A 30-second spot during last night’s Super Bowl cost a cool $5.6 MILLION . . . or about $186,000 per second.  So which ones were worth the money?

Here’s a quick rundown of the highlights . .

Planters had a lot of buzz going in after they killed off Mr. Peanut in an ad last month.  And it turned out it was just so they could get in on the whole “baby-versions-of things-are-cute” trend.

The Super Bowl ad had Wesley Snipes speaking at Mr. Peanut’s funeral.  Then the Kool-Aid Man cried . . . a teardrop landed on the grave . . . and a cute, BABY version of Mr. Peanut sprouted up and made DOLPHIN sounds.

 

Bill Murray starred in a Jeep ad that recreated a bunch of scenes from “Groundhog Day”.  The Jeep people posted it online before the game, but not a lot of people saw it.  So it got a pretty good reaction.

It's "Groundhog Day" all over again as Jeep brand debuts a Big Game spot starring Bill Murray (in his first-ever national television commercial). But this time reliving the same day over and over again is always a new adventure when you're driving the 2020 Jeep Gladiator. Jeep. There's only one.

Cheetos teamed up with MC Hammer to push their new Cheetos Popcorn.  The joke was that when you’ve got orange Cheetos dust on your fingers, you quote, “can’t touch this.”

Bryan Cranston and Tracee Ellis Ross did a parody of “The Shining” to promote the new Mountain Dew Zero Sugar.  The very end showed Bryan standing in a hallway dressed as the two creepy twin girls from the movie.

A great spot for Rocket Mortgage featured a SCRAWNY and BALD version of Jason Momoa.  It showed him stripping off his muscles like a fake body suit.  Then his real-life wife Lisa Bonet spotted him while he struggled to bench press a bar with no weights on it.  The theme of the ad was, “At home, I can truly be myself.”

Watch Jason Momoa get super comfortable at home in our 2020 Super Bowl commercial. Behind the muscles and hair is just a guy trying to relax at home - the one place he can truly be himself.

Ellen and Portia de Rossi did an ad for Amazon that showed how people got things accomplished before Alexa existed.  Apparently we all just ordered people named Alex and Alexis to do stuff for us.

An ad for Oikos Greek Yogurt featured various NFL players’ BACKSIDES while the song “Bubble Butt” played.  It definitely seemed to be targeting the wife demographic..

Sam Elliott and his very limber mustache had a dance-battle with Lil Nas X in an ad for Doritos.

Sofia Vergara was in an epic ad with a bunch of brand mascots, including the Old Spice guy, Mr. Clean, and comedian Rob Riggle as a superhero who crotch-thrusted rolls of Bounty paper towels at people.

When we all come together it's amazing what we can do. With the help of Troy Palomalu, Isaiah Mustafa, Busy Phillips, Manolo Vergara and Rob Riggle as Bounty Man, Sofia Vergara's Super Bowl party is saved from the great chili spill.

Speaking of epic ads, Tide did a series of commercials with Charlie Day, who flipped out after getting a stain on his shirt.  The cool part was that he and his stained shirt appeared in ads for OTHER products . . . Bud Light, Pepsi, the movie “Wonder Woman 1984”, and the show “The Masked Singer”.

The Snickers ad that parodies the “We Are the World”-style charity songs, where everyone gets together to sing . . . and feed the EARTH a Snickers.

An ad for Pringles featured characters from the animated show “Rick and Morty”.  If you’re a fan of the show, you probably loved it.  If you’ve never seen the show, you probably didn’t get the premise.

Post Malone was in a funny ad for the new Bud Light Seltzer where the voices in his head caused him to destroy the inside of a convenience store.

Finally . . . because we can’t go a Super Bowl without seeing Tom Brady . . . there was a Hulu ad that started out like it might be Brady announcing his RETIREMENT, but it was just a gimmick for Hulu.  At the end, Tom said, quote, “I’m not going anywhere.”

According to the script we gave Tom Brady to read, Hulu doesn't just have live sports. It has your favorite TV channels, plus the greatest shows, movies and originals of all time.

And Google had an ad where an old guy asked his Google Assistant to help him find photos, videos, and memories of his wife, who’d passed away.  Some people found it touching.  Others found it unsettling to see Google basically brag about how much of our personal information they’re hoarding.
