Super Bowl 54’s Most Memorable Commercials

Shanelle Tavarez

On Feb. 2, the Super Bowl took place and streamed on millions of American’s television screens. Football fans gave the game their full attention while others stayed to watch the debut of commercials.

The first quarter was introduced with a commercial honoring 100 years of the NFL.  A young boy caught a football and was told to “take it to the house,” by Aaron Donald, defensive tackle for the Los Angeles Rams. The boy took off running past tons of famous NFL faces. The story came to life when the boy ran onto field in Miami to give the ball to the referee.

The commercial symbolized the next generation and showed that Americans ready for another hundred years.

The second quarter brought commercials advertising Cheetos. It included an appearance by famous 80s rapper, MC Hammer. 

After the halftime show, a heartfelt advertisement for Google showed an older man asking Google to remember things about his wife that passed away. Another powerful commercial followed a father who hiked up a mountain to figuratively leave cancer behind and keep his family safe.

Lil Nas X and Billy Ray Cyrus made an appearance in a Doritos commercial. Lil Nas X was challenged to a western duel that turned into a dance battle.

Another commercial was one meant to inspire women all over America. It was about Katie Sowers, the first female assistant coach in Super Bowl history. Sowers is the offensive assistant coach for the San Francisco 49ers. 

Super Bowl 54 didn’t disappoint those that only watch the annual event for its commercials. Tons of entertaining and heartwarming ads played in between the game.
