Our Top 5 Super Bowl Commercial Picks

Like most of #merica, we celebrated the Super Bowl yesterday by eating our weight in buffalo dip. Seriously, we might have eaten an entire buffalo. Did anyone else feel like a snake who ate a goat? We stumbled into bed last night and woke up feeling like we had weights attached to our stomachs! We watched Katy Perry reenact Katniss Everdeen’s flaming entrance into The Capitol and had two questions: Where’s Peeta? And why is she riding Aslan from The Chronicles of Narnia? We played corn hole (and lost), put $5 into a Super Bowl squares game (lost again), and watched in shock at the final anti-climactic play that ended the game (didn’t it feel like the whole Super Bowl lost right at the end?). But we (and everyone else) won big with the commercials. And, to celebrate this post-Super Bowl Sunday, we’re sharing our top five from last night and why we loved them so much.

5. Middle Seat // Doritos

We traveled A LOT last year (see a full list of our adventures here!) So much so that when people asked what we called home, for a while, it made more sense to say Southwest (the airline) than the southwest (the desert). Needless to say, we boarded multiple planes on a weekly basis, and despite our best efforts to get an entire row to ourselves, it rarely happened. So we totally identified with this toenail-clipping, Irritable Bowel Syndrome book-reading man who (knowing someone’s going to sit next to him), does his best to get just the right person in that seat… or so he thought. The whole room howled during this one.

4. Real Life Pac-Man // Bud Light

Jordan’s parents played Pac-Man on their first date, so that game will always have a special place in his heart, but this commercial goes beyond that. It’s like every child’s dream: a combination of a hedge maze, the Nick Arcade video zone, and Kurt’s Dance Dance Revolution from Gilmore Girls. We’d definitely start making time to exercise if we could skip the gym and do this instead. It’s even better than Orange Theory.

3. Internet // BMW

In 1994, we were learning cursive and how to subtract double-digit numbers. We wouldn’t dial-up for Internet on our home phone or run Windows 98 for another four years. That’s why we love this commercial, because it reminded us just how much can change in 20 years — and yet how much stays the same!

2. First Draft Commercial // Avocados From Mexico

If our first place winner didn’t pull on our animal-loving heart strings, this would’ve been the top pick in our Super Bowl commercial draft. Because it’s brilliant. The entire concept. What would you have drafted first if you had a pick? We went back and forth between kittens and avocados, but settled on avocados. It was Jesus who said that man cannot live on bread alone. Bread and guacamole, though. Now that’s a different story! Ultimately, though, we agreed that we would’ve traded our first round pick for a second or third rounder. Ya know, to wait for ice cream to be invented. Patience is a virtue, friends.

1. Lost Dog // Budweiser

And the winner is… the cute puppy! Again. Obviously. This little yellow lab is like the Meryl Streep of Super Bowl Commercials. Budweiser can just run a variation of it every year (with the puppy in a slightly different lead actor role) and it’s going to get our vote. There’s just so much to love about big and small animals of completely different species taking care of each other. Need more proof? Look at one of our favorite Buzz Feeds of all time and try not to cry. We dare you.

Bonus: Emotional Commercials for the Win

Even though we said we’d be sharing our top five, we just also had to share two other commercials that made Amy (and the rest of the girls at the party) completely tear up. Because nothing says “Super Bowl” like a room full of emotional women, right? It’s time to grab your tissues and get ready for a sudden onset of goosebumps in sixty seconds or less!

 

And there you have it! Have a great week, friends!
