The Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ dominance over the Kansas City Chiefs was undeniable on Sunday, but the annual ranking of the Super Bowl TV ads was not quite as clear. Many reviewers picked Amazon’s commercial featuring Michael B. Jordan playing a “beautiful vessel” for Amazon’s Alexa. Jordan’s eyes flash blue and he responds in a seductive voice to the woman’s questions, making her swoon with phrases like, “There are 16 tablespoons in a cup.” Another hit was Cadillac’s update of Edward Scissorhands, with Timothée Chalamet playing Edgar, the son of Edward Scissorhands, in a pitch for Cadillac’s new Lyriq car. Anheuser-Busch showed pre-pandemic scenes of people sharing a beer with the message: “So when we’re back, let’s remember, it’s never just about the beer. It’s about saying that simple human truth, we need each other.” [The Associated Press, The Washington Post]
