Geico: This Couple Has A Man Cave Close To Nature

He wanted a man cave in their new home, but she wanted to be closer to nature. So the couple in this Geico commercial compromised and built an actual cave into their house. And they have a cute grizzly bear visitor who’s quite interested in raiding their fridge. Brad Abrell plays the husband and Heather Simpson (who apparently got frustrated and left the ref) plays the wife.

Hotels.com: Wine At 11 AM Sounds Good!

If you’re scrolling though social media like Cindy, and you see a post from Nick Viall in Sonoma, it might make you want wine with lunch. Even if it’s only 11 AM, as Captain Obvious points out. So don’t hate-like their trip…book your own on Hotels.com. Cindy is played by Natalie Palamides, who you might also recognize as Mara from the Progressive commercials with Flo.

Google Helps This Elderly Man Remember His Late Wife Loretta

10 years ago, Google debuted its first TV ad during the Super Bowl. “Parisian Love” was a beautiful and sweet spot that was lauded as among the decade’s best commercials. Now, Google is back with another beautiful and sweet ad for the Super Bowl, and this one is definitely a tearjerker. We follow an old man who is trying not to forget his late wife, Loretta. Through the Google Assistant’s search and voice features, we see an emotional journey through a lifelong romance. The music is an instrumental version of A Great Big World’s equally tearjerking song “Say Something.” Aww. Here’s more about the ad.

Cheetos Popcorn And MC Hammer: Can’t Touch This

Anyone who’s eaten Cheetos knows about the neon orange dust that they leave on your fingers. So in this Super Bowl ad introducing Cheetos Popcorn, MC Hammer pops up and says “Can’t touch this” whenever a man’s Cheeto dust fingers mean he can’t help out with stuff. He “Can’t touch this” when his boss shows up with important papers at the office and when movers are struggling with a heavy couch. He can’t touch this when he’s spotting his lifting buddy, and when he’s asked to hold a crying baby (who turns out to be Hammer…creepy). And finally, a trust fall comes at a terrible time when he can’t touch this. Ouch.

Tuesday Throwback: Kobe Bryant Obeys His Thirst For Sprite

The world has been shocked and saddened by the sudden death of Kobe Bryant. As you surely now know, Kobe, his 13-year-old daughter Gianna, and seven others were killed in a helicopter crash outside Los Angeles on Sunday. So for this Tuesday Throwback, I’m posting a few commercials with Kobe. There were certainly a lot to choose from, but some of his most memorable were for Sprite. So take in these bittersweet pieces of nostalgia. Mamba out! RIP Kobe.

The Hyundai Sonata Shows Off Its “Smaht Pahk” In This Boston-Themed Super Bowl Commercial

The Boston accent is one that is frequently referenced, imitated, and lampooned in pop culture. That’s the basis of this new Super Bowl spot for the Hyundai Sonata that was released earlier today. In it, Boston and Boston-area raised celebrities Chris Evans, Rachel Dratch, and John Krasinki chat with exaggerated Boston accents while John pahks his new Sonata. Sounds like he’s pahked it in a lot of places around Boston. Big Papi even gets in on the fun. This ad would feel more appropriate if the Patriots were in the Super Bowl once again, but thankfully for those of us outside of New England, they aren’t.

 

Eargo Asks “Did You Bring The Condoms?”

Eargo is an American hearing aid manufacturer. Hearing aids are an important product, but they typically don’t make for interesting or sexy products to advertise. So Eargo just made a memorable commercial that will help them stand out. A boyfriend is thanking his girlfriend’s mom for inviting them for a weekend. The girlfriend whispers to the guy “Did you bring the condoms?” He doesn’t hear her and she whispers “condoms” again. After a third time of him not hearing, the dad pipes in from the living room. “Condoms, Charlie. She wants to know if you brought any condoms.” Looks like his Eargo is working like a charm. Aaaawkward. Mom’s look is priceless. And yeah, he brought some. Haha. Dad also takes out his Eargo when the kids go to bed. Good idea, Dad. Here’s a bit more about the spot from Ad Age.
