Super Bowl Sunday is one of the biggest nights of the year for television. On Sunday, February 12, the Philadelphia Eagles and the Kansas City Chiefs competed in Super Bowl LVII which took place in Glendale, Arizona at the State Farm Stadium with the Kansas City Chiefs winning the big game with a score of 38-35.
Rihanna performed live (the first time in five years) as the Halftime headliner presented by Apple Music with a lively 13-minute medley of hits while revealing she’s expecting her second child. Grammy-winning country singer Chris Stapleton sung the national anthem, Abbott Elementary Emmy-winning actress Sheryl Lee Ralph performed “Lift Every Voice and Sing”, and R&B legend Babyface sung “America the Beautiful.”
But if you’re like me and not into football, then the real entertainment is the Super Bowl ads. Over time the ads have gotten bigger with major celebrities and businesses pairing together to promote their brand and the cost for a coveted spot has gone up. In 1967 a Super Bowl ad cost around $37,000 for a 30-second spot and now that number has jumped to $7 million for 30-seconds.
Along with ads for brands, upcoming films and TV shows dropped exclusive first looks and new footage during the Super Bowl. This year 65, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, Animal Control, Transformers: Rise of the Beasts, Scream VI, The Flash, Creed III, Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny, and Fast X were some of the projects that teased what’s to come.
Brands gathered big star power once again for Super Bowl LVII. Online shopping brand Rakuten gave Clueless fans an iconic reunion with Alicia Silverstone and Elisa Donovan starring in their ad. Ben Stiller channeled Derek Zoolander in the Pepsi Zero Sugar ad. John Travolta gave “Summer Nights” vibes with T-Mobile alongside Zach Braff and Donald Faison. Jack Harlow introduced BBQ Doritos and Maya Rudolph showed off Ma&Ya’s. Other commercials relied heavily on emotion. The Farmer’s Dog ad left pet owners misty eyed and running to kiss their furry companions while Tubi’s ad caused frustration and confusion as to who turned the channel.
