Super Bowl Ad Superlatives (So Far)

If you're anything like me, part of the reason for watching the Super Bowl is the amazing commercials

Brands shell out BIG for these coveted prime time spots and generally they do not disappoint. 

This year, I decided to take it back to the days of high school yearbooks and rank the teaser commercials with superlatives

Drumroll please . . . Here are the winners! 

 

Feel Good Commercial - T-Mobile

The ad starts off a little slow, but redeems itself by ending in a big dance party.

They took the safe route by not playing on anything political (like Audi or Budweiser).

While it may not stand out as most controversial or edgiest, T-Mobile knows the recipe for a good feel-good commercial. Justin Bieber + dancing = a warm and fuzzy win.  


Funniest Commercial - Buick

Celebrities sell.

Buick knew what they were doing bringing both Cam Newton and Miranda Kerr on board. Buick uses a bit of sarcasm to make this commercial hilariously memorable.

Hit that play button. You just have to  see for yourself.


Edgiest - Mr.Clean

Mr. Clean definitely went with the "sex sells" approach this year. 

A P&G exec explained the goal of the big money shot is to let couples know that "cleaning can be'part of the appeal in a relationship.'"

While some argue that the commercial crosses the line, you can't argue the fact it has already generated a lot of buzz. The ad already has more than 3.8 million views and counting. 


Most Memorable - avocados from mexico

I voted this one most memorable, but the word "memorable" could just as easily have been interchanged with the words "creepiest humor".

The ad has a mind control vibe laced with whispers of not-so-subliminal messaging. 

If you have the desire to stare at Jon Lovitz' face for 30 straight seconds, this will be your MVP of the commercials this year. 


Trendiest - GOdaddy

GoDaddy has some of the most memorable ads from past Super Bowls. Who can forget the gross, uncomfortably long make out session in the 2013 spot

This year's ad plays on the "which color was the dress" phenomenon, the sneezing panda, and other internet famous trends. Check it out and see if you pick up on all the #trendy references. 


There you have it. What do you think? Do you have any predictions for who will have this year's best commercials? 

I can't wait to see the ones that haven't been leaked yet.
