Super Bowl 2020: Here are some of the best ads

The Super Bowl ads are the most-awaited ones of the year.

Football fans or to be more precise, American Football fans, like every year gathered around to watch the Super Bowl. The event can be touted as the ultimate sporting event across the country and often breaks most of the records of its sporting contemporaries.

While this year’s game was between San Fancisco49ers vs Kansas City Chiefs, not everyone might have watched the grand affair for the athlete inclination. Given the magnitude of the event, the choicest of brands pair with Hollywood stalwarts to push new ads throughout the show’s premiere and thus the commercials become somewhat of standalone attractions.

However, the slots for these ads do not come cheap. While during the first edition of the sporting extravaganza in 1967, an ad slot was reportedly sold for around $37,500 to $42,500, the prices have shot up into multi-millions now.

As per a report by Bloomberg, by November FOX had already sold out 30 seconds slots for around $5.6 million. Super Bowl XLIX (2015) which saw the Patriots go up against Seahawks, recorded a whopping 144.44 million views, pumping it to the title of the highest watched Super Bowl in history.

Super Bowl doesn’t only give a platform to ads, but also, trailers for movies, TV shows, games and much more. As the operations of this year’s Super Bowl wrap up with the Kansas City Chief taking home the title, we take a look at some of the best commercials of this season!

> Hyundai

Starring Chris Evans, Rachel Dratch, John Krasinski, the focus of the ad is Hyundai Sonata’s “Smaht Pahk”, where the car parks itself and even un-parks! As the former two for the aforementioned trio look in amazement, Krasinski shows off the functionalities as well! Oh, even David Ortiz makes a cameo!

> Microsoft

The spot of Microsoft is a rather inspiring one. The ad puts the spotlight on, Katie Sowers, who is the first woman to coach in the Super Bowl. The one minute video shares the journey of Sowers and showcases her determination to become what she is today.

> Amazon

Graced by Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi, Amazon’s ad takes us to numerous scenarios in a world without its recent offering, Alexa! Fantastically comic and well-imagined scenarios perfectly sync with the ending bringing it all together in an ad which might want to make you get Alexa!

> Pringles

Love Rick and Morty and Pringles? The Super Bowl ad of Pringles transports the duo into an alternate world where they realise that they are trapped in a Pringles advertisement. Choose your flavours wisely!

>  Budweiser

Budweiser’s take on this year’s Super Bowl revolves around shattering stereotypes. The brand has picked up the phrase ”Typical American” and gives a sharp twist to what the phrase means by featuring amazing events with the stereotypical phrases.

> Google

Google’s ad focuses on its Google Assistant application. Using the help of the app, a man remembers his late lady love, Loretta. Weaved beautifully with minimalistic approach, the ad definitely tugs the heartstrings!

While these are just some of many that we loved, the others definitely deserve the credit of being amazing too!
