Celebrity Super Bowl Commercials 2016: Drake, Kevin Hart, Ryan Reynolds & More
Super Bowl commercials don’t need big names to become the stuff of advertising legend, but having celebrity talent certainly improves their chances!
Here’s the famous folk you’ll see in this Sunday’s Super Bowl 50.
Drake for T-Mobile
Filming his “Hotline Bling” music video, this Canadian rapper is all too amenable to add lyrics to his hit song to include a rival cell phone company’s many restrictions.
Kevin Hart for Hyundai
The Ride Along star lends his daughter’s date his Hyundai Genesis, but only to monitor their goings-on with this company’s “Car Finder” feature.
Ryan Reynolds for Hyundai
The Deadpool hunk plays each and every resident of Ryanville, much to the delight (and distraction) of two ladies passing through in their Hyundai Elantra.
Liam Neeson for LG
The Taken star meets his younger self — played by Micheal Neeson, Liam’s son — to show off how bright the future is with this electronic company’s OLED television sets.
Helen Mirren for Budweiser
This Woman in Gold star and self-proclaimed “notoriously frank and uncensored British lady” calls drunk drivers human pollution in this Budweiser PSA, asking viewers to #GiveADamn and campaign for safe driving.
Alec Baldwin and Dan Marino for Amazon
The 30 Rock alum and the quarterback legend team up to plan the ultimate Super Bowl party, enlisting Amazon Echo’s A.I. for the definition of a “snack stadium.”
Seth Rogen, Amy Schumer, Paul Rudd, and Michael Pena for Bud Light
The comedic actors in this mock political ad try to convince this divided nation we can all agree on liking light beer… and Paul Rudd.
Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele for Squarespace
The Key and Peele alums play sports commentators who — when not mapping out football plays on sweatshirts — make “dope websites” with this Internet service. The duo will also provide live commentary during the big game.
Steven Tyler for Skittles
The Aerosmith frontman gives singing lessons to a taking Steven Tyler portrait made entirely of Skittles.
Scott Baio for Avocados From Mexico
This Happy Days alum plays an exhibit — alongside emojis and The Dress — in an alien race’s museum devoted to human culture.
Christopher Walken for Kia
This freaky-cool actor appears in a man’s walk-in/Walken closet to encourage him against beigeness and toward more exciting choices like the Kia Optima.
Serena Williams, Abby Wambach, Tony Hawk, T-Pain, Randy Johnson, and Harvey Keitel for Mini
These disparate celebs encourage viewers to ignore implications that the Mini Clubman is a “chick car,” a “gay car,” a “short man’s car,” etc.
Jeff Goldblum and Lil Wayne for Apartments.com
Singing “Movin’ On Up,” the theme song from The Jeffersons, Jeff literally moves on up “to a deluxe apartment in the sky” via a grand piano on a crane, arriving at a cookout hosted by Wayne… and George Washington?
T.J Miller for Shock Top
This Silicon Valley funnyman competes in an insult showdown with the orange wedge mascot of this beer company.
Willem Dafoe and Eugene Levy for Snickers
In this candy company’s latest “You’re Not You When You’re Hungry” ad, Willem plays a hangry Marilyn Monroe filming the infamous subway grate scene from The Seven Year Itch, while Eugene plays the naysaying fan operator.
Seal for the NFL
Super Bowl Babies — i.e. people born in a city nine months after its Super Bowl win — convene in choruses to sing Seal’s “Kiss From a Rose,” the ad ending with the singer himself crooning his most famous song.
