Super Bowl ad slots are highly regarded, with numerous companies from various industries ardently fighting for the chance to advertise. Amidst this large-scale competition, Michelob’s ad stood out. It masterfully combined humor and an unanticipated celebrity appearance, dominating the conversations throughout the evening. Although the competition was fierce, the advertising platforms, once again, proved to be a golden opportunity for brands to connect with a vast audience in a meaningful way.

Other memorable adverts included Reese’s ‘Yes!’ ad and Hellmann’s ‘Mayo Cat’. Toyota’s beautifully narrated story of Paralympic swimmer Jessica Long also earned praise. The Cheetos ‘It Wasn’t Me’ ad, the M&M’s ‘Come Together’ campaign, Budweiser’s ‘Bigger Picture’ commercial, and Airbnb’s ‘We Accept’ all left strong impressions with viewers.
