One of the most memorable aspects of the Super Bowl is the creative and imaginative commercials. Here are the top ten best ones.
Super Bowl 2021 was memorable for many reasons. Whether it was for The Weeknd’s smashing halftime performance or Diplo’s cursed pre-game bash, the game will be remembered for a hot second. On top of these festivities, the Super Bowl commercials were some of the best to date.
In celebration of the honoured event, we’re counting down our top picks.
Drake from State Farm
Drake joins Paul Rudd playing the “stand-ins” for a State Farm Commercial. It’s hard not to laugh at “Drake from State Farm” with a heart etched on his hair, as he is told that stand-ins don’t have lines.
Big shoutout to my boi @Drake finally making it to the big leagues

Based on the iconic 1990 film Edward Scissorhands, Cadillac brings Winona Ryder as Kim and introduces Timothée Chalamet as Edward’s son Edgar. Edgar is faced with the same sharp challenges his father experienced until Kim buys him an All-Electric Cadillac with cruise control.

The Jason Alexander Hoodie
Seinfeld icon Jason Alexander goes through a whirlwind with his face on the hoodie of a teenage boy in a Tide washing detergent ad. With Believe it or Not playing (the same song used in George’s voicemail on Seinfeld) Alexander gets dog dribbled, sweated, sat, and trampled on.
I want a Jason Alexander Hoodie. Mark my words, Amazon will be flooded with them next week!

Yo, Tide, you missed a huge opportunity to make this Jason Alexander hoodie commercial to be about shrinkage #SuperBowl

Isn’t is funny how objectifying men is acceptable, even entertaining? Gotta love a good double standard.

It Wasn’t Me
That 70’s Show couple Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher along with the legendary Shaggy run through the lyrics of ’90s song It Wasn’t Me as Kutcher catches his wife eating his precious Cheetos. Why they let Kutcher try and sing… I do not know.
In a commercial where everything is not as it seems, Michelob advertises their new Seltzer with an “all-star cast” featuring Usher, Sylvester Stallone, Megan Fox, and a pretty impressive Christopher Walken voiceover.
This one is really funny. Actor Matthew McConaughey is feeling a bit flat… both physically and mentally until he eats 3D Doritos. I never thought I would see McConaughey being sucked by an electric vacuum cleaner while I Want to Break Free by Queen plays.

If Lenny Kravitz tells us we are billionaires, then it must be true. Advertising for Stella Artois, Kravitz plays It Ain’t Over Till It’s Over as he tells us we are rich in life with 2.5 billion heartbeats.
Starring Golden Globe nominee Dan Levy, the Schitt’s Creek actor appears with people who are apologising using M&M’s to soften the blow.
According to the New York Post, a single 30-second commercial in the Super Bowl will cost companies around 4.5 million and a celebrity endorsement ranging between $500,000 to $2 million.
It is no wonder all these celebrities have hopped on board, they will be making more than most players on the field who only receive a $150,000 cash bonus for playing.
