5. Hyundai “Smart Pahk”

Hyundai’s “Smart Pahk” commercial come in at #5. With actors Rachel Dratch, Chris Evans, John Krasinski and former Boston Red Sox legend David Ortiz. They focus on their new Remote Smart Parking Assist feature (RSPA), which allows drivers to park their car in and out of parking spots without being in the car. With thick Boston accents, Dratch and Evans sit and watch someone attempt to park in a tight parking spot. As the first driver couldn’t fit here comes Krasinski in the 2020 Hyundai Sonata. Dratch and Evans yell in their Boston accents that he wouldn’t fit, Krasinski gets out of his car and walks over to them explaining that it has the new (RSPA). Then Ortiz pops his head out of an apartment and approves of the car. This commercial brings out a laugh out of everyone watching with their funny Boston accents. With some big time actors, a lot of people ended up falling in love with this commercial (I know I did).

4. Jeep “Groundhog Day”

Jeep’s “Groundhog Day” commercial comes in at #4. As Jeep creates a reenactment of the movie Groundhog Day in 1993, but this time actor Bill drives a 2020 Jeep Gladiator. Super Bowl sunday ended up being on Groundhog Day this year which pushed Jeep to recreate the movie in their own way. Murry wakes up at six like in the movie and goes on adventures with the groundhog, from going on bike rides, watching fireworks, to even playing a game of whack-a-mole. As Murry is playing whack-a-mole, he turns to the groundhog and says, “It’s not personal, it’s just a game.” This commercial brought back memories of the movie and the nostalgia that came with it. Many people thought this was the top commercial of the Super Bowl. Jeep scored a touchdown on this one with keeping the convenience of Groundhog Day into the Super Bowl.

3. Hulu “Tom Brady’s Big Announcement”

Hulu’s “Tom Brady’s Big Announcement” commercial comes in at #3. Hulu has been bringing in multiple athletes to do commercials, but this commercial was different. They brought in Tom Brady, who has been a top player in the NFL for over a decade. This year was the first year since 2016 that Brady wasn’t a player in the Super Bowl. Brady enters this year’s Super Bowl as an actor for Hulu. The commercial starts off by Brady walking onto a football field as if he is announcing his retirement, but actually he is announcing his retirement from cable. He then goes on to explain what Hulu has to offer. However, the big reason why everyone is talking about this commercial is the ending to it. Tom Brady tells us that he is not going anywhere for football and that he will be back for another season, but the big question is where? Brady enters this next season as a free agent and all signs are pointing towards him leaving the Patriots. This commercial just further raised speculation about where Brady may be playing this upcoming season.

2. Planters “Tribute”

Planters “Tribute” commercial comes in at #2. With the death of long time mascot Mr. Peanut, their commercial starts off with a burial ceremony for Mr. Peanut on a cloudy day. With actors Wesley Snipes, Matt Walsh, and mascots Mr. Clean, Kool-Aid-Man attending. Snipes was reading an eulogy for Mr. Peanut, and during his reading the Kool-Aid-Man started to tear up. As his tear rushed down his pitcher, it ended up hitting Mr. Peanuts grave. After the tear hits the ground, a beam of sunlight hits the grave and up comes a plant with a baby in the middle. As everyone is in confusion, Walsh picks up the Baby Nut and the nut starts talking in dolphin. Then the baby says that he (Mr. Peanut) is back. This commercial brings a competition to who is the best baby, Baby Yoda or Baby Nut. Planters then tweeted, “Everyone deserves a clean start. Welcome, #BabyNut!”

1. NFL’s 100

NFL’s “The 100 Year Game” comes in at #1. With this past year being the NFL’s 100th season, they brought the heat with this commercial. Even though this commercial was aired to start the Super Bowl, this was the best one. They started off the commercial with a group of kids playing backyard football. The young kid, Bunchie, receives a kick off and he runs around the nation. As he is running he passes NFL legends and current stars in Jim Brown, Aaron Donald, Joey Bosa, Jalen Ramsey, Derwin James, Steve Young, Joe Montana, Jimmy Garoppolo, Christian McCaffrey, Drew Brees, Alvin Kamara, Saquon Barkley, Justin Tuck, Ray Lewis, Mark Ingram II, Brett Favre, Anthony Munoz, Barry Sanders, Ed Reed, Jerry Rice and Peyton Manning. As Bunchie, a young rising football star, is running he makes a stop at a Pat Tillman statue for a tribute for all veterinarians. He runs all the way to Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, where the Super Bowl was being held, and goes up to Virginia McCaskey, the Chicago Bears’ owner, and receives the game ball for the game. He runs out onto the field with 32 other kids wearing all the teams jerseys. This commercial is great if you are a sports fan, it shows past legends and to have 33 young kids running out to represent the next 100 years is amazing. Watching this commercial will bring you guaranteed happiness if you are a football fan.
