This year’s Super Bowl was a little different. No big parties, limited spectators, and not to mention Tom Brady in a Buccaneers uniform. Nonetheless, it's still the Super Bowl and more than 148 million of us tuned in.
Given my occupation, I enjoy watching the commercials as much as I love watching the game, so I wanted to share a few of my favorites in case you missed them. But then I thought… Let’s ask a real expert--someone who is the actual target demo for the 'lifetime customer' coveted by every brand. And so, meet my 9 year-old son, Brayden.
Here are his top picks and why:
Rocket Mortgage - This was super funny because all the bad things made them the right thing. Hilarious!
Mountain Dew - How can you not like this ad? You have the chance to win a MILLION Dollars!
T-Mobile - I laughed so hard because Travis Kelce kept knocking everyone down. 'Course, I love any ad about football!
Doritos 3D - He was super skinny, so he fit in a vending machine, grabbed some 3D Doritos, ate them and then became big again and got stuck in the vending machine. I'd love to get stuck in a vending machine!
Pizza Hut - Mom says Pizza Hut did a great job using their tagline in this ad with "No One Out Pizzas The Hut.” I just liked the spot.
Indeed - This ad reminded me of how there are people out there that need help, and I want to be someone that can help when I get older.
In case you want to watch a few more, here are favorites from the rest of the Loma Team:
State Farm – For our staff Packers fans, it was nice to see Aaron Rodgers although it would have been better to see him on the field. This commercial was star-studded featuring Paul Rudd, Patrick Mahomes and Drake alongside Rodgers.
Cheetos – You can’t go wrong with a commercial that includes Shaggy and the ending, is great.
Alexa – This one is for the ladies thanks to Michael B. Jordan.
Oatley – It’s great when a CEO can poke fun at himself and Oatley’s did just that with a hilarious, off key song. Wow. Wow. No Cow.
GM – Featuring Will Ferrell, Kenan Thompson and Awkwafina with Ferrell starring as someone who hates Norway because it sells more electric vehicles per capita than the US.
M&Ms – This commercial starring Dan Levy, shows how you can use candy to apologize whether that be for kicking someone’s airplane seat, mansplaining, calling someone a “Karen” and even holding an explosive gender reveal party.
