Product: Coca Cola
An advertisement for classic coke bottles was set to the tune of “America the Beautiful,” sung in 8 different languages by a wide landscape of people from diverse ethnic backgrounds. Patriotic and truly reflective of today’s America.
Scarlett Johansonn is sweet and sexy per usual in the commercial for SodaStream vamping and camping it up to make the spot steamier in a blatant sales pitch that pokes fun at itself. Fun and fun to look at.
Bud brings out the big guns by once again bringing out the Clydesdales, but upped the ante significantly with a little puppy. As long as your gag reflex was under control, this adorable story of a dog and his horse was a winner.
Product: Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee
Jerry Seinfeld and George Costanza hang out at their old diner haunt during the Super Bowl in this spot seemingly about nothing that simultaneously signals a long-awaited Seinfeld reunion and teases Jerry’s web comedy series, Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.
Product: Jaguar F-Type Coupe
Brit movie villains, Ben Kingsley, Tom Hiddleston, and Mark Strong gang up to make a powerful case for villainous luxury in Jaguar’s commercial for their F-Type Coupe. Kingsley kills it when he closes the spot, saying “It’s Good To Be Bad.”
