The competition for the best Super Bowl ad is always fierce, and Sunday’s Super Bowl 53 didn’t disappoint. While the game was the lowest scoring Super Bowl ever played, the adverts were just about enough to keep us awake. Here’s our top five Super Bowl adverts of 2019…
5. The Pure Experience – Michelob ULTRA Pure Gold
If you haven’t experienced ASMR before, this advert is bound to get you on the hype. Encouraging its audience to get back on board with nature, Michelob ULTRA teamed up with Zoë Kravitzto create this thoroughly satisfying ad for their newest organic beer.
Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response (ASMR) is ‘a feeling of well-being combined with a tingling sensation in the scalp and down the back of the neck, as experienced by some people in response to a specific gentle stimulus, often a particular sound.’
4. More than OK – Pepsi
We’ve all been asked it. The infamous question. “Is Pepsi OK?”
Pepsi’s Super Bowl ad this year touched on an age-old conundrum that we face in pubs and bars all over the world. When you ask for a coke, a lot of places will ask you if Pepsi is alright, to which the majority of us would simply say “yes.” Steve Carell, on the other hand, seemed to have a stronger opinion on the matter. Totally relatable and with some high-profile cameos from Lil John and Cardi B, Pepsi clearly went all-out with their ad this year.
3. We All Win – Microsoft
Everyone loves a bit of a tear jerker, and this Super Bowl advert by Microsoft is just that. The inspirational stories from young gamers who struggled to get involved with their friends due to disability really pulled at our heart strings, and we couldn’t be more pleased that Microsoft have come up with the Xbox Adaptive Controller.
2. Top Dog – Avocados from Mexico
If there’s one way to win the hearts of the public, it’s with dogs. This canine competition was a little bit different, though, as it was the humans competing to bag themselves top prize: Avocados from Mexico. They must be good.
1. Michael Bublé vs Bubly – Bubly Water
Heartthrob Michael Bublé stole the show this year in his starring role in the Bubly Water ad. Is it pronounced Bubly or Bublé? Giving us something to really laugh at, this ad ticked all the right boxes and Mr Bublé is definitely deserving of our top spot.
