Although Super Bowl LIII may not go down in history as one of the most exhilarating Super Bowl games, there were still some noteworthy commercials (and that’s all that really matters, right?). Football fan or not, who doesn’t enjoy a witty, thought-provoking, or just all around well-executed commercial?
We’ve compiled a list of our 5 favorites below. Check them out and see if you agree.
1. Bud Light, “Special Delivery”
Bud Light centered their commercial on the notion that it doesn’t use any corn syrup in its beer while their competitors, like Miller Lite and Coors Lite, do (suggesting that the ingredient makes for an inferior, less delicious beer). According to Fortune, Bud Light didn’t account for one important fact: Corn syrup is used in other beers made by Bud Light’s parent company. Hypocrisy aside, the commercial is sure to grab and keep your attention with its creative plot and special effects.
2. Stella Artois, “Change Up The Usual” 4. Pampers, “Stinky Booty Duty” Whether you’re a fan of Adam Levine, John Legend, Chrissy Teigen, or just a mob of dads singing about “stinky booty,” you’re sure to get a kick out of Pampers’ Super Bowl ad.
Carrie Bradshaw and The Dude both walk into a bar. What happens next? Well, certainly not what you’d expect. Stella Artois decided to target their not-so-usual market with this commercial. So Stella isn’t your normal choice of beverage? Why not change it up and try something new.
3. The Twilight Zone, “Technical Difficulties”
Viewers watched with a feeling of slight anxiety and annoyance as their screens begin to cut out with a blank screen reading, “CBS IS OFF THE AIR.” Oh wait, no. This is just a commercial for Academy Award winner Jordan Peele’s revival of The Twilight Zone.
5. Burger King, “Eat Like Andy”
What do Andy Warhol, legendary American artist, director & producer, and Burger King’s Whooper have in common? Not much, except that they both starred in a Super Bowl LIII commercial this year. This 1982 video clip brings back memories of glass ketchup bottles and BK’s retro logo.
4. Pampers, “Stinky Booty Duty”
Whether you’re a fan of Adam Levine, John Legend, Chrissy Teigen, or just a mob of dads singing about “stinky booty,” you’re sure to get a kick out of Pampers’ Super Bowl ad.
