Top 5 Super Bowl Ads of 2015

bryan cranston in super bowl ad

While Christmas is everyone’s favourite time of year when it comes to ads on TV, the annual Super Bowl, which many admit to only watching for the ads, comes a close second. According to the Wall Street Journal, a thirty second slot during the Super Bowl would set a brand back an eye-watering 4.5 million dollars. With so much money being invested on such a short amount of time, brands must go all out in their attempts to be the most talked about ad of the year. We’ve decided to bring you our five favourite ads of this year’s Super Bowl.

5) BMW’s i3 – Newfangled Idea

BMW gave us a good chuckle with an eye-opening reminder of just how far the world of technology has advanced in the last twenty years,

4) Nationwide – Invisible Mindy Kaling

Mindy does what we’d all actually do if we were invisible.

3) Esurance – Breaking Bad

Bryan Cranston proves he’s still capable of being absolutely hilarious. Even when in his Heisenberg character.

2) Clash of Clans – Liam Neeson’s Revenge

One of the most talked about mobile games of 2014 gets the Taken treatment.

1) Budweiser – Lost Dog

We admit we’d already seen this one in the run up to Sunday’s Super Bowl but it still manages to bring a tear to our eye every single time we see it. Last night was no different. Bravo Budweiser, bravo.

What as your favourite ad this year?
