2/4/18 O&A NYC LIFESTYLE: The Best Super Bowl Commercials (2018)

Every Super Bowl has three elements 1. the game (of course) 2. the halftime show and the final component the commercials.  Here are a few of our favorites.

DORITOS BLAZE vs. MTN DEW ICE | Super Bowl Commercial with Peter Dinklage and Morgan Freeman

I bet you didn’t expect to see Peter Dinklage channeling his inner Busta Rhymes or Morgan Freeman tackling Missy Elliott’s “Get Ur Freak On,” but you’re getting both this Super Bowl Sunday! The two will go head-to-head in a lip sync battle of sorts as they promote Doritos and Mountain Dew.

Stand By You- Budweiser 2018 Super Bowl Commercial 

Budweiser is going for the heartstrings with this ad about providing water to places across the United States that were impacted by natural disasters — specifically Texas, Florida, Puerto Rico, and California. Skylar Grey provides a cover of Ben E. King’s “Stand By Me” for the ad. According to Budweiser, their Cartersville, GA brewery has provided more than 79 million cans of water for relief efforts since 1988, including two million last year.

Alexa Loses Her Voice – Amazon Super Bowl LII Commercial

The biggest star in Amazon’s teaser for it’s Super Bowl commercial is Jeff Bezos, the company’s founder and CEO. But considering the premise of the ad, which imagines the company’s efforts to find a replacement if Alexa ever lost her voice, and the fact that Amazon is one of world’s richest companies, it’s a pretty safe bet that there will be more star power coming on Super Bowl Sunday.

Lexus LS 500 F SPORT / Marvel Studios’ Black Panther Commercial

Lexus is piggybacking on one of 2018 most-hyped films, Marvel’s “Black Panther,” for their Super Bowl ad this year. The car company’s spot will feature the movie’s star, Chadwick Boseman, in an action-packed ad that should get the engines revving for comic book fans.

Febreze – The Only Man Whose Bleep Don’t Stink-  Super Bowl 52 2018 Ad

This year’s Febreze ad goes hard in the “Bathroom Humor” department. (It’s about pooping.)

 Redemption- James Cromwell Stars in PETA’s 2018 Super Bowl Ad

James Cromwell, the vegan actor who received an Oscar nomination for his role in the 1995 movie Babe, headlines a PETA ad that’s sure to generate some controversial buzz in the wake of the Super Bowl. It features a meat marketer attending confession at a church and revealing the dark secrets of his (unnamed) company’s shady packaging practices. PETA says the purpose of the ad is to convince meat-eaters to “seek redemption by choosing the only truly humane meals: vegan wings, vegan hamburgers — vegan everything.”

M&M’s – Human

This year’s M&M’s ad sees their signature red M&M character magically transform into Danny DeVito thanks to a “lucky” penny. Maybe even better than the commercial is DeVito’s explainer of how he got into the role. “Becoming Red was something really natural for me because I kind of look a little bit like him. Actually I’m in better shape than Red, but don’t tell him—he’s a little bit paunchy,” Devito told People. “But listen, we worked that out. I put on a couple, I ate a couple good dinners, got a little bit chunky. I was looking like a good Red.”
