This year’s Super Bowl was full of excitement, questionable
decisions, and game changing performances. The game was pretty interesting too.
The most coveted, most expensive time slot for advertisers is on Super Bowl
Sunday. Some ads were an instant touchdown, while others were deserving of a
15-yard penalty. Check out our list of our favorite ads from the night, in no

it’s no wonder Budweiser’s latest Super Bowl submission was just as powerful as
all their other ones. The famous Clydesdale continues to be a huge success when
representing the resilient American spirit.

Jennifer Coolidge can do no wrong. Her
appearance, along with a plethora of other famous celebrities including Gwyneth

simple, and you knew exactly what they were trying to tell you. Uber Eats now

Picking Jerod Mayo to star in Hellmann’s
commercial about tackling food waste was almost too easy. It was relatable and
actually gave some helpful tips to avoid food waste. But the best part hands
down was when Mayo tackled SNL’s Pete Davidson, which he responded with, “I get
it, I’m very hittable.” Great ad all around.

What’s not to love about this commercial?
You’ve got an adorable robot dog, an adorable real dog, and Bonnie Tyler’s
“Total Eclipse of the Heart,” playing in the background. It was unexpectedly

Hats off to the KIA Marketing team!
Last but certainly not least was one of the
most talked about ads of the night, the moving QR code from cryptocurrency
exchange, Coinbase. The ad was genius and played on the soaring popularity of
QR codes. The ad was so successful and received so many conversions, the
Coinbase app crashed from the amount of traffic it received. We can’t wait to
see what they do next year.
