The Top 5 Foodie Ads for Superbowl XLVII

The Top 5 Foodie Ads of Superbowl XLVII
The outlandish and witty ads that we get bombarded with on game day were at a premium this year, but there were a few standouts sandwiched in between a Destiny’s Child reunion and an exciting, close championship game.




5. Beck’s Sapphire – No Diggity

This one was simple, simply featuring the sleek bottle design of Beck’s Sapphire. However, there’s something about a fish serenading Blackstreet’s “No Diggity” that gives this ad a spot on the top 5:


4. Taco Bell – We Are Young

This one got some buzz on the web when it was released earlier this week and it made its national debut yesterday. The clip earned a good chuckle as the elderly wreaked havoc while a terrible Spanish version of Fun’s “We are Young” played in the background.


3. Got Milk? – The Rock’s Milk Mustache

This commercial portrayed Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson as a superhero making his way through the madness of the city, drinking milk (of course) to help him along on his crime-fighting errands.


2. Wonderful Pistachios – Crackin’ Gangnam Style

We thought we left Psy and Gangnam Style in 2012, but he made his way back for the Superbowl. At least for one last time, Gangnam Style was funny.


1. Doritos – Goat for Sale

A man buys a goat and quickly finds out why it was for sale. Well done, Doritos.


Late Addition – Jell-O Pudding Surprise

At the end of the game, Jell-O decided to give a surprise to the losing San Francisco 49ers. In the ad, it promised the city free pudding on Tuesday and mocked Baltimore in the process.

‘Grandpa Goes Wild’ and Vandalizes Football Stadium in New Taco Bell Super Bowl Ad


Taco Bell’s new Super Bowl ad plays up their “Live Más” slogan, featuring 87 year-old Bernie Goldblatt letting loose on a football field in a suped-up motorized scooter. Note: The sheer joy on his face as he throws his hands into the air, breathing in the sheer exhilaration of life is priceless.

The commercial takes “viewers on an unforgettable night depicting that anyone at any age can LIVE MÁS,” explains Taco Bell PR. The 60-second teaser includes shots of “Grandpa” careening around posts, knocking over water coolers and escaping security while stunting wheelies — check 0:42.

The full commercial will follow Goldblatt and his friends gallivanting in the night while the band fun.’s song “We are Young” plays in the background. In Spanish, of course.

Oh, Taco Bell.
