Five Best Super Bowl Ads: T-Mobile, Loctite, Snickers, BMW & Clash Of Clans
Super Bowl XLIX Sunday night between the New England Patriots and the Seattle Seahawks was interspersed with a number of entertaining commercials. Below are five of the best ads of the night.
Comedians Sarah Silverman and Chelsea Handler starred in the T-Mobile commercial that wasn’t the one featuring Kim Kardashian. In the ad, Silverman and Handler duke it out over who gets the best reception in the most unique rooms in their fancy digs – including a hydroponic kale garden and a subterranean petting zoo.
The commercial for glue company Loctite was one of the more offbeat spots of the 2015 Super Bowl ad lineup. It featured a lot of dancing in fanny packs while the glue was used to fix broken glasses, a unicorn pin, and even a marriage. “When you have the right glue you have no worries,” according to the spot.
“In this special episode, we find out what happens to Marcia and Jan when they’re hungry. Let’s just say it’s not pretty,” Snickers advertised their Super Bowl XLIX ad. Snickers stayed true to the idea behind their previous ads, which is that people are not themselves when they need a Snickers. In this case, Marsha Brady becomes Danny Trejo and Jan becomes Steve Buschemi.
BMW’s commercial for their new i3, “Newfangled Idea,” cleverly used some old footage of Katie Couric and Bryant Gumbel trying to wrap their heads around the idea of the Internet and the “@” sign back in 1994. In the present, it’s the technology behind the i3 that’s giving them some trouble.
Clash of Clans
Liam Neeson starred in the commercial for the mobile game Clash of Clans, channeling the intimidating persona of his Taken character, ex-CIA agent Bryan Mills, to threaten his virtual opponent.
