Here we are back with the TOP 3, this time around it’s Superbowl ads. As most of us know by now, the Denver Broncos defeated the Carolina Panthers in Superbowl 50. While many vegas goers heavily favored the Panthers to come out on top, it was actually the Broncos (defense) who stole the show. This year did not come close to the hype nor the amount of viewers of last years Superbowl between the New England Patriots and the Seattle Seahawks- mainly because the GOAT Tom Brady didn’t play… but hey, that’s my opinion. Nielsen, the infamous ratings collector, has reported that 49% of American TV’s tuned into the game this year. Many football fans were disappointed in the overall pace of the game most likely because Denver lead throughout. What also let down viewers of SB50 were the ads, which usually draw in outside crowds to screens; however, I am here to let you know the TOP 3 ads amongst all the junk. Lets run it:
NUMBER 3: Amazon’s #AskAlexa
While this Advertisement was not the funniest through and through, the hook was when Dan Marino enters Baldwins “Baldwin Stadium” filled with all sorts of food- including breaded wings. Marino hates on Baldwin for this wing of choice and Baldwin fires back asking Alexa how many championships Marino’s won with Alexa replying, “Dan Marino has won zero championships”. Laugh out loud funny, perfect execution. Overall, not the greatest commercial, but showing off Amazon’s innovative Echo device while making fun of QBs some consider better than TB12 is good enough to make it into my TOP 3.
NUMBER 2: The #BudLightParty
Seth Rogen and Amy Schumer team up as political candidates to promote the #BudLightParty. With political fever rampant in America, this serves as a perfect mockery of how crazy some ads and promises are. Shouting lines like, “We got the biggest caucasus in the country!” and reiterating President Thomas Whitmore’s classic speech from Independence Day. Great duo, Great commercial.
NUMBER 1: #BALLOGIZE
Ahhh Stevey you done it again. What a comeback since this year’s Miss Universe blunder. While nobody besides the entire country of Columbia actually cared about the mistake, you still found ways to make up for it. Now with this TMobile commercial not only making fun of yourself, but sending shots Verizons way- I think you done nailed it. I really appreciate someone who can come back after making a mistake and make fun of yourself for it. Kudos to you Stevey.
