Another year of big-time advertisements has come and gone, which means it’s time for Rippe Keane’s Postgame Ad-Nalysis. While some were expecting brands to get political, most focused on nostalgia, inclusivity and some even took a stab at humor. We’ve picked out the good, the bad and the questionable ads for you to watch below!
Who showed us they care?
Verizon – Answering the Call
Budweiser – Stand By You
Who focused on inclusivity?
T-Mobile – Little Ones
Coca Cola – There’s a Coke for Everyone
Who debuted a new catchphrase?
One notable brand that kept us guessing throughout the whole game: Tide. #It’sATideAd
These brands tried but didn’t win in our books.
Ram – Built to Serve
Pringles – WOW
Diet Coke – Mango Made Me Do It
Yellow Tail – Big Game Surprise
Ram Truck – Icelandic Vikings
Who introduced something new?
While making us feel nostalgic, Natty Light introduced a giveaway for college grads to relieve their debt.
Who made us smile?
The lip sync battle between Peter Dinklage and Morgan Freeman had all of us laughing and singing along.
Who took a big risk?
“…The iceberg that sank the Titanic was frozen too.” Wendy’s didn’t hold back on directly calling out their competitors this year. What do you think McDonald’s has to say about this?
Which ad surprised us the most?
Have you recently googled “Dundee Movie?” Try it after watching this ad and see what happens.
Who made us feel warm and fuzzy?
Car brands like Toyota and Kia had us reaching for the Kleenex.
