As eagerly awaited as Katy Perry’s halftime performance. As awesome as riding a giant mechanical tiger. As misguided as a slant route at the 1-yard line as time is expiring, it’s time for our staff picks of our favorite Super Bowl commercials of 2015.
First of all, I think that shout-out is in order for Ms. Perry (and I am sure she’s reading) for including Old Dominion’s Missy Elliott in the halftime show.
And now without any further delay of game, here’s the staff picks:
Kelsey gave her nod to Nationwide’s “Invisible Mindy Kaling” because the ad delivered laughs. Kelsey also said that she thought Mindy’s charm, Julia Robert’s narration and Matt Damon’s surprise cameo won her over.
Brandi found a lot to like. She said. “Budweiser made me cry; Snickers and Esurance made me laugh; Coke and Dodge made me think; Always gave me chills – I love that they turned last year’s viral video into a Super Bowl ad and it would be my winner if it was new to me; but my favorite was the BMW commercial with Katie and Bryant – just merely for the fact that it blew the minds of a lot of young people that there was a time when the Internet was new…like Missy Elliott.”
Maddy the intern liked the Loctite Glue Positive Feelings spot.
Finally, a big thanks to our own Gary Gilmore for getting up early to offer commentary on WSLS. Check it out here.
