Whether you were rooting for the Chiefs or the 49ers, one thing is certain, the Super Bowl commercials steal the show every year.
Super Bowl 2020 commercials were no exception. They addressed serious issues, yet still had a comedic and heartwarming twist.
Ads for the 2020 Super Bowl cost an astronomical 5.6 million dollars for a 30-second spot, which breaks down to $186,666 per second and an extremely valuable marketing opportunity.
Here are the 10 best 2020 Super Bowl commercials.
Most Likely to Make you Cry: Never Forget Loretta
You better have a box of tissues nearby for this one.
We all can relate to Loretta’s husband in this commercial. Google reminds us of the importance of remembering a loved one and their ad really yanks at the heart.
In case you didn’t know, Google can help us remember our loved ones with their voice assistant tech and stores everything in the cloud, helping us never forget our loved ones.
Best Celebrity Endorsement: Chrissy & John Can Sell Anything
The Genesis commercial this year proved two things, John Legend and Chrissy Teigen are adorable, and they can sell us anything they want. New luxury or old luxury, we are into it.
Plus, it doesn’t hurt to be reminded that John Legend was coined “sexiest man alive” by People for a good reason.
Most Humanizing: Uniting Americans
Budweiser is known for having a legendary commercial every Super Bowl, and this year was no exception.
Drawing at your patriotic strings this one hit close to home and is bound to be a topic of discussion at the office today.
Budweiser reminds us, we are all typical Americans and need to support each other and be thankful for everyone around us. It’s hard to promote a message of unity and equality gracefully, but Budweiser succeeded this year and it was inspiring.
Most Creepy: Cranston Twinning
We’ve seen Brain Cranston in many forms over the years from Breaking Bad to Malcolm in the Middle, but this Shining spoof, wins the award for most creepy.
Not sure if we are going to run to the store and by Mountain Dew, but the commercial is definitely memorable.
And it’s going to be really hard to get the image of Cranston dressed up as the creepy Shining twins out of our mind.
Most Nostalgic: Groundhog Day with a Jeep
This one was a no brainer, and a perfect way to pay tribute to Ground Hog Day 2020.
Bill Murray stars in Jeep’s commercial bringing him back to the same recurring moment from the 1993 film.
This commercial ties in a lot of favorite memories from the original film, while Murray drives around in a new Jeep with Punxsutawney Phil in the passenger’s seat.
Most Likely to Make you Laugh: Reese’s Awareness
This is the first time Reese’s has ever promoted a product during the Super Bowl, and this year they opted for pushing the Take5 candy bar.
The awareness campaign is funny, informative and made us crave a candy bar.
Plus, we can’t forget to mention, dads probably related to it the most, since it was packed full of classic dad jokes.
Most Unexpected: Khal Drogo Strips Down
Jason Momoa is known for his muscular frame and long locks from Drogo in Game of Thrones to Arthur in Aquaman.
But Rocket Mortgage gets points for creativity and video editing skills. Momoa embraces being comfortable in your own home and the freedom to “let my guard down.”
And that means peeling off his bulky muscles, chiseled core and long luscious locks. This commercial is funny and a little creepy. Also, watching scrawny Momoa trying to bench press just the bar is quite nauseating.
Most On Brand: Morty Pushes Pringles
It’s hard to know if you are watching an actual Rick and Morty episode or if it’s a commercial.
The characters are trapped inside a Pringles commercial and Morty becomes a robot pushing new Pringle flavors.
How many new flavors will they have to try before they can get out of the commercial? We are confident Rick will handle robot Pringle pushing Morty pretty quickly.

Most Relatable: Life Before Alexa
It’s hard to remember what life was like before voice-assistant technology. But Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi kick off this Amazon commercial questioning what life was like before Alexa.
The commercial continues by taking us back in time, showing how different eras might have requested things Alexa can do now with humans instead.
It’s clever, it’s funny and reminds us of Alexa’s capabilities all wrapped up in one ad.
Most Football Centric: Female Empowerment
We are ending our roundup with the most empowering commercial and football-forward commercial of the entire night.
Katie Sowers is the first-ever female and openly gay coach in a Super Bowl history AND got to be in the spotlight for a Microsoft commercial.
This commercial shares her story and encourages other young women to follow their hearts. It’s female-forward, uplifting and honestly, long overdue.
It’s about time we have a female on the field!
