Super Bowl Sunday is moments away and we can hardly wait for the kickoff! Well, sort of. Mostly, we can’t wait for the Super Bowl commercials!
We’ve spent the last few weeks waiting impatiently for Super Bowl teasers and ads to be released. We haven’t missed a beat, and here’s our official round-up of the Best Super Bowl LII commercials – so far.
1. The Amazon 2018 Super Bowl Commercial
Chef Gordon Ramsey, Cardi B, Rebel Wilson and Sir Anthony Hopkins – oh my! This star-studded cast (Jeff Bezos included), draws its humor from the premise: What would happen if Alexa lost her voice? Cue Amazon’s Plan B, said all-star cast. Help with cooking at home? Enter Chef Ramsey. Need some mood music for a party? Rebel Wilson is on it. Want to call your man? Sir Anthony will be your loyal assistant.
2. The Kia 2018 Super Bowl Commercial
Who doesn’t reminisce about the glory days of their youth? Kia goes full-throttle with their Super Bowl advert featuring a grizzled Steven Tyler in their newest whip – the 2018 Kia Stinger. Tyler steps out onto a desert racetrack, gets behind the wheel of the Stinger, revving this 365 horsepower beast. But just as we think he’s about to take off down the track, he shifts to reverse and races down the track in reverse and defies time itself. Kia’s got the vehicle to revisit your youth.
3. The Mountain Dew – Doritos 2018 Super Bowl Commercial
Are there any GOT fans out there that don’t love the Dinklage? No! Now picture your favorite Lannister getting his Doritos Blaze-on and rapping in the flames. And, that’s not all. We’re taking GOT references all the way. Fire and ice. Cue, Morgan Freeman opening a bottle of Mountain Dew Ice singing us some Missy Elliot. It’s an epic, unbeatable pairing for any snack craving.
This one is more about playing the ad game, then the actual ad itself. After last year’s action-packed Super Bowl ad starring Jason Statham and Gal Gadot, Wix made several very public announcements that it would opt out of Super Bowl 2018. And then, two days before the Big Game, they revealed a huge, surprise Super Bowl ad! Turns out, Wix is back in the game with an advert featuring one of the biggest, most “mythical” YouTube duos – Rhett and Link. Nice play – Wix!
Everyone loves a good throwback and Pepsi does just that. In this year’s Super Bowl spot, Pepsi pays homage to the King of Pop, goes back to the future with a drag race between Jeff Gordon and the Delorean and features everyone’s fan favorite when it comes to Pepsi icons, Cindy Crawford. Jimmy Fallon narrates this pop culture tour through memorable moments in the past, current and future generations.
NOTE: We will be updating this list as more ads get released. Of course – be sure to check back on Monday, after the game, for our list of the 2018 Best Super Bowl commercials!
