My Top 5 Favorite Super Bowl 54 Commercials

‘Kayso even though I did NOT watch the game yesterday (Another FUCK YOU Award has been issued) I DID tune in to the commercials.

The past decade (at least) the Super Bowl Commercials have been boring, lame, or both. This year I was pleasantly surprised by how funny, clever, and (sometimes) touching they were. Yeah there were still a few duds, but they were in the minority.

So here are my 5 top picks:

  1. Rocket Mortage: Get Comfortable – featuring Beefcake Jason Momoa
  2. NEXT 100 || NFL Super Bowl LIV Commercial – the commercial seamlessly morphed into live footage. Brilliant and very emotionally charged. (How many NFL Super Stars can you spot?)
  3. Facebook Groups: Ready to Rock? – I’m not a fan of Facebook, but I like their commercials – especially this one that uses Twisted Sister‘s “I Wanna Rock“. \m/\m/ (and how ’bout those cameos by Chris Rock and Sly…)
  4. Well, it wasn’t the Super Bowl Halftime Show but hopefully that put a smile on Dee Snider’s face.

  5. Walmart: Famous Visitors – I literally DESPISE Walmart, but I have to admit this one made me laugh out loud!
  6. Cheetos: Can’t Touch This – It’s Hammer Time!

Honorable Mentions (in no particular order):

  • Tide: Laundry Later – A very clever series of commercials with a running gag!

  • Doritos: The Cool Ranch – featuring Lil Nas (Loved his horse!) and Sam Elliott.
  • Amazon: Before Alexa (Again, all about the cameos.) – DRAGON!
  • Discover: No, We Don’t Charge Annual Fees (More cameos…)
  • Michelob Ulta: Jimmy Works Out – featuring Jimmy Fallon and Jon Cena.
  • T-Mobile: Mama’s Tests – featuring Anthony Anderson and his Mom (Who are you in a club with? LOL!)
  • Jeep: Groundhog Day – featuring Bill Murray (Natch!), Sonny & Cher, and the cutest groundhog EVER!
  • Toyota: “no title” – featuring Cobie Smulders (I just had this washed.)

What’s Rockin’ My World (9.27.2019)

What’s “trending” at Chez Rock Vixen…

  1. Suffice to say, after reading this book I’m looking at what I eat in a whole new way.
  2. Placerville Public House Pub Nachos:  Kettle Chips smothered with their Smoky Beer Cheese. (This usually comes topped with shredded carnitas but asked that the meat be substituted with veggies – in this case zucchini.)
    The nachos are topped off with Black Bean Salsa, Green Onions, and a healthy drizzle of Habanero Sour Cream. It was out-of-this-world!
    (I have visions of creating my own signature version. Nachos à la Vixen anyone?)
  3. Dee Snider slamming the NFL for continuing to ignore ‘heavy metal’ when choosing acts for Super Bowl halftimes. (Hell, I don’t remember them having any Hard Rock bands perform either.)
  4. Joaquin Phoenix is supporting animals in a BIG way. I mean, BIG. This poster will on a huge billboard smack dab in the middle of Times Square.
