THE BEST Commercials

Jeep: Groundhog Day

Jeep: Groundhog Day

Jeep managed to assemble Bill Murray, Stephen Tobolowsky, Brian Doyle-Murray, and a look-alike for Punxsutawney Phil in this hilarious Super Bowl spot for the Jeep Gladiator. This time, the human Phil is inspired to change things up right away as he heads off-road with his groundhog pal in his rugged new truck.

Walmart: Famous Visitors

Walmart: Famous Visitors

For their 2020 Super Bowl commercial, Walmart invited a variety of sci-fi characters to come pick up their online orders. We’ve got the extended version of the ad spot, which includes visits from Bill of Bill and Ted, Marvin the Martian, Groot, the aliens from Mars Attacks, Men in Black, Arrival, and Flash Gordon, among others.

Beetle: The Last Mile

Beetle: The Last Mile

The Volkswagen Beetle made its first appearance all the way back in 1938, and was produced in one form or another all the way until 2019 when the model was retired. VW sends off the bug with this moving animated tribute to the little car that could, accompanied by children’s choral version of the Beatles’ “Let It Be.”

A Holiday Reunion

A Holiday Reunion

It may be a thinly-veiled commercial for Xfinity’s cable and internet services, but with a grown-up Elliott reuniting with E.T. more than 30 years after they first met, this holiday promo will still tug at your heartstrings. Still, it made us wonder if E.T.’s telecommunication provider has data caps too.

Aliens

Aliens

Not the be confused with the James Cameron movie of the same name, Revolution Studio writer/director Timur Abdulov’s CGI short is packed with explosive action and effects as a group of creatures terrorizes Earth. But not to fear, it’s just a cleverly-disguised commercial for a contactless payment company.

The World’s Shortest Test Drive

The World’s Shortest Test Drive

To promote some of the many high-tech features in its 2019 Sorento SUV, Kia and David&Goliath put together this precisely-choreographed promotional spot which manages to demonstrate 17 different capabilities in under 30 seconds, and over a distance of 335 feet. Read on for the full list of features.

Yetis Prefer Igloo

Yetis Prefer Igloo

Igloo takes aim at one of its more recent competitors with this silly commercial in which we learn that 9 out of 10 Yetis prefer Igloo coolers. However, we think actual yetis would prefer to store their beer in an ice cave, or maybe in a big pile of snow.

Karma

Karma

A man tries to go through airport security, and finds himself subject to all manner of humiliation and inconvenience. This witty, yet poignant promo clip for Portuguese non-profit AnimalifePT is a not so subtle reminder to never abandon a pet. Ever.

Metal Ramen Commercial

Metal Ramen Commercial

This commercial for one of Nissin’s instant noodle dishes starts out innocently enough, but then the little chicken presents an offering to the devil, and things get very intense, very quickly. Language is no barrier to enjoying this one. Explanation here (in Japanese).

SNL: Roach-Ex

SNL: Roach-Ex

There’s nothing worse than walking into your house to discover a cockroach doing push-ups on the carpet. But the roaches in this SNL commercial parody are even more of a nuisance than in real-life. Don Cheadle seems to enjoy playing slimy vermin these days.

Turkish Airlines: The Journey

Turkish Airlines: The Journey

Director Ridley Scott returns to his roots of commercial directing with this short film he made for Turkish Airlines, in which a mysterious woman follows illustrated clues to tail another in what ends up being a beautiful travel promotion for Istanbul.

Game of Thrones x Bud Light

Game of Thrones x Bud Light

It’s one of the stranger product tie-ins we’ve seen, but Anheuser-Busch and HBO teamed up for this commercial that ran during the Super Bowl, selling not mead or Dornish wine, but Bud Light, and filled with easter eggs to tease the final season of Game of Thrones.

Carried Away with Halfthor

Carried Away with Halfthor

At 6’9″ and 389 lbs, world’s strongest man Hafthor Bjornsson (aka “The Mountain” on Game of Thrones) truly is a giant among men. In this commercial spot for Norwegian grocery company Kolonial, he uses his ample strength to improve their home delivery service.

Home Alone with Google Assistant

Home Alone with Google Assistant

Google wins Christmas marketing with this commercial starring Macaulay Culkin as a grown up version of Home Alone‘s Kevin McCallister. Instead of setting everything up manually, he automates his tasks and sets reminders with Google Assistant.

John Lewis Xmas Ad 2018

John Lewis Xmas Ad 2018

This year’s heartstring-puller from UK retailer John Lewis & Partners tells the reverse-chronological story of music legend Elton John, and the importance of a single gift that defined his life. Super Bowl commercial makers, this is how you do it.

SNL: Beta Force

SNL: Beta Force

Saturday Night Live’s latest fake commercial pokes fun at all of those testosterone supplements designed to restore virility and manliness, while reminding us that sometimes we just need to let nature take its course instead of trying to fight it.

Unofficial Trader Joe’s Commercial

Unofficial Trader Joe’s Commercial

“It’s the stuff that’s organic, and the stuff that’s not. It’s the cars that won’t fit in the parking lot.” If you’ve ever shopped at a Trader Joe’s, you will immediately relate to every single word in carlsfinefilms‘ little ditty that dates all the way back to 2009.

Bohemian Rhapsody: Kids’ Edition

Bohemian Rhapsody: Kids’ Edition

This extended ad spot for UK retailers John Lewis & Partners + Waitrose & Partners is proof positive that commercials are so much better outside of the US, as a choir of kids perform a slightly modified version of Queen’s classic while performing a charming space opera.

KFC: Football Dive

KFC: Football Dive

This hilarious World Cup commercial spot for KFC South Africa pokes fun at players who make a big show out of minor injuries. Though in this case, the goal is a red card for something other than a free kick. (Thanks Alex!)

The Closet

The Closet

A man turns up in another man’s closet wearing nothing but a pair of boxers, but that’s merely the punchline of this epic 1-minute commercial spot for the French video channel Canal+, filled with action and adventure. Directed by Matthijs Van Heijningen for BETC.

PS4 Japan: We Can Do It!

PS4 Japan: We Can Do It!

Created by POOL inc., DENTSU, and Taiyo Kikaku Co. this Japanese commercial for the Sony PlayStation 4 is packed with creativity, with players not just dreaming about their superpowers and abilities from video games, but actually living with them.

Alexa Loses Her Voice

Alexa Loses Her Voice

In this extended Super Bowl LII spot from Amazon, voice assistant Alexa has laryngytis, and the company has to find a temporary stand-in for her dulcet and soothing tones. We love the idea of Rebel Wilson taking over duties permanently.

Old Spice: Red Sweater (Translated)

Old Spice: Red Sweater (Translated)

During the 2018 Grammys, Old Spice debuted one of its typically offbeat commercials – made even more cryptic by being entirely in French. If you’re interested in what they were actually saying in the spot, here’s the version with English subtitles. Good boy, Old Spice!

Whopper Neutrality

Whopper Neutrality

Net Neutrality took a major punch to the gut, and its loss could mean major, undesireable changes to the way all of us use the internet. It’s a bit of a confusing topic, so Burger King decided to explain what could happen if the same thing applied to selling Whoppers.

GoPro: 2017 in Review

GoPro: 2017 in Review

Another year has passed, and GoPro action cameras yet again helped to capture some of the year’s most epic, beautiful, entertaining, and dramatic sights. There’s no way a sub-3-minute video can sum it all up, but it’s still worth a watch – even if it is just a commercial.
