The Joy of Super Bowl Commercials

The new trailer for “Deadpool & Wolverine,” coming out in July, gave movie fans something to look forward to.

None of us tuned into this year’s Super Bowl for the same reasons. Some viewers watched solely to root for their favorite team, while others may have just tuned in to see Usher roller skate across the stage during his Halftime performance. For many other viewers (specifically me), the iconic Super Bowl commercials are what kept them entertained. This year’s Super Bowl in particular had no shortage of exciting commercials. Here are some of the most exciting ones:

Beyoncé Announces New Music

Only a year and a half after releasing her critically acclaimed album “Renaissance,” Queen Bey announced new music at the end of a commercial in collaboration with Verizon. Just minutes after the commercial aired, the 32-time Grammy winner released two new songs under the Country genre. The songs titled “16 Carriages” and “Texas Hold ‘Em” have topped the charts, going #1 and #2 respectively on the Apple Music US Charts.

Cinema is Back!

This year’s Super Bowl commercials were full of teaser trailers for upcoming films, namely: the highly anticipated “Deadpool 3” (now titled “Deadpool & Wolverine”) and “Wicked” starring award-winning artists Ariana Grande and Cynthia Erivo. Since the writer’s strike, film fanatics have not had the satisfaction of seeing these movie trailers on such a large scale. With Hugh Jackman reprising his role as Wolverine in “Deadpool 3,” many Marvel fans get one last taste of the beloved X-Men films.

Celebrities Everywhere!

There was a surplus of celebrity cameos in commercials this year. From Kris Jenner in an Oreo commercial to Judge Judy herself in an e.l.f cosmetics ad, I dreaded when the commercial breaks were over. It seemed like T-Mobile had no shortage of funds when it came to celebrity cameos, featuring Jennifer Lopez, Common, and Bradley Cooper. One of my personal favorites was the Starry Soda ad featuring the “Princess of Rap” Ice Spice.

No matter if the team you were rooting for won or not, I’m sure this year’s commercials entertained regardless.
