Super Bowl commercials are almost as big a deal as the football itself (pour one out for the Rams fans in your life), and despite memes declaring this year’s game and halftime show to be the worst ever, at least the ads didn’t disappoint.
As ever, celebrities were the big draw, with Cardi B, Chance the Rapper, John Legend, Serena Williams, Adam Scott, Zoë Kravitz, 2 Chainz, and more all working with major brands for their TV spots. Elsewhere, brands such as Google, Verizon, and Microsoft got us in the feelings with heartwarming ads, while The Washington Post made an emotional appeal for support.
