Top 7 Super Bowl 2021 Ads – Podcast Ep. 44

Top 7 Super Bowl 2021 Ads – Podcast Ep. 44

Here’s our best of the super bowl 2021 ads rated from worst to best on a scale of 1-10. We were not generous with our rating, but that’s Jason’s fault.

We narrowed it down to seven, listen to the whole podcast to catch the honorable mentions and a few surprises Mitch and Jon brought.

At the 11:38 mark it’s Jon’s eh and the rebrand. Listen in on Mitch’s thoughts on the new logo.

Amazon Alexa with Micheal B Jordan – NerdRated: 3 out of 10.

We’ve come a long way haven’t we? A sexy and funny commercial, that made me laugh out loud. But created around the idea that Alexa’s voice is that of Michael B Jordan’s.

Miller Light – NerdRated: 2

Honestly I could not tell it was them, and what the point was. The reason is in their attempt for funny, it only probably was funny to a small segment. Or at best this looked like an internal joke an Agency would have in their office. Not that we would… moving on.

Tide with Jason Alexander – NerdRated: 6

A hoodie with his face. This I thought was creative and well thought out.

Hellmans Mayo – NerdRated: 2

Why? No really, why?

Frito Lay – NerdRated: 2

It’s not Christmas. Out of all the poems that one was picked?

John Cena! For Mountain Dew Watermelon – NerdRated: 2

While we love John Cena, and think his career has been, well, interesting. We can’t get into this one.

Will Ferrals and GM Ev’s – NerdRated: 2

Yes we saw the legislation about taking our nation’s cars into the future of Electric. But, why pick on Norway?

However, we give props for the “EV” in Everyone’s in Slogan. Though it does look like something thrown in later. So for that, it’s still a 2 for us.

Honorable mentions: 

  1. M&M’s
  2. Pringles
  3. Toyota (made me tear up)
  4. Door Dash and Sesame street.
  5. Falcon and Winter Soldier
