Whether you're a fan of one of the teams who've made it into the Super Bowl or you only plan to watch the big game in hopes of getting back some sense of normalcy, one thing's for sure. You're probably looking forward to seeing some of this year's commercials. If your anything like me, you'll only be watching the commercials.
You also may not even know what teams are playing in the game. (It's the Kansas City Chiefs and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.) However, if you plan on only tuning in to check out The Weekend's halftime performance, have no fear! We've put together a list of all the Super Bowl commercials you don't want to miss this year:
1. Dr. Squatch Commercial For Manly Men
Who doesn't love a commercial that features a grown man holding a rubber duckie and calls your body soap sh*t? After hilariously reminding viewers that they aren't a dish but a man, they explain that Dr. Squatch's natural soap is for all the manly men out there.
It's the kind of bar soap for men who like to build things and open pickle jars, but also let their daughter's braid their hair. It may not be the Budweiser frogs, but it's definitely up there!
2. Vroom Torture Commercial
Vroom's Super Bowl commercial hilariously compares buying a car to being tied up and tortured. The commercial may have missed its mark though as we all know that buying a car is far worse. Still, it'll certainly give you a bit of a chuckle!
If you aren't familiar with the company, Vroom specializes in buying cars online after which they deliver them right to you at home. They eliminate the process of going to a dealership altogether, which is an absolute godsend.
3. Paramount+ Mountain Expedition Commercial: Part 1
Have no worries. This isn't a commercial for a network putting out another streaming service that we need to pay for to enjoy. It's actually an already existing streaming service. CBS All Access is being rebranded and will officially become Paramount+ on March 4.
The commercial depicts characters from some of our favorite shows climbing Paramount Mountain, indicating what shows will be available to stream on the new network. Some of those you may recognize in the commercial include Jeff Probst, Gayle King, Trevor Noah, James Corden, Beavis and Butthead, and Dora the Explorer.
Snooki of the Jersey Shore even manages to make an appearance, perhaps hinting at the reality star getting her own show!
4. Paramount+ Mountain Expedition Commercial: Part 2
Part 2 of this Paramount+ commercial brings us to the top of the mountain, where Patrick Stewart has summoned all the stars of this new streaming service. More stars appear in this second half including Tom Selleck, Ethan Peck, Christine Baranski, and the creepy girl from The Ring.
Based on what we see, some shows we can expect to be available on Paramount+ include Beavis and Butthead, Blue Bloods, Dora the Explorer, The Good Fight, Star Trek: Discovery, Star Trek: Strange New Worlds, S.W.A.T., All Rise, The Daily Show‘, Reno 911!, and Survivor.
5. Paramount+ Mountain Expedition Commercial: Part 3
I promise this is the last Paramount+ commercial on this list, but I just couldn't resist. I mean, puppet frostbite!? It really doesn't get better than that!
The streaming service will offer highly anticipated new shows such as the drama depicting the making of The Godfather films titled The Offer, and the Grease spinoff Rise of the Pink Ladies.
6. Bass Pro Shops and Cabela's Emotional Nature Commercial
It wouldn't be Super Bowl in 2021 without a commercial addressing the global pandemic that has rocked the world. Bass Pro Shops and Cabela's does just that with their call for people to get back to nature.
They really know how to pull at the heartstrings, reminding us that being cooped up at home doesn't have to be our only option. Take a hike or go fishing, as "there are still rocks to be skipped."
7. Doritos 3D Commercial With Matthew McConaughey
What would the Super Bowl be without an epic commercial for Doritos? This year they skipped the dancing cowboys and scantily clad women, and instead gave us Matthew McConaughey. Unfortunately, it's a flat McConaughey who can't keep his feet on the ground.
Of course, the only cure for the actor's ailment is a bite of the new Doritos 3D which he takes a bite of after slithering inside a vending machine. It looks like he'll have a much more difficult time getting out!
8. General Motors Challenges Norway Commercial
Will Ferrell looks like he walked on set right out of quarantine unshaven, and in desperate need of a haircut. He decides it's his duty to take on Norway, which sells more electric cars than the United States. Ferrell recruits SNL actor Kenan Thompson and comedian Awkwafina in his efforts, telling them both to meet him in Norway.
In true American fashion, no one knows exactly where Norway is, and all end up in different countries. It looks like General Motors is stepping up their game and challenging Norway to a battle of the most sold electric vehicles.
9. Bud Light Legends Commercial
When a Bud Light delivery truck tips over, spilling all of its contents, the Bud Light Legends come to the rescue! These legends are all familiar because they're made up of all of those who've stared in Bud Light commercials in the past. There are some famous faces like Cedric the Entertainer and Post Malone, and then there are others.
If you're familiar with Bud Light's commercials in the past then you will recognize the "I Love You, Man" guy, the Bud Knight, Oracle Susana, the Real Men of Genius singer, and many more. Together, they're able to flip the truck back over and save the day.
10. Uber Eats Wayne's World Commercial
Mike Myers and Dana Carvey reprise their roles as Wayne and Garth in this hilarious Uber Eats commercial. As a mock episode of Wayne's World, they mock the "shameless manipulation" used in other commercials while using it themselves to encourage people to eat locally.
They use subliminal messaging, sex appeal, and even adorable little babies to get their message across. Cardi B also makes a guest appearance to pitch their slogan and participate in what may or may not be a Tik Tok trend. Hands down one of the greatest commercials of all time!
11. Tide Jason Alexander Hoodie Commercial
The concept may sound silly, but for some reason seeing Jason Alexander's face on a hoodie is much funnier than it sounds. Especially when we see his face being used as a napkin and to wash a car.
Of course, the actor makes an appearance at the end as himself. He yells at the kid wearing the hoodie, demanding he takes it off because no one is allowed to wear his face.
12. Cheetos It Wasn't Me Commercial
When celebrity couple Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis work together, hilarity ensues. Then when Shaggy is added to the mix, well then you get this commercial.
The three of them spoof Shaggy's hit song "It Wasn't Me" and use it to determine who's eating all of Ashton's Cheetos. Spoiler alert: it wasn't Mila!
13. Bud Light Lemonade Commercial
Another commercial to reference the disaster that was 2020 is this one for the new Bud Light lemonade. In this ulterior universe, people are literally being pounded by lemons as they scramble to find shelter.
As we all know, no one is safe from 2020's lemons!
14. Amazon's Michael B. Jordan Commercial
Amazon's new look for Alexa is nice, but wouldn't it be better if it was Michael B. Jordan? There isn't a device in the world that is sleeker, sexier, or more intelligent than the one and only Jordan.
This commercial hilariously shows what life would be like if Alexa was available in this body type. Many of us would have a hard time leaving the house, that's for sure!
