We can start counting the time until Super Bowl LI, on February 5th, 2017, in weeks – not months. That means the season has officially begun and, Super Bowl commercial junkies that we are, we’re already looking forward to the 2017 Super Bowl commercials. While companies like Wix, Avocados from Mexico, Kia, Skittles and Snickers are starting to announce that they’ve bought ad time this year, there is no final word on all the brands who will advertise in Super Bowl LI. As the brands start to prepare for the Big Game here is a list of…
The 7 Super Bowl 2017 Commercials We Can’t Wait to See
For the third consecutive Wix Super Bowl commercial, the website building experts are already making waves! They made history on January 17 when they became the first brand to ever release the creative for a Super Bowl ad over Facebook live. Then, they broadcast this action-packed clip starring Wonder Women (AKA Gal Gadot) and Jason Statham.
Wix announced on their blog that there is lots more in store, too, which is why this is one Super Bowl commercial that we simply can not wait to see! Oh, yeah, and did we mention that their ad will be directed by Louis Leterrier? He’s the guy who did the Transporter films, Unleashed or The Incredible Hulk.
Last year, Wix teamed up with DreamWorks animation to create a hilarious Super Bowl parody ad starring the cast of Kung Fu Panda.
By the way, Wix has also launched a Super Bowl contest and is giving away as much as $50,000. All you have to do is change your profile pic to enter, so it seems like a no-brainer, right?
Budweiser took a risk last year with their 2016 Super Bowl commercial. Leaving cute puppies in the dust, they created one ad starring Helen Mirren as a PSA against drunk driving and a second hardcore commercial designed to highlight their product and promote it as “not to be sipped” and “not for everyone.”
Will the puppies be back for the 2017 Super Bowl or are they “Lost Puppies” for good? We’ll just have to wait to find out!
Last year’s Super Bowl was markedly low on the flesh factor. Unlike during the 2015 Super Bowl when we were treated to lust-inducing ads by Carl’s Jr., Victoria’s Secret and Game of War, their 2016 Super Bowl commercial was rather PG. We’re placing our faith in Victoria’s Secret that they’ll come back for the 2017 Super Bowl in full force.
In the meantime, we still enjoy watching (and re-watching) their 2015 Super Bowl commercial:
Intel was one of the first brands to release a teaser for their 2017 Super Bowl commercial and it’s got us waiting – in baited breath – for Game Day. Why? Because it stars a very sexy Tom Brady. And he’s not in uniform, either. In fact, he’s doing some pretty mundane tasks like brushing his teeth and eating a pancake. ‘Course since he’s Brady – it’s epic. This is just the teaser, so needless to say we can’t wait to see the complete Intel Super Bowl commercial!

5. Mountain Dew
Mountain Dew managed to Kickstart something unforgettable with their quirky, hilarious Super Bowl commercial last year. (Was there an office in America where people weren’t going around saying, “PuppyMonkeyBaby” after last year’s Big GAme?) Since we thought their was the funniest commercial of Super Bowl 50, we definitely have high hopes for the 2017 Mountain Dew Super Bowl ad.
Steven Tyler had us Dreaming On about what Skittles would come up for with their Super Bowl 2017 commercial. Skittles has taken on a creative (and vastly different) approach in each of their past two Super Bowl campaigns. In 2016, in addition to the funny sing-off between Steve and his self-portrait, they also had DeMarcus Ware and Luke Keuchly deliver some hilarious weather forecasts.
With these original, integrated campaigns from the rainbow-colored candies, our expectations are sky-high for Super Bowl LI.
You never know who might star in a Snickers ad. From Betty White and Danny Trejo to Steve Buscemi and Willem Dafoe, they’ve also had a great cast on board to help them remind us that “you’re not you when you’re hungry,” so you better have a Snickers on hand to curb your ravenous rage. Will they continue to promote this tagline in a Snickers Super Bowl 2017 commercial? Or will they try a new route?
How can Snickers possibly outdo Marilyn Monroe?
