The 13 Best Commercials and Movie Trailers from the Super Bowl
Didn’t catch the Super Bowl? Don’t worry—we watch it so you don’t have to. Here are the best commercials from the big game!
There are two kinds of people in this world: Those who watch the Super Bowl for the football, and those who watch the Super Bowl for the commercials. However, I also realize that within that second category, there is a subset of people who WOULD watch the Super Bowl for the commercials, but who don’t bother to do so anymore because of this wonderful thing we have called the Internet. And that’s where we come in! Didn’t have the patience to sit through several hours’ worth of football just to watch the commercials? Here are all the best commercials (including David Beckham’s ad for his line of bodywear for H&M. Yum!) from the Super Bowl, rounded up for your viewing pleasure. We’ve also included all the trailers from this year’s most hotly anticipated movies, like The Avengers and The Hunger Games. Got a few minutes to kill? Read on!
1. Volkswagon: The Dog Strikes Back
Didn’t think that Volkswagon could top last year’s Darth Vader Kid? Well, think again, because they just might have. I have no idea what Star Wars has to do with Volkswagon, but I’m kind of okay with that. Because… well, just watch.
2. Honda: Matthew’s Day Off
3. John Carter Trailer
Disney’s next live-action venture, John Carter, could be kind of interesting. It’s based off of one of Edgar Rice Burroughs’ (the creator of Tarzan) pulps from the early half of the 20th century—something Disney hasn’t used as inspiration for a long time. It harkens back to vintage Disney, and that’s pretty cool.
4. Skechers: French Bulldog Races
This is the dog that replaced Kim Kardashian. I don’t know about you guys, but I think it’s an improvement.
5. H&M: David Beckham Bodywear
Gratuitous shots of David Beckham in his underwear? Yes please!
6. The Avengers Trailer
Heck, who ISN’T excited about this one?
7. Hulu: The Hulubratory, featuring Will Arnett
Hulu has long been known for its hilarious, yet slightly troubling commercials (aliens taking over the planet? Aaaaah!), and somehow, they manage to keep getting better with each one. Case in point: Will Arnett. He sounds a little bit like he’s trying to be Alec Baldwin, but it’s still fabulous. Maybe it wouldn’t be such a bad thing if Hulu took over the planet after all…
More awesome Super Bowl commercials, including the introduction of the new M&M character and a trailer for The Hunger Games, up next!
