The Best Super Bowl Commercials

After years of defeat, the Philadelphia Eagles have secured their first Super Bowl Championship. Yay! As exciting as the game was, my previously anti-football-minded self looked forward to the intermittent sprinkling of advertisements: the very basis of my initial Super Bowl Sunday interest! As the commercial breaks passed one by one, I wasn’t thrilled. Why would you have Morgan Freeman but without Morgan Freeman’s voice! They were hardly living up to the caliber I had expected (see Betty White Snickers circa 2010 or Doritos Time Machine from 2014!). Regardless there were several diamonds in the rough that made me both chuckle and shed a proverbial tear in the sense that I did not actually cry because-hello-public!

So (IMO) the best Super Bowl Commercials from Super Bowl LII in no particular order because I am indecisive:

1)    Avocados From Mexico

2)    Budweiser, “Stand by You”

3)    Tide, “It’s a Tide Ad”

4)    Amazon Alexa, “Alexa Loses her Voice”

6)    Bud Light (not the conclusion to the epic saga I wanted but it still deserves a spot on the list, sigh)

8)    Winter Olympics (Purely because I am obsessed with The Greatest Showman)

In conclusion, there were some good ones, but we want them all to be good! With the exorbitant price of 5 million dollars for 30 seconds, I should be seeing some quality content!!
