Super Bowl XLIX is almost here, which means that the commercials (or teasers for the commercials) are being posted online.
The latest ad to appear online before the big game is from #Eat24, an online food delivery service. They got Snoop Dogg and Gilbert Gottfried as their pitchmen, which seems weird at first, but actually kind of works.
Below are many more ads that have been released prior to the Super Bowl — which raises the question of whether there are any left to truly debut during the actual game.
The ads include Snickers with the latest iteration of the “you’re not yourself when you’re hungry” ad campaign. In this one, the company uses old “Brady Bunch” footage and posits that when Marcia and Jan are hungry, they become Danny Trejo and Steve Buscemi. Sure, why not?
There is also Budweiser’s full “Lost Puppy” ad and former “Today” co-anchors Katie Couric and Bryan Gumbel recreating a rather
hilarious conversation they had in 1994 about the @ symbol for a BMW i3
commercial. It’s actually a pretty clever call back.
Charlotte McKinney is baring it all for Carl’s Jr. The “all natural” ad is boasting the new burger that has no antibiotics, hormones or steroids and features McKinney strolling naked through a farmer’s market, with her NSFW bits obscured by pieces of produce a la “Austin Powers.” According to USA Today, this ad will only air in the West, so the rest of the country will just have to watch online.
Nationwide teases its insurance ad starring “The Mindy Project” headliner Mindy Kaling; Bud Light previews its second year of the “Up For Whatever” ads, where some Average Joe goes on the wildest night of his life by accepting a Bud Light from a stranger; Skittles … teases something creepy that involves a sleepy little town full of people with gigantic right arms; Victoria’s Secret previews its commercial that features Angels playing football; and Kim Kardashian’s meta ad for T-Mobile.
Super Bowl XLIX kicks off Sunday, Feb. 1 at 6:30 p.m. ET/3:30 p.m. PT on NBC.
