Although the Super Bowl just pasted, commercials have been circulating since early January.  America’s ad makers have bombarded the internet with their latest, almost entirely celebrity-fueled spots during the big game last Sunday night. Among the stars lending their talent to this year’s crop are Kevin Hart for Hyundai, Steven Tyler for Skittles and Drake who recreates his “Hotline Bling” dance moves for T-Mobile. Here are Magnet’s top five.

Drake in “Restricted Bling”

Drake’s “Hotline Bling” was one the the most talked about music videos from 2015, and one of the funniest commercials from the 2016 Super Bowl. The commercial for T-Mobile highlights that with restrictions on data, it’s not as easy to call someone on their cell phone. “These changes don’t ruin the song at all,” Drake remarks.

Willem Dafoe in “Marilyn”

Six years ago, Snickers used Super Bowl XLIV to premiere an ad featuring Betty White and Abe Vigoda as people who just weren’t themselves when they were hungry. This time, it’s Willem Dafoe, from spiderman, recreating Marilyn Monroe’s famous photo shoot above a subway grate.

Kevin Hart in “First Date”

In the best of Hyundai’s several Super Bowl ads, Kevin Hart plays the most over-protective dad on the planet. He goes to great lengths to keep tabs on his daughter.

Steven Tyler in “The Portrait”

Ever wanted to know what Steven Tyler would look like if he were made out of Skittles? This ad has got you covered.

Heinz’s “Weiner Stampede”

If you like dachshunds dressed as hot dogs, then you are going to love this new ad from Heinz.

Whether or not you tune into the Super Bowl to watch the game, the halftime show or the commercials, this 50 year American tradition is enjoyed by more than 114.4 million from all around the world, making this the most viewed event on television. No wonder so many companies and businesses dream of having their name displayed during the Super Bowl for all to see.
