Let’s face it! Not all of us are Football experts, but every year the Super Bowl rolls around, there’s plenty for us to look at and be excited. We for one are thrilled about Lady Gaga‘s Pepsi Halftime Show which we’re predicting her to make a real statement! While the funny commercials usually are a given with the likes of KIA stepping it up and then some with Funnywoman Melissa McCarthy in a big-budget starring role, others like AUDI and BUDWEISER went a more political route with a pro-equal pay and immigrant message in their spots, making good use of their position and voice.
Check out some of our favourite TV Spots from this year’s SuperBowl:
BUDWEISER DOES IT AGAIN! With the Super Bowl coming this weekend, we know one thing is for sure every year – Budweiser will unleash an emotional fury that will have us weeping allover our Keyboards. This latest Super Bowl TV Spot features their trademark Clydesdale horses, but focuses on an adorable little Labrador who gets lost and goes on an adventure, when ultimately he encounters a scary wolf in the woods. You simply won’t believe what happens next… The pairing of a softened version of 500 Miles covered by Sleeping At Last... OMG. I can’t continue typing… I am a mess. And you will be too!
Watch it for yourself:
We absolutely can’t wait to see Katy Perry‘s Halftime Performance! Here’s a Teaser:
We were asked recently by Woodbine Entertainment along with fellow members of the Horse Racing World what our Picks. More on that here.
Last year’s Budwiser Clydesdales Super Bowl TV Spot had me in tears and although I didn’t cry as hard this time, I still am a mess after seeing what they had to offer us this year. Many of you might remember the running Story in Budweiser‘s Super Bowl TV Ads. A Farmer raised an adorable Clydesdale Pony, but they Pony had to grow-up and achieve his destiny of being a Show Pony. One day their paths crossed again and well… I can’t even retell it without tearing up. Watch it here.
The Clydesdale Pony returns home, where his Owner and Friend gets a new Golden Retriever Puppy. The Horse and Dog form an unlikely friendship. I cannot handle this:
This other TV Spot gives a Hero’s Welcome Home to returning Soldiers and those BudweiserClydesdales once again play a pivotal role:
The fitting Hashtag #BESTBUDS is being used to promote the TV Spot. I don’t drink Budweiser, but cannot deny they nail it every year. Love it.
