The Super Bowl is one of the most anticipated events of the year, and not just for the football. Everyone loves to watch the hilarious commercials. Big name companies shell out a lot of money in order to get these highly viewed spots. Each year there are two types of commercials: the really funny commercials and the really weird commercials. At Advanced Imaging Centers, we’re always entertained by the “what were they thinking” commercials. Here are some of the ones we thought missed the mark this year.
If you missed this one, you’re one of the lucky ones. I’m not sure what Mountain Dew was going for with this one, but maybe the fact that we’re left scratching our heads and talking to our friends asking, “What was that?” works just fine. There is a puppy-monkey-baby that busts in the room licking people’s faces while repeating “Puppy monkey baby”. Go ahead and watch…it’s just plain weird.
Steven Tyler as Skittles.
One of Steven Tyler’s defining features is his large mouth, but what happens when you have a bigger than life Steven Tyler mouth made of skittles shrieking his old songs? How about when the skittle mouth falls on the floor and continues singing? Nothing good. You feel incredibly uncomfortable. This one is on the stranger side of things.
Snickers showing a little too much leg.
Willem Dafoe was showing a lot of leg on this commercial and I mean, A LOT. The commercial starts out focusing on Dafoe’s legs as his white dress flies in the wind. The shot immediately stops on his grumpy face as someone offers him a Snickers. This one was pretty funny, but was still a strange one. I don’t think anyone was prepared to see Willem Dafoe showing off more than we’ve ever seen from him.
Doritos getting a little... a lot too weird.
A woman and her significant other are getting an ultrasound. The woman started complaining that her husband was eating Doritos. As she was complaining, they notice the baby is reaching his hands out wherever the Dad moves the chip. It seemed pretty funny and I was laughing along…until the mom threw the chip across the room and the baby dove out to get it…you’ll have to watch this one, it’s bizarre!
