Let’s be honest. Super Bowl 50 was a total snoozer. Peyton didn’t do anything, Cam was terrible and the defensive heavy game was just plain boring. And don’t get us started on how Chris Martin and his pals stunk up the halftime show (all we wanted was Bey and Bruno, dammit!) The one saving grace of the evening was the ads.
This year’s pack of expensive Super Bowl commercials once again featured a variety of celebs ironically pushing products and services for rich American companies. And the best of the bunch had us in stitches.
Here’s a look at the 10 best, most hilarious Super Bowl ads from last night that totally overshadowed the pigskin.
10. Ryanville for Hyundai
If you’re going to live in a neighborhood completely inhabited by multiple Ryan Reynolds, you’re definitely going to need a car that saves you from distractions on the road. Good on ya, Hyundai!
9. Angry Willem Dafoe for Snickers
Willem Dafoe as a cranky Marilyn Monroe, some cool Marilyn CGI and a Eugene Levy cameo. Need we say more?
8. Helen Mirren for Budweiser
“Notoriously frank and insensitive British lady” Helen Mirren’s anti-drunk driving commercial was both hilarious and smart. It perfectly drove home the point, while giving us some solid chuckles. Remember, don’t be a “short-sighted, utterly useless, oxygen-wasting, human form of pollution.”
7. Over-protective Kevin Hart for Hyundai
Yep, Hyundai was totally on-point with their ads last night. Their second hilarious offering featured Kevin Hart using “car finder” technology to make sure his daughter’s date doesn’t attempt any funny business. It’s too good.
6. Insulting TJ Miller for Shock Top
That mean little shades-wearing Shock Top tap really let Silicon Valley star TJ Miller have it. He kinda does look like an out of work magician!
5. Self-deprecating Drake for T-Mobile
What can we say, we still love this ad. Grandpa Drizzy poking fun at his soft, affable ways is too hilarious. Well done, T-Mobile.
4. Steve Harvey did it again for T-Mobile
Folks, Steve Harvey had to apologize again. Poor Steve. We knew he was going to end up in an ad after the whole Miss Universe disaster. This time Verizon was humiliated by the comedian instead of Miss Columbia.
3. The Christopher Walken Closet for Kia
Christopher Walken and his sock puppet are right. Nobody wants to be the beige sock. Nobody.
2. Jeff Goldblum does The Jeffersons for Apartments.com
Yep, that’s Jeff Goldbum covering The Jeffersons theme song on a piano while being lifted high above New York City. George Washington and Lil Wayne make the perfect George and Louise, don’t you think?
1. Seth and Amy for Bud Light
We’ll let it slide that Seth Rogen is pretending to be American in this Bud Light commercial with Amy Schumer, because it’s the best. It was definitely the stand out from last night.
Bonus: PuppyMonkeyBaby for Mountain Dew
This has to be mentioned. Mountain Dew created their own celebrity last night. The PuppyMonkeyBaby. Can you think of anything more awesome than those three things combined? Hm. It was completely bizarre and totally hilarious. We just can’t figure out if its cute or not.
