The game isn’t the only reason why people around the world tune into the Superbowl every year! In fact, we actually tuned in for the “half-time” performance and the COMMERCIALS.
Via the New York Times, companies invest more than $5 million dollars for a 30 second commercial clip during the [once per year] sports game.
“The briefing illustrates the effort companies put forth each year to market the most expensive commercial space on TV. The average cost of a 30-second ad for the Super Bowl crept up to $5 million this year, according to ad buyers, from an estimated $4.8 million last year.”
So we find it safe to say that each company works extremely hard on the ad., especially because they know that MOST of the world will be watching!
But were we the only ones who found it wayyyyy to easy picking our favorite commercials this year?!
Normally there’s a challenge! But there weren’t too many great ones last night!
Check out our TOP 3 favorite commercials from Superbowl LII below:
No. 1 [Red M&M Becomes Actor Danny DeVito]
HILARIOUS! M&M did such an amazing job on this commercial, hence why it landed in our number one slot.
After 3 people tried to eat the red m&m he picks up a lucky penny off of the ground, while wishing he were human at the same time. Moments later the M&M turns into a human Danny DeVito, who then runs through the streets asking others if they want to eat him.
It was so funny [check out the commercial above].
Can you guys believe that Danny DeVito is really 73 years old? WOW.
No. 2 [E-Trade Older People Working]
If you’re unfamiliar with the company “e-trade” we think you need to get better acquainted, especially after last nights commercial.
“E–Trade Financial Corporation (stylized as E*TRADE) is a financial services company headquartered in New York City. It is an online discount stock brokerage firm for self-directed investors. Investors can buy and sell such securities as stocks, bonds, options, mutual funds, and exchange-traded funds via electronic trading.”
The commercial turned seniors into cheerleaders, pilots, text support specialist, and our favorite:
All while chanting, “I’m 85 and I want to go home!”

No. 3 [Toyota Channels Lauren Woolstencroft]
This commercial was a favorite of out, not because of the product [which wasn’t displayed until the end] but because of what the commercial stood for.
Lauren Woolstencroft has won 8 paralympic gold medals, and the commercial focuses on how she was able to continuously beat the odds against her.
“If you knock me down, I’ll get up again.”
“Start you IMPOSSIBLE.”[CLICK HERE TO CHECK OUT THE COMMERCIAL]
