SUPER BOWL 50 is set to take the world stage Sunday night and here to get us all excited for the Big Day are these brand new Commercials to get us into the spirit! Packed with celebrity, corporations went all-out securing that starpower as they should for the biggest day in Sports… err to Football fans!
DORITOS DOGS. You’ll fall in love with these three rescue dogs who star in this spot, determined to overcome that pesky “NO DOGS ALLOWED” signage at the grocery store!
SUPERBOWL BABIESft. SEAL. Make sure to use that handy Closed Caption feature on YouTube when watching this. Imagine this, a choir of babies conceived Super Bowl night all joining together as a choir featuring SEAL himself to “Kiss from a Rose“!
THE BUD LIGHT PARTY ft. AMY SCHUMER + SETH ROGEN. Two of our favourite funnypeople join in this spot for Bud Light. Enjoy their big “caucus”. “It’s not too big… you can handle it”.
GIVE A DAMN ft. HELEN MIRREN FOR BUDWEISER. Dame Helen Mirren delivers it deadpan and straight. Drinking and driving is for the stupid.
DRAKE FOR T-MOBILE. Taking the line “You used to call me on my cell phone” from Hotline Bling perhaps a little too literally, Drake gets the perfect package from this American Wireless Service.
CHRISTOPHER WALKEN FOR KIA. Don’t you wish Christopher Walken was there for you every time you misplaced your keys?
STEVEN TYLER FOR SKITTLES. The Aerosmith frontman reacts to a singing portrait of himself… made of Skittles!
As you know, I know and continue to know v. little about Football. Let me make my annual prediction, which usually is right! I always judge victory based on the players’ outfits… and this year I love the Carolina Panthers!! Sorry, Denver Broncos! You can never go wrong with Turquoise. BYE!
From the Creators of Ice Age and Rio comes the star-studded Epic from 20th Century Fox. The Animated Feature follows a Teen Girl who finds herself transported into the Forest, where she joins forces with a variety of Characters to save the World. Epic features the voice work of Amanda Seyfried, Jason Sudeikis, Steven Tyler, Josh Hutcherson, Judah Friedlander, Colin Farrell, Pitbull, Beyoncé, Aziz Ansari and recent double Oscar Winner, Christoph Waltz.
Epic follows a positive new wave of young Female-fronted Animated Action Adventures and the time couldn’t be better with Disney‘s Brave just winning Animated Feature at the Oscars on Sunday night and going on to gross a massive $535-million worldwide. Fans already are drawing visual and thematic parallels to The Spiderwick Chronicles and Avatar. And while The Hangover 3 will be catering to an R-Rated Audience, Epic offers Families an option this Victoria Day at the Movies.
Although it’s only been a few months since they were here last, Toronto certainly loves their Aerosmith and tonight the “Bad Boys from Boston” played before yet another huge crowd at Air Canada Centre for the second leg of their Global Warming Tour. Frontman and former American Idol Judge Steven Tyler made it into the City early yesterday and was spotted eating at Camros, an Organic Persian-inspired Eatery on Hayden Street.
Tyler was spotted following tonight’s Show, where Aerosmith performed Jimi Hendrix Tribute in celebration of that Rock Legend’s Birthday today. Although his Handlers earlier in the day had intercepted Tyler‘s time with Fans, he stayed true to his word, making time for Fans at his Hotel afterward shortly before midnight. “You crazy F*ckers!”, he joked as he head-over all Rock-Glam in fur to reward Fans generously who waited in the cold for him.
I was lucky enough to get a Snap with Tyler, whose work as a Vocalist I’ve admired since Childhood – reaching feverish heights in High School. He gave me a big hug and playfully took the hood on my Parka and covered my face, telling me he loved me! Unforgettable. Surely Nicki Minaj‘s opinion of him would change after meeting him too? The Rapper/Singer and current American Idol Judge currently is feuding with Tyler over a statement he made challenging her ability as a Judge, saying “If it was Bob Dylan, Nicki Minaj would have had him sent to the Cornfield!“. Minaj interpreted that as a Racist Remark and took to her Twitter account to prove her point.
In celebration of Jimi Hendrix‘s Birthday, Aerosmith incorporated a Tribute to that Rock Legend at their Show tonight and they are headed to Las Vegas next this weekend. Their 15th Studio Disc Music from Another Dimension! is now in-stores with latest Single What Could Have Been Love performing rather well on the Adult Contemporary Charts in the U.S.
