent this upcoming season. Brady posted a black and white photo last week that sparked more rumors, with fans wondering if he was being symbolic by leaving the field into the tunnel, or leaving the tunnel and going out to the field. What we learned last night, was it was all a ploy for his new Hulu commercial. Brady talked about the Hulu service before saying, “I’m not going anywhere,” leaving fans excited for what’s next.
Google – Featuring All The Feels
Google’s commercials have sometimes been known to bring a tear or two to someone’s eyes. However, with their new “Loretta” commercial advertising the Google Assistant, it went to new heights. A man uses Google Assistant to help him remember/show all the things he loved about his Loretta, including how much she hated his mustache, showing photos of the two of them from their anniversary, playing their favorite movie, and more. Although it’s just a commercial showcasing another aspect of Google, it’s a minute and a half that will be sure to warm anyone’s hearts.
Doritos – Featuring Lil Nas X and Sam Elliott
When Lil Nas X first introduced “Old Town Road” with Billy Ray Cyrus it became a huge hit, and Doritos absolutely nailed their Super Bowl commercial using the song and Lil Nas X. What better way to bring out all the western feels than to bring the epitome of cowboy himself, Sam Elliott. Instead of your usual duel, these two have a dance off, complete with Elliott’s mustache doing the wave. That’s right, Sam Elliott’s iconic mustache grooves to “Old Town Road.” Lil Nas X wins the dance off when Elliott’s horse shakes its head no. This commercial definitely brought the laughs during the Super Bowl!
Jeep – Featuring Bill Murray
This year Super Bowl Sunday took place on February 2, which also happened to be Groundhog Day. When you think of February 2, you can’t help but think of the 1993 movie Groundhog Day starring the legendary Bill Murray. Well, so does the vehicle company Jeep. In their Game Day commercial showcasing the 2020 Jeep Gladiator in bright orange, we see a cameo from Brian Doyle-Murray (Buster) and Stephen Tobolowsky (Ned), before Murray (Phill) kidnaps a furry little friend and go on some wild adventures. You can watch the commercial below.
