If your family is like the Pearson clan, Super Bowl Sunday is your holiday!

The Super Bowl is the biggest night on television and for good reason – it’s a mix of sports, music, and ads.

On Sunday, February 2nd, the San Francisco 49ers take on the Kansas City Chiefs in Miami with kickoff at 6:30 pm ET.

Jennifer Lopez and Shakira will share the stage for the halftime show.

But for some, all eyes will be on the commercials.

While most people skip through commercials on a daily basis, the industry has found a way to make them fun during the Super Bowl. Companies bring their A+ game when it comes to creative, controversial, and funny ideas, and they tend to hire top talent for the occasion.

According to Bleacher Report, in 2019 30-second ads ranged from $3-$5 million.

In other words, a lot of money goes into advertisements surrounding the big game and the halftime show.

Here are some of the ones that leaked ahead of time online.

 

Audi: Let It Go

Is this an alternate ending to Game of Thrones, perhaps? Audi capitalized on the popularity of the recently-ended HBO show by casting Maise Williams (Arya Stark) in an ad where she sings “Frozen’s” massive hit, “Let It Go.” If it feels a little hazy without context, their tagline is “Embracing the future starts with letting go of the past” and they’re promoting en electric car.

 

Doritos: Old Town Road

This monologue commercial is worth it solely to hear Oscar nominee and cowboy at heart Sam Elliot recite the words to Old Town Road, arguably the biggest song of the last year. It’s Elliot’s first on-camera commercial in 40 years.

The 60-second commercial continues with an epic showdown between Elliot and the song’s artist, Lil Nas X. You’ll have to watch that one live, though.

 

Michelob: Working Out

Michelob Ultra really wanted to associate their low-carb beer with working out, so they made their whole ad about fitness. It stars WWE’s John Cena, a fitness buff, and Jimmy Fallon, a beer buff who hates working out, who begins to understand the fitness craze with a little help from some famous friends.

 

Olay: #MakeSpaceForWomen

Olay is launching a space mission with an all-female cast of badass female astronauts. Busy Phillips, Youtube sensation Lilly Singh, Taraji P. Henson, and Katie Couric have all been tapped for the ad. Find out what the mission is on Feb 2.  

 

Amazon: B.A. – Before Alexa

It doesn’t matter that Ellen DeGeneres lived half her life in the “before Alexa” ages, but in the latest commercial, she and wife Portia de Rossi wonder what life was like before the voice-activated assistant did everything for them. The ad imagines several scenarios ranging from the Elizabethan times to the Nixon Era as people rely on friends and co-workers with similar names to Alexa. Amazon burned through a lot of money to produce this ad, but it was worthwhile as it may be the funniest video this year.

 

Pop-Tarts Pretzel

“From ho-hum to so yum,” Queer Eye’s Jonathan Van Ness brings sparkle and shine to help Pop-Tart’s promote their new pretzel pastries.

 

Bud Light: Choose Your Own Adventure

Bud Light release two different ads and asked for social media to vote for the one they should air during the Super Bowl. Version #1 features Post Malone walking into the store to buy his beloved beer when he realizes the new seltzer. An internal fight ensues between the two men inside before one woman drops some mad logic: you’re rich, get both! Come on, Posty.

The second ad finds our rockstar ordering a Bud Light Seltzer at the bar, but he’s thrown off when the bartender hands him a mango flavor. The little people working internally confirm he’s never tried a mango, but once he takes his first sip, his stomach, taste buds, and nose approve… and shut up, spleen.

 

Avocados From Mexico: Shopping for Your Avocados Isn’t Weird

If you’re wondering why Archie Andrews has been left to fend on his own on Riverdale, it’s because his mother, played by Molly Ringwald, is shooting avocado commercials for Avocados From Mexico. The fictitious shopping network sells merch for your avocados including a spiffy travel collection that would probably make for a good lunch bag.

 

The Mt. Dew Shining

Mountain Dew’s new commercial imagines a world where serial killers were sponsored by ads. Breaking Bad’s Bryan Cranston channels his best Jack Nickelson in The Shining as he hunts down his thirsty victim played by black-ish star, Tracee Ellis Ross.

