As is his yearly tradition, Will Ferrell filmed a Super Bowl commercial for Old Milwaukee beer that aired only in select markets. This year’s extra-tasty-kissy spot rivals GoDaddy’s Bar Refaeli-smooching-a-nerd ad for sure — instead of zeroing in too heavily on a ’70s-esque, tank-topped Ferrell macking on a stranger on a bus, the camera graciously pans out to highlight some of America’s finest canned brew. Watch it below. READ FULL STORY »

My overwhelming thought following tonight’s rippling terrain of pricey Super Bowl commercials was that Doritos missed a great cross-promotional opportunity by not joining forces with Calvin Klein. There’s always next year. Below, zip through a bunch of 2013′s most memorable — best AND worst! — Super Bowl ads. READ FULL STORY »
Yeah. It’s Super Bowl Sunday, America. And the finest, splashiest, nacho-cheesiest string of advertising in all the land’s about to begin. You can follow along with the hottest action of the day (not football) in the video player below — it’ll update after each quarter with the latest ads. And here’s a great guide to the commercials we already know we’ll see. In the meantime, let’s all chat in the comments here about which ones we love and which we loathe.
According to our scientific poll*, at the time of publishing, 41 percent of you are watching the Super Bowl for the commercials. (The other 60 percent is split between the football and Beyonce’s halftime show, with a slight edge to the actual game.) So here is a list of the commercials we know you will see while you’re watching the 49ers and the Ravens throw the pigskin around. READ FULL STORY »
If you’re a lover of Budweiser’s majestic Clydesdale commercials, we suggest you prepare yourself for a cuteness explosion.
For their Super Bowl ad this year, Anheuser-Busch is featuring a seven-day-old Clydesdale foal from Warm Spring Ranch in mid-Missouri. The 60-second commercial will shine a light on the foal’s bond with its trainer.
He’s played Jesus – now he’s playing the Devil. A 2013 Super Bowl ad is giving Willem Dafoe the chance to play Satan, in a promo for Mercedes-Benz.
In the commercial’s Faustian tale (backed by – what else? – the Rolling Stones’ “Sympathy for the Devil”), Dafoe’s Devil tempts an impressionable young man to make a deal in exchange for Mercedes’ new CLA-Class – and all that comes with it (because everyone knows that owning a sleek car = scoring invites to red carpet events, getting your photo on the front of magazines and being chased by hoards of screaming girls).
Usher and model Kate Upton also appear in the ad. Check it out below: READ FULL STORY »
Ah, GoDaddy, don’t ever change. (Or change completely. That’d work too.) The lowest common denominator-minded web hosting company is at it again this year with another Super Bowl commercial featuring hot hotties being hot. The new girl of the moment is Israeli supermodel Bar Refaeli, hottest woman in the world (according to Maxim) and ex-girlfriend of Leonardo DiCaprio.
In the ad, Refaeli trades down — way down — by locking lips with a bushy-haired, rosacea-stricken geekburger named Walter. See, the two of them represent the two sides of GoDaddy.com: “There’s the sexy side…and the smart side that creates a killer website for your small business.” Because boys are smart and girls are sexy! Did Malibu Stacy write this script?
Actually, that headline is sort of misleading. Though the following video is a teaser for ads that’ll play during a certain Big Game, Rogen and Rudd discover in it that they can’t actually use any copyrighted terms — meaning that “Super Bowl” itself, as well as the names of the teams playing, are out. Luckily, Breaking Bad‘s Bob Odenkirk is there to guide them over this hurdle. (That’s why you always call Saul). Check out the “next big thing” below:
Do you realize that Hyundai’s buzziest Super Bowl ad — which features a brand-new song by The Flaming Lips, written specifically for the commercial — is already online?
The 102-second spot features the psychadelic rockers playing their new tune, “Sun Blows Up Today,” as well as a family experiencing what might be the best day ever — complete with an enormous stack of pancakes, extreme skateboarding, shenanigans at a natural history museum, a scary group of bikers, a giant hamster ball/bubble (naturally), and a pair of fighting robots, though Yoshimi seems to be nowhere in sight. They also ride around in a Hyundai a lot because, well, you know. Here’s “Epic Playdate”: READ FULL STORY »
