Mint Mobile Says Chunky Style Milk Is Not Right

Mint Mobile is making the big leap into the Super Bowl this year. Their spot is a continuation of the “That’s Not Right” campaign introduced last year, so it’s not really a surprise, but it’s still a chuckler. If you’ve ever left milk in the fridge for a few weeks too long, it might end up looking something like it does right here. And that’s not right. But wireless for $20/month is right, says Mint Mobile. I’m sure people will be grossed out by the chunky style milk, but I laughed at the faux-commercial setup. Kimberly Spak plays the enthusiastic mom.

Olay Brings Us Sarah Michelle Gellar In Their Horror Spoof Super Bowl Spot

One of the most anticipated and most teased ads this Super Bowl season has been Olay’s commercial with Sarah Michelle Gellar. Now the official version is finally here. Poor Sarah can’t unlock her phone with Face ID because she’s been using Olay. SMG has some killer skin. It’s an entertaining Super Bowl debut for both Olay and Sarah Michelle Gellar.

 

Febreze And Terrell Owens Want To Get Your Bathroom Super Bowl Ready

Because eating greasy food and drinking beer does not exactly portend pleasant smells for your poor bathroom. Luckily, Febreze is here to help. You’d better stock up on Febreze before it’s too late. T.O. is amusingly overdramatic here.

Devour Goes All In On Frozen Food Porn For The Super Bowl

Pretty much all of the big Super Bowl ads are released early online, and it’s been like that for years now. I generally try to avoid watching or even reading too much about them, because I still like to be surprised. But it doesn’t always work for me. Anyway, here’s one from frozen foods line Devour, which has positioned itself as sort of a “Hungry-Man for the modern man.” Devour has also become well-known for its raunchy advertising and this one fits right in. So much so that this uncensored version won’t be aired during the Super Bowl, and a tamer version will be in its place. What’s so naughty about this one? Well, it’s the story of a couple where the boyfriend is addicted to “frozen food porn.” We’re treated to some hot frozen food action, complete with a hidden stash and some suggestive forking. But it’s alright I guess, because now they’re watching amateur food videos together. It’s about as subtle as a sledgehammer, and it’s meant to be that way. I’d imagine even the tame version will ruffle certain people’s feathers, so I bet the world would really burn if they tried to put this dirty version on during the Super Bowl. Anyone know who play the couple in this Devour ad?

Budweiser’s Super Bowl Commercial Stars Water And A Great “Stand By Me” Cover

Almost all Super Bowl commercials are now released online long before the big game. I don’t like this, as I feel it takes some of the magic away from the new ads, so this year I’ve made an effort not to watch online. But I saw Budweiser’s during a Hulu ad break, and since it’s picked up almost 10 million views since being released a week ago, I guess I can write about it. Anyway, this time Budweiser is going away from its tried-and-true tradition of the Clydesdales for its big ad. But the one they’ve created is still quite nice. This past year has been full of natural disaster, and all of the areas hit have been in desperate need of one of beer’s key ingredients…water. So the spot focuses on Budweiser’s brewery in Cartersville, Georgia supplying water to the disaster spots. The background song is a beautiful cover of Ben E. King’s “Stand By Me” (one of my all-time favorites), performed by Skylar Grey.

Budweiser Tells The Immigrant Story Of Adolphus Busch In Its Super Bowl Commercial

Advertising often reflects the events of the outside world. So at a time when immigration is a red-hot topic, especially in the United States, it’s not surprising that Budweiser would create an ad about the immigrant story of the co-founder of Anheuser-Busch, Adolphus Busch. It’s a compelling, well-shot commercial that’s racked up more than 6 million views only a few days after being released online. Here’s more from Adweek.

Mr. Clean Gets Sexy In Its New Super Bowl Ad

Do you believe that advertising can make people change their behavior? If so, I wonder whether we’ll see an upswing in men doing house cleaning. Of course, the whole notion that they don’t is a pretty tired stereotype. Regardless, this Mr. Clean commercial created by Leo Burnett Toronto seems like one people will be talking about during the Super Bowl. I’ll update with actor/actress info when I find it.
