Super Bowl Commercials That Will Make the Game (Almost) Tolerable

Sasha Brown-Worsham

There is only one reason I would ever consider watching the Super Bowl: commercials. Sometimes the halftime show is good, too, but mostly, it's all about the commercials.

This year, a few have been released early and are making the rounds on social media. So, if you are like me and will spend this Sunday somewhere between bored out of your skull and stressed about calories, at least you will have these spots of brightness in an otherwise snooze-a-rific evening.

Also, drink a lot of beer. My advice to you.

Here are five of the funniest Super Bowl commercials to look for on Sunday:

Volkswagen and Darth Vader:

This one is a favorite of anyone in their late 20s or early 30s (and now with the new generation, too). Since all of us secretly want our preschooler to act like this, we are all smiling a little brighter because of this spot.

Kenny G, luxury prison, and Audi:

Proof that Kenny G -- that smooth saxophone player we all love to hate -- actually has a sense of humor about himself. This one is priceless.


This one made me laugh out loud. It's very Office Space-esque and perhaps a little too true for some, especially those of us who live in cities where people actually drive like this (ahem, Boston). I actually laughed out loud.

I was disappointed with this one until the very end. It's kind of like a real car budget rip-off of the movie Cars, but the last line is pretty funny.

E*Trade Babies:

I find E*Trade babies funny. I find uncensored E*Trade babies drop dead hilarious. This one was by far my favorite.

Which one is your favorite? Will you be watching for the commercials?
