Super Bowl commercials have always played a pivotal role in the big game, entertaining us with witty, clever advertisements during breaks from the football game itself. The commercials don’t always steal the show, but they certainly enhance watching the game. In many ways, you come for the Super Bowl but stay for the commercials (and the 7 layer dip). They turn a football game into a four-hour experience that is so large, it only happens once a year (not counting the Westminister Kinnel Club Dog Show, of course).
Here’s a look at our Top 6 Super Bowl Commercials of All time, and the role they’ve played in not just keeping us entertained during game breaks, but leaving a lasting impact on our culture.
6) 1984: The First Official Declaration by Apple/Macintosh that they are going to take over the World.
This commercial has a little bit of everything. The obligatory Big Brother reference, the hostile sound of technological take-over, Steve Jobs, it’s a commercial that should creep you out, and it’s shocking to see the radical marketing transition Apple has since undergone. Sure they’re still taking over the world one handheld device at a time, but they’re doing it now in a way that’s pretty, white, and hipper-than-hip…not in your face, autocratic, and down-right bone chilling.
5) Dave and Oprah Share The Spotlight
This arguably could have been the most expensive commercial of all-time, if it weren’t for this commercial, which added one more log to the fire (the fire of love that is…) Who doesn’t like to see two larger than life figures interacting with one another? Even if it gets a little old after a while, and Dave’s acting is a little much, it’s still fun to see that monumental celebrities can have a little fun with each other, all while the executives fit the over 3 million dollar bill (and that’s just to air it).
4) Cindy Crawford 1992 Pepsi Advertisement
If you were born after 1990, chances are, you unfortunately have no idea who Cindy Crawford is. Let’s put it this way, she was one of the last Super-Models that truly was a model (valedictorian of her high school class) not just some celebrity that ended up on a magazine cover or advertisement because they were rich and/or had their own reality TV show. This 1992 Super Bowl commercial shows you everything you need to know about her…oh, and there’s a joke about Pepsi in there as well.
3) Google Announces They’ll Take Over Your Life From Here On Out..
This commercial speaks in a number of ways. Well, technically, it doesn’t say anything, but that’s precisely the point. This google commercial, which aired in last years 2010 Super Bowl, shows the power of using google to your advantage, and how much of a staple technology and the internet are in assisting us with our lives. Not that this is anything most of us didn’t already know, but still, it’s fascinating how this commercial points it out…albeit if it isn’t a little scary HOW much google has taken over…
2) Budweiser Clydesdale Horses Kick the Extra Point
Arguably the funniest Super Bowl commercial of all time, this commercial says everything you need to know. Yea, that was easy enough.
1) The Force is With Darth Vader
The best Super Bowl commercial ever, technically isn’t a Super bowl Commercial until a couple of hours now. This commercial shows us that the most important thing will always be imagination, be it with our favorite characters or automobile that gets us from a to b.
What’s your list of the top Super bowl commercials of all time?
