Another year, another Super Bowl of ads that left me feeling a bit disappointed yet again. Many of the staples of the big game commercials didn’t bother this year. Some of this is reflective of increased ad cost, drop in viewership and increase in internet releases ahead of the game. In fact, even the big movie trailers were almost all released days before online leaving nothing new for the Super Bowl ad space. So which ads made our best and worst list this year? We are excluding the pair of political ads from our list. Let’s dive in.
The Best Ads
The best ads list remained in our minds after they aired. Whether we were shocked by what we saw, laughed at antics on screen, these ads left an impression.
Home. Where comfortable means no shoes, no wig, and no … ? 🤔

The Worst Ads
The list of worst ads is full of missed opportunities, confusing messaging or simply left you going “what?”

Made Us Cry Award – Google
Google went for our soft spot during the game. Advertising its Google ecosystem, Google wanted you to feel the love a man had for his wife and how Google can help him remember.

Stamina Award – Tide
The real MVP of the night for ads was Tide. They stayed in front of mind throughout the night jumping in and out of other ads, game talk and even the Masked Singer show after the game.
