Top Food-Focused Commercial Picks of Super Bowl 50

Heinz. Doritos. Snickers. Avocados. Bai. We’re not planning our next snack run—though this would be a pretty solid start to the list—we’re running through a few of our favorite food (and beverage)-focused commercials of Super Bowl 50, 2016.

Heinz

Wiener dogs dressed as hot dogs did not disappoint. Buns flapping, legs pumping…by the time these little backyard barbecue cuties reached the Heinz family we were emotionally invested.

Doritos

First there’s the ultrasound spot. Because a baby flying out of his mother’s womb for a Dorito like a rabid raccoon tracking its next target is too hilarious to ignore.

 

And then there were the Doritos dogs. The antics of the dogs are enough to bring you in but the cashier’s “Whaaaaa?” is absolute perfection.

 

Snickers

Many of us have seen Willem Dafoe in a dress before, but we definitely prefer this comedic version. It was the perfect cherry on top of the “you’re not you when you’re hungry” sundae.

 

Avocados

Some say this one is weird, but to that we say phhllllpppbb. The Cube of Rubik, Scott Baio, the double-dipping non-regenerating alien who gets lasered at the end—it’s funny—and it makes you want to find the nearest bowl of guac.

 

Bai

For us, two things that don’t make sense equated to two wrongs making a right. It’s easy to remember the key takeaway and what the commercial is for. Ya heard?

 

Super Bowl love also to Bud Light and Pepsi. In addition, half of us would like to give a nod to Puppybabymokey while the other half of us think this Chucky-meets-The-Island-of-Dr.-Moreau creepiness makes Dew a don’t.
