For some, the Super Bowl is about big burly men battling it out on the football field for the ultimate glory. For the others, it’s mostly about the commercials. And this year was no different. With Kanye, Zendaya and Scarlett Johanson on the roster, it sure looked promising. Here are the top 8 ads that premiered during the big game. 

8) McDonald’s

If someone can overshadow the Super Bowl, it’s probably Kanye. Apart from his recent Instagram controversy and drama, the multiple Grammy award-winning artist was seen in waiting line for some McD.

7) Amazon

Scarlett Johansson and husband Colin Jost featured on what can only be described as an episode of Black Mirror featuring Amazon Alexa. Here’s what we mean:

 

6) BMW

Arnold Schwarzenegger and Salma Hayek playing a retired Zeus and Hera? Sounds good to us. BMW pulled out all the stops with this one. So, when are we getting this, but as a movie, BMW?

 

5) Budweiser 

You thought “Welcome to Flavour Town” was just a Guy Fieri catchphrase? Think again.

 

4) Hellmann’s Mayo

In a spot we wish Kanye had starred in, former Super Bowl champion linebacker Jerod Mayo tackles a lot of people, including a grandma and Pete Davidson for wasting food.

3) Lays 

An ad featuring Seth Rogen and Paul Rudd reminiscing about the good ol’ times. Need we say more?

 

2) Squarespace 

What’s worse than a tongue twister? An entire ad featuring a tongue twister. But what if we told you it was directed by Edgar Wright and features Zendaya? Got your attention, right?

1) Coinbase 

Remember that cold open from The Office (US), featuring a DVD logo? What if that was an ad? Sounds boring? Think again. This Super Bowl ad was so successful that it crashed Coinbase’s website!
