As long as the Super Bowl keeps attracting a lot of eyes, companies will be willing to spend big bucks to get their brands in front of audiences.
And that also means handing celebrities suitcases of cash to have them endorsing your product. So yeah, during a pandemic that’s changed so much, it’s somewhat comforting to see that celebrity-starring Super Bowl ads are indeed still a thing – and that the level of cringe hasn’t dropped an iota too. Okay, well… some aren’t bad.
From Timothée Chalamet playing Edward Scissorhands’ son, Edgar Scissorhands, to Michael B. Jordan embodying Alexa in a woman’s fantasy, to Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher kind of… singing (?) a play on Shaggy’s “It Wasn’t Me” – here are 10 celebrity Super Bowl Commercials of 2021 that you’ll either like… or really, really won’t.
