A round-up of this year's best Super Bowl ads, from avocados to AirBNB.
Atlanta, and most of America, is currently mourning the soul-crushing defeat of the Falcons at the hands of the New England Patriots. The game was incredible, and it even produced a few memorable ads. To justify the multi-million dollar cost of a 30-second commercial spot, corporations approved monumentally huge production budgets to ensure their commercials stood out. Here are seven of our favorites:
Avocados from Mexico: '#AvoSecrets'
The Illuminati turn off the Gregorian chants to discuss the latest crisis at hand: the big secret about avocados is out.
Budweiser: 'Born the Hard Way'
Budweiser peddles its own origin story and takes a shot at Trump's immigration policy in one fell swoop: German immigrant Adolphus Busch endures the arduous journey to the United States and finally makes it to St. Louis, where he meets business partner Eberhard Anheuser.
Skittles rehashes John Cusack's famous boombox serenade from "Say Anything." Romance the rainbow!!
84 Lumber: 'The Journey Begins'
Fox "banned" this six-minute ad for its allusions to Trump's wall, which may have been a blessing in disguise: it is now the #1 most-trending video on YouTube.
Buick: Cam Newton and Miranda Kerr
Cam Newton stiff-arming children... 'nuff said.
AirBNB: 'We Accept'
AirBNB asserted its core value -- tolerance of others -- in its Super Bowl ad, and backed it up backed up by pledging $4 million to the International Rescue Committee to support displaced people around the globe.
