Today was Super Bowl LV (that’s 55 in Roman numerals), not to be confused with Sad Super Bowl, which was Phoebe Bridgers and Dan Levy on Saturday Night Live on the weekend.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers won the big American football game against the Kansas City Chiefs, 31-9, and The Weeknd inspired memes with his halftime performance.
But in between it all was the $5.5 million advertising opportunity of the year, featuring celebrities spruiking everything from Doritos to Cadillacs to Uber Eats.
Here’s some of our fave celeb Super Bowl ads for 2021:
Doritos Super Bowl LV Ad
Matthew McConaughey is feeling a little flat, literally, until he tries Doritos 3D.
Top gag: Matthew on Jimmy Kimmel Live! being asked, “Did you drive here or did you travel by fax?”
Cadillac Super Bowl LV Ad
Timothée Chalamet stars as Edgar Scissorhands, Edward’s son with Kim Boggs (Winona Ryder), who is able to safely drive an All-Electric Cadillac.
Top gag: Edgar at college, attracting magnets in physics and popping American footballs during a game of catch.
General Motors Super Bowl LV Ad
Will Ferrell in an ad for General Motors loses his shit about Norway selling more electric cars than the US.
Top gag: Will punches through a globe and can’t get unstuck, so he takes it with him to visit Kenan Thompson and an arrow-slinging Awkwafina, and then all the way to Norway. (He actually ends up in Sweden.)
M&M’s Super Bowl LV Ad
People apologise to each other with the power of M&M’s, including Dan Levy, who says sorry to the Green and Brown M&Ms for eating all their friends.
Top gag: Dan Levy literally locking the Red M&M in his car (we love Dan Levy).
Uber Eats Super Bowl LV Ad
Mike Myers and Dana Carvey return to their Wayne’s World roots as community TV hosts Wayne and Garth, blatantly encouraging people to “Eat local.”
Top gag: “We would never shamelessly rely on a celebrity cameo,” Wayne says, before Cardi B appears to further stress their message and perform a TikTok challenge.
Cheetos Super Bowl LV Ad
With encouragement from Shaggy himself, Mila Kunis repeatedly denies eating Ashton Kutcher‘s Cheetos.
Top gag: Ashton ultimately believes Mila even though the Cheetos are all over her face. Shaggy quips: “Well, that’s the first time that’s ever worked.”
Tide Super Bowl LV Ad
A teenage boy wears a hoodie of Jason Alexander‘s face, whose expression grows more and more horrified as it gets dirtier and dirtier. It’s an ad for Tide washing detergent.
Top gag: The real Jason sees the teen wearing the hoodie and honks at him. “Hey, that’s my face. You can’t just wear my face,” he complains, in the tradition of George Costanza.
Hellman’s Super Bowl LV Ad
Amy Schumer as a Fairy Godmayo helps a man turn his leftovers into a feast with Hellman’s mayo and also magic.
Top gag: The man asks, “What else can you do?” and she replies, “Absolutely nothing.”
Oh celebrities, is there anything they can’t advertise? I’m literally going to buy a pack of M&Ms now. Thanks Dan Levy.