 

Squarespace: Welcome to Winona

The Squarespace commercial makes us want to willingly step into the Upside Down. Winona Ryder is making a website in the town of Winona, Minnesota. That’s it, that’s the ad.

 

Trapped in a Pringles Commercial

Pringles teamed up with Adult Swim’s animated series “Rick and Morty” for a commercial about flavor stacking. Also, Rick and Summer are trapped in Pringles commercial, so let’s hope they at least got paid.

 

Chrysler: The Legend’s of Luxury

Power couple Chrissy Teigen and John Legend team up for a Chrysler Genesis commercial to “make luxury fun” as they kiss “old luxury” goodbye.

 

Tide: Airing Out Dirty Laundry

“It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” actor Charlie Day and “Schitt’s Creek” actress Emily Hampshire get ready forthe big game by airing some of their dirty laundry in a teaser ad for Tide. The full thing will be up on Feb 2.

‘The Summer I Turned Pretty’ Fans, We’ve Got Some Bad News About Season 3

Published

The Summer I Turned Pretty Season 2 Episode 7 Review Love Affair

Summer 2024 is going to be one without Belly, Conrad and Jeremiah. 

During Amazon’s Upfront event on Tuesday, which was attended by writer Jenny Han, Lola Tung, Gavin Casaelgno and Christopher Briney, it was revealed that the highly-anticipated third installment of the series is being delayed, with an expected release next year in 2025. 

While that isn’t ideal for everyone waiting to see how this love triangle pans out (you should probably just read the book, if you haven’t, at this point), there is some good news on the horizon. 

Minimal details about what to expect have been revealed, however, to make up for the long hiatus—season 2 aired its last episode in August 2023 making this a two-year gap—the third installment will come with an expanded episode count: 11 episodes instead of the previous 7 and 8 in season’s 1 and 2, respectively. 

And as an extra little something-something for fans, the official TSITP X account shared a video of the cast playing beach volleyball with the caption, “see you in Cousins in 2025.”

And even better—the series has already begun filming, which means that while there’s a wait, there’s also momentum and excitement. 

As for those who have read the book series—avert your eyes if you haven’t—it’s unclear if the 11 episodes will span the entire third book, We’ll Always Have Summer, which finds Belly making a choice between the brothers—or if it will divert from what’s already been established to something more fitting for television (and maybe even appeases the fandoms a bit more?).

I guess we’ll just have to wait and see!

When Is the Season 1 Finale of ‘Tracker’?

Published

When Is the Season Finale of 'Tracker' on CBS?

Tracker, CBS’ new hit series starring This Is Us actor Justin Hartley, was an instant hit amongst audiences after it premiered in February.

And now, 13 episodes later, the first season is coming to an end. 

Fans will have to say goodbye… for now… to Hartley’s Colter Shaw, a lone-wolf survivalist/reward seeker on May 19, 2024, when the series airs its season 1 finale. 

Titled “The Storm,” the 13th episode’s synopsis notes: “Colter investigates the disappearance of two amateur storm chasers that the local police have written off as an accidental drowning; Colter’s expert tracking skills lead him to uncover the seedy underbelly of a small town resort.”

Of course, fans are already looking forward to the episode’s guest star and Hartley’s former co-star Jennifer Morrison, who is just one of several recent A-list appearances on the thriller drama. Earlier episodes of this season saw Supernatural’s Jensen Ackles and Manifest’s Melissa Roxburgh guest star as Colter’s siblings, Russ and Dory Shaw, respectively. 

You can check out the season finale promo below, which finds Colter working against the clock to find his friend’s daughter alongside Morrison’s character. “She could still be alive,” he dramatically concludes as the teaser ends, reminding fans that he never gives up on those he’s helping. 

Many fans hoped for a romantic pairing between Hartley and Morrison, which never happened, but maybe this is their second shot at love. Even though he’s a nomad driven by wanderlust and the need to help citizens and police solve crimes, he still needs a romantic interest. For now, the chemistry has mostly been with Reenie (Fiona Rene), a firecracker lawyer who helps him get out of plenty of close calls, but there’s always a chance he’ll meet the “right one” during one of his many stops across the U.S. that will encourage him to settle down or join him. 

Check out the promo below and tune in next Sunday to see how the first season concludes:
