Favorite Super Bowl 2018 Commercials – NFL homoerotic dance, Tide metacommercial, etc

Hands down the most watchable commercial during the Super Bowl 2018 game was the “Dirty Dancing” sequence starring Eli Manning and Odell Beckham, Jr. of the New York Giants, in what must surely have been the most homoerotic commercial in the history of the Super Bowl, and the NFL, and football.

If you can stand seeing just one Super Bowl commercial this year, it should be the one for Tide, since it contains all the other Super Bowl commercials you’ve ever seen — all coming in with the tide.

Did you know that Jeff Bezos had a sense of humor? This commercial would be funny for people who aren’t already creeped out by Alexa.

This commercial, as one Tweeted pointed out to me, shows the hegemony of the junk food industry. Agreed, BUT I mean, Busta Rhymes AND Missy Elliott tracks!! Peter Dinklage AND Morgan Freeman rapping!

This last one, for Wix, I include because my niece helped write it!

Bonus: Leslie Odom Jr. singing America the Beautiful. Please pay attention to the lyrics, some of which are bluntly relevant

America! America!
God mend thine every flaw,
Confirm thy soul in self-control,
Thy liberty in law
