My 10 Favorite Super Bowl 2014 Commercials
The ads are as much of a draw as the game itself so I watched the Super Bowl and missed most of the ads. Brands were paying over $4 million per commercial, and that was just for the 30 second spots. ALL THE MONIES! During the game, I ended up all distracted so I missed most of the ads but thanks to Mashable, I watched every one of them afterwards.
Basically, I watched all of them so you don’t have to. We won’t e’em talk about that super creepy Scientology ad or the pointless Chobani one with the bear. WE WILL NOT! But here are ten ads I did enjoy for various reasons. Watch them and let me know which is your favorite.
Budweiser’s Puppy Love
I’m not crying. YOU ARE! Sharrap and go buy me a puppy and a horse and a farm. TOO cute!
Jaguar’s British Villains
That was badassery at its finest! I loved it. Accents, men in suits and fast cars. Such a cheap thrill and I am here for it.
Dannon’s Full House
Because why is Uncle Jesse still this FAHN after all these years? Also, the tweenager in me squealed at Danny Tanner and Joey. Full House was my show so this reunion took me back!
This little girl is just TOO cute! I might even go buy Cheerios and then use them for crafts because eating them isn’t an option. You know they’re basically donut-shaped mini cardboards. So dry and tasteless. But these commercials are adorabo!
Kia’s Luxurious Morpheus
Iunno much about cars but never have I heard “Kia” and “luxury” in the same sentence. BUT this commercial had me cackling as Morpheus belted out an Opera like his last name was Pavarotti. I enjoyed it.
Duracell’s Powerful Story
“They told me it was over, but I’ve been deaf since I was 3. So I didn’t listen.” WIN! Complete win for Duracell. Derrick Coleman’s story is super inspiring and now I wanna go out and buy batteries for no reason.
Maserati and Quvenzhane
DAAWWWW! I admit that if this commercial didn’t have Quvenzhane in it, it wouldn’t even matter much to me. Maserati definitely knew what they were doing by picking her for this ad because would we care otherwise? Probably not. But Q made it worth watching.
H&M with David Beckham
Because David Beckham is shirtless.
Coca Cola’s America is Beautiful
This commercial was hella thoughtful. I loved the fact that different languages were singing “America the Beautiful” and they get an A+ for the feels. People who were mad about this commercial for not being just in English (see: Twitter) are foolish IJOTS. The end.
RadioShack’s 80s Throwback
“The 80’s called… they want their store back?!” HEEEE! I surely forgot that RadioShack exists so it’s good that they’re making fun of themselves. Also, Hulk Hogan is in it and I was actually excited to see him. Those years where he had a reality TV show on VH1 lost Hulk some cred, man.
But yeah. Did you watch? What was your favorite ad?
