Best ads from Super Bowl LII

The best Super Bowl ads made us laugh, cry, and audibly wonder how much a trip to Australia would cost.

Here are some of the best ads from Super Bowl LII:

GOAT Ad: Doritos, Mountain Dew collaboration with Peter Dinklage and Morgan Freeman rapping Busta Rhymes and Missy Elliott

Peter Dinklage and Morgan Freeman in any Super Bowl commercial was going to be epic, but having them RAP (lip sync, obviously) Busta Rhymes and Missy Elliott?! That was what Super Bowl commercials are made for.

Leaving on a Jet Plane: Australia Tourism

It’s cold on the East Coast right now and Australia looks nice and warm, so this ad should move Australia to the next spot on your vacation list. The ad referenced a “remake” of ‘Crocodile Dundee’ with Chris Hemsworth and Danny McBride, the incredible Australian wine, and stunning beaches.

Laugh Out Loud: NFL’s Dirty Dancing tribute ad

Eli Manning and Odell Beckham Jr. had the time of their lives during Super Bowl LII, paying tribute to Dirty Dancing’s famous dance routine and acrobatic leap done by Jennifer Grey and Patrick Swayze.

You are, you’re a Superstar… commercial: Amazon

Amazon brought the star power to their Amazon Echo spot, with Gordon Ramsey, Cardi B, Leslie Jones, Rebel Wilson and Anthony Hopkins, filling in for a voiceless Amazon Alexa.

Get the tissues: Hyundai

Hyundai’s ad where car buyers meeting cancer patients that they helped by purchasing a car hit you right in the feels. It was obvious that every parent was on the edge of tears while watching the videos of patients saying thank you.

Super Bowl: Eagles, Foles best Patriots at their own game

Anything Tom Brady can do, Nick Foles can do better.

Clearly.

The Patriots’ trick play with Danny Amendola and Brady didn’t go as planned, but it sparked an epic moment for the Eagles.

While Brady dropped his third-down pass attempt, Foles not only made the catch thrown from tight end (and former college quarterback) Trey Burton, but he FOUND THE END ZONE.

What an incredible moment in this dynasty vs. destiny matchup.

Eagles beat Patriots in Super Bowl LII (viral moments)

2 Comments

Everyone will be talking about Super Bowl LII on Monday morning, here are the most noteworthy moments to keep you in the loop.

Things got off to a fairly familiar start for the New England Patriots.

Ten years after David Tyree’s infamous catch, Torrey Smith’s third-and-12 conversion had people calling for a Helmet Catch 2.0.

Oops!

This 26-yard field goal attempt is certainly one Stephen Gostkowski wishes he could take back, especially with the Eagles jumping out to an early lead.

Tom Brady going out for a pass? That’s not something you see every day and it clearly wasn’t something the greatest QB of all time was used to. Creative effort by the Patriots, but a wide receiver Brady is not.

Then again, maybe he didn’t want to risk his hand …

Game changer?

Patriots safety Duron Harmon made a HUGE interception off the deflection from Alshon Jeffery and it could be just what New England needs to close out the first half.

The interception was in fact what the Patriots needed, unless you’re Gostkowski. The New England kicker missed ANOTHER kick, should fans start to get nervous?

Will Bill Belichick make a crazy decision in the second half?

Only time will tell.

The Eagles had a message for the Patriots to end the first half: Anything Brady can do, Nick Foles can do better.

STRIP SACK!

Holding on to a five-point lead, the Eagles get to Tom Brady and strip the ball with just over two minutes remaining in the fourth quarter.

This could be the moment Philadelphia needed!

Turns out, IT WAS!

The Eagles defeat the Patriots – with Foles – to deny Brady his sixth championship in one of the better Super Bowls in recent memory.
