Well, this is quite the quandary.
Usually, at the end of the Super Bowl, I post my ten favorite Super Bowl commercials. However, this year, most of the commercials were kind of bland. There were a few that were undoubtedly terrible and tasteless. I definitely could have done without the commercial that suggested the best way to honor Martin Luther King, Jr. was to buy a pickup truck. And there were a few commercials that were cute. Fortunately, we didn’t have any of the condescending “super woke’ commercials that we had to deal with last year. But, at the same time, there was a general lack of brilliance this year.
In fact, the majority of my favorite Super Bowl commercials were for movies and TV shows. But I already posted all of those. Posting them again would be … well, kinda of exhausting.
I was tempted to just not post a favorite commercial list this year but … well, if you know me and my tendency toward compulsive behavior, you know not making a list is never an option with me.
So, here are six commercials that I did like.
1. T-Mobile “Evil Babies Planning On Taking Over The World and Killing Everyone In Their Sleep”
I liked this commercial because it was hella creepy.
2. Doritos Blaze “Don’t Fuck With Peter Dinklage”
3. Mountain Dew Ice “Morgan Freeman: The Cold, Hard Truth”
4. Tide “No Exit”
5. Sprint “Ex Machina Part Two”
6. Solo “Oh my God! It’s Donald Glover”
