2015 Super Bowl Commercials - From Lighthearted to Heartfelt

This year, it seemed like Super Bowl advertisers came to the game wearing their heart on their sleeves.  Sure, there were lighthearted and silly ads like Dorito’s “When Pigs Fly”, an Esurance commercial featuring Breaking Bad’s Walter White, Fiat’s 'blue pill', and even a groovy cameo from The Brady Bunch… But alongside the fun, came more serious (No More “Listen”), heartfelt (McDonald’s “Pay with Lovin’”), and uncomfortably somber ads… Like this one from Nationwide.

Out of 56 total ads, 50% contained a hashtag, and viewers weren’t afraid to use them, with thousands weighing in on Twitter.

Annually, the morning after the BIG GAME has most media outlets "Monday Morning Quarterbacking"  each of the ads. Every year since 1989, USA Today has called upon ad enthusiasts to rank every commercial from best to worst, and this year was no different. The clear choice for “best” according to them was Budweiser’s “Lost Dog”, While the "worst" comes from uCool’s “Heroes Charge”

After an informal poll here at ScriptiLabs, we've averaged the top 3 favorites as:

  1. Lost Dog/Budweiser
  2. The Brady Bunch/Snickers
  3. Breaking Bad/Esurance

Which was your favorite?
