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.

'Money Heist' Spinoff Focused on Pedro Alonso's Character Berlin is Officially In the Works

We’re just mere days away from the final five episodes of Money Heist (La Casa de Papel). 

But if you’re in your feels about the series coming to an end on Friday, December 3, we have some news that might just cheer you up! 

While we’ll be saying goodbye to our favorite Bella Ciao robbers responsible for the biggest heist in the world, Netflix announced a new series focused on Berlin.

The spinoff will be centered around the beloved character portrayed by Pedro Alonso.

Berlin may have died in Season 2, but such a force lives on in memories and flashbacks.

The spinoff, titled Berlin: A New Series, is set to premiere sometime in 2023.

While no plot has been revealed, it will likely dig into the mysterious life of the electric character.

It also provides some clarity surrounding the flashbacks about Berlin and his son in the first half of season 5 of Money Heist, which puzzled fans as they couldn’t figure out how they fit into the overall story. 

As for Alonso, he’s “happy” about the spinoff. 

“I am deeply grateful to be able to connect with people all over the world and receive so much love and such a memorable time. We started this series walking into the unknown and we have been winning ever since. You fans are our accomplices and thank you for that,” he said at a fan event celebrating Friday’s premiere. 

Money Heist initially premiered in Spain and received a lukewarm reception. After it aired its final episode, Netflix added the two seasons to its international library, and the series took off! The series about Robin Hood-esque criminals became a global sensation spawning three more seasons sponsored by Netflix. 

To this day, it’s one of the streaming giant’s biggest shows.

9 Best Christmas Movies to Spread Holiday Cheer

9 Best Christmas Movies to Watch 2021

December is the start of a holly, jolly month! 

And what better way to get into the spirit of the holidays than by streaming some heartwarming and festive Christmas movies on Netflix?

From Netflix to Hallmark to HBO Max — spread the Christmas cheer to those far and near! 

Here are the 9 movies to check out in December 2021:

 

Love Hard – Netflix (Nov 5)

A rom-com where you find yourself rooting for the underdog (despite the cat-fishing) and not the guy that belongs on the present-day version of an Abercrombie bag. Bonus: it stars Nina Dobrev from The Vampire Diaries and Jimmy O. Yang in Silicon Valley.

 

Next Stop, Christmas – Hallmark Channel (Nov 6) 

If you love the Polar Express and Back to the Future, this movie is for you. Christopher Lloyd taps into the conductor role on a time-traveling train as a woman ponders what her life would be like if she married a former boyfriend who went onto become a famous sportscaster and mysteriously finds herself 10 years in the past. 

 

Father Christmas is Back – Netflix (Nov 7)

Four widely different sisters reunite for Christmas in a Yorkshire mansion and find themselves uncovering family secrets when their long lost father shows up for dinner. Elizabeth Hurley, Nathalie Cox, and Kelsey Grammer star in the comedy. 

 

Home Sweet Home Alone – Disney + (Nov 12)

He’s no Kevin McCallister, but Archie Yates as Max Mercer certainly gives him a run for his money in this “Home Alone” sequel. Max is the kid left behind as his family travels to Japan for the holidays. When a married couple tries to steal an heirloom from his home, they don’t expect him to retaliate. And the rest is history! 
 

 

The Princess Switch 3: Romancing the Star – Netflix (Nov 18)

Vanessa Hudgens x3! Royal lookalikes Margaret and Stacy turn to third doppelganger Fiona for help retrieving a stolen priceless Christmas relic.

 

A Boy Called Christmas – Netflix (Nov 24)

A young boy named Nikolas sets on a quest to find his father and stumbles upon a village of elves called Elfhelm. 

 

8-Bit Christmas – HBO Max (November 25)

Set in suburban Chicago in the 1980s, a 10-year-old sets out to get the ultimate Christmas gift of his generation: a video game system. The comedy stars Neil Patrick Harris (How I Met Your Mother), Steve Zahn, and Winslow Fegley. 

 

The Christmas Contest – Hallmark Channel (11/28)

It’s the Fuller House reunion you didn’t know you needed! Queen of Christmas Candace Cameron Bure stars in her 11th Hallmark movie as Lara, who faces off against Ben (played by John Brotherton) in a Christmas competition. We can’t wait to see these two back together onscreen considering their chemistry in the Full House spinoff. Maybe we’ll get a surprise appearance from Danny Tanner? We dream.

 

The Christmas House 2: Deck Those Halls – Hallmark Channel (12/18)

Not only was The Christmas House Hallmark’s first-ever LGBTQ holiday movie, but it was also a really great holiday film. So, it only makes sense that the network would tap in for a sequel about the Mitchell brothers competing to see who can build the best Christmas house. Robert Buckley, Ana Ayora, Jonathan Bennett return alongside Sharon Lawrence, Treat Williams, Brad Harder.
