Superbowl Commercials Reflections 2017

As you may have noticed, we’re not big sportsball watchers, but it is usually worth watching the commercials from the Superbowl. We’ve hunted down quite a few after the fact, but there’s really only one that stands out.

So good! As has been their tradition, the music carries it so well. Never break the chain!

There’s been some talk about controversy and political statements, and we’ve watched several of those. The connections are vague to current events, and more than that, there’s no way that a big budget Superbowl commercial like these could be thrown together quickly enough to comment on current events. Ones making more general statements about issues, those were more political. But also more obvious.

I was intrigued by the number of unity and equality messages we were seeing, though… but then, after as divisive 2016 was, maybe these big companies decided that was a message everyone would be wanting to hear. Seems that might not have been the case…

There’s one other that I really enjoyed and surprised me. Like, I went from not planning to see the new Pirates of the Caribbean movie to planning to see it…

How about you – what Superbowl commercials stood out to you? Let us know in the comments – maybe we missed it!
