The best Super Bowl 55 commercials released ahead of gameday

We keep track of the Super Bowl 55 commercials released ahead of gameday.

Why Jerome Bettis thinks the Chiefs have the edge in the Big Game

Watching Super Bowl commercials have become almost as big a tradition as watching the game itself. Though there are some brands who opted out of a commercial spot for Super Bowl 55, there are still plenty of brands who ponied up the cash for some of the most entertaining ads of the year. CBS is hosting the big game this season, and they’ve set the price at $5.5 million for 30-seconds of advertising space during one of the most widely viewed sporting events of the year.

Here, we’ll post the commercials released ahead of the 2021 Super Bowl, just in case you can’t wait or are bound to miss them for a trip to the snack table in between quarters. We’ll add more commercials as we find video.

Cheetos — Kick off Super Bowl 55 with a journey back to 2000

Ashton Kutcher reminds us why he’s an actor rather than a singer in this commercial, as he launches an investigation into who ate his Cheetos with the help of reggae artist Shaggy. #ItWasn’tMila

Cheetos — It turns out, Shaggy was in on it the whole time.

Frito Lay — A trip to the past isn’t complete without some former Super Bowl legends... and more snacks, of course.

Frito Lay went all out for this star-studded commercial lineup, as former RB Marshawn Lynch tells us the legendary bedtime story — ‘Twas the Night Before The Super Bowl. You’ll be privy to appearances from NFL legends like Joe Montana, Jerry Rice, and the Manning Brothers, just to name a few.

Amazon Alexa — Alexa looks a little different in this Super Bowl ad

Imagine if your ‘Alexa’ took on the form of your favorite celebrity crush. We get a glimpse of one woman’s fantasy of having 2020’s Sexiest Man Alive, Michael B. Jordan, as her virtual assistant. Spoiler alert: Her husband doesn’t enjoy this idea quite as much.

General Motors — Will Ferrell takes a stand on Norway

Will Ferrell gets wind that Norway is selling more electric vehicles than the US... and he won’t stand for it. He assembles a team, including Kenan Thompson and Awkwafina, to get their electric vehicles — “EV’s” — and head to Norway to give them “what for.” GM’s message is clear in this one; electric vehicles will pave the way of the future.

TurboTax — They aim to make us all experts by helping us find the weirdest deductions possible

The lesson seems to be here that if you haven’t found at least one weird tax credit that you qualify for, you aren’t looking hard enough... or using TurboTax.

Squarespace — Dolly Parton shows us anything is possible from 5 to 9

Dolly Parton sings an upbeat little number to bring us some inspiration on all the things we accomplish outside of the 9 to 5 grind with the help of Squarespace to build the ultimate website.

Uber Eats — This partnership with Wayne’s World is a match made in commercial heaven

We can all agree that Wayne and Garth would have ordered Uber Eats on the reg’... right? This advertising partnership just makes sense.

Sam Adams — Your cousin from Boston is back.

He’s wreaking havoc on the town, but let’s face it — he’ll probably blame it on the Sam Adams Wicked Hazy IPAs. At 6.8% ABV, this isn’t your dad’s old school Sam Adams.

Dexcom — Nick Jonas uses his platform to talk about the future of diabetes management

Nick Jonas was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at the age of 13. The management of diabetes has historically required several pricks of the finger per day to make sure the patient’s blood sugar is at a safe level. However, as Jonas points out, technology has come a long way — why not use it to our benefit? Dexcom makes continuous blood glucose monitoring possible with the help of your smart phone... and without all of the extra finger pokes.

Scotts Lawn — John Travolta gets “Super Bowl Night Fever”

Scotts Lawn gives us a look at what a myriad of celebrities are doing on their lawns to keep busy. John Travolta? He’s dancing with his daughter. #DoItForTheTikTok

M&M’s — The only way to say, “I’m sorry”

Let’s face it. 2020 was the worst, and we’re all a little grumpy. To make up for those moments where we slip, there’s always a bag of M&Ms to make up for it.

Fiverr — Teasing a “Four Seasons” promo

We’ve only got a few seconds to take a look at this one, but Fiverr takes us back to the Four Seasons (Total Landscaping) where the Trump campaign held a press conference back in November. It was a happy accident for the Four Seasons, and they admirably took the press and ran with it.

Skechers Max Sneakers — Tony Romo’s family takes it to the MAX

We knew as soon as Tony Romo stepped into the announcing booth that he took game analysis to the max, but the fun doesn’t stop there. Skechers gives us a glance into the Romo household, where they take everything to the max, including the comfort of their sneakers.

T-Mobile — Tom Brady and Gronk star in the Super Bowl ad you won’t see during the Super Bowl

This T-Mobile commercial wasn’t approved to air on Super Bowl Sunday, but it’s more than worth watching. Here, we get a look at how Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski really ended up in Tampa Bay.

Last, but not least...

Anheuser Busch reminds us to look at the “Bigger Picture”

The Budweiser family made headlines this year when they elected to forego a Super Bowl commercial for the first time in 37 years. Instead, they took a moment to look back at the “Bigger Picture” in life and pay homage to the challenges we’ve experienced through the 2020 and COVID-19 pandemic.

The Anheuser-Busch team elected to spread their funds across their corporate brand, so in addition to a heartwarming “bigger picture” ad, we get this nice reminder that plenty of life’s moments are shared with a beer.

Cheers, to a better 2021.
