The Best Commercials of 2015

1. Apple TV – “The Future of Television” – The spot for Apple’s latest innovation has the bouncy sort of colors and sounds that portend utopia.

The Super Bowl was 6 days ago. I am posting this list on a Saturday. The biggest trends this year were cinematic montages and Paul Rudd.


4. AXE, “Find Your Magic” – Inclusivity.

Weirder is better, and so are surprises.

1. Squarespace – “Om” – My takeaway from Super Bowl XLIX: We’ll all be better off if we just let Jeff Bridges lead us in meditation.


The Best Commercials of 2014

1. AXE – “Make Love, Not War” – With this Super Bowl spot, the deodorant brand made a simple, but brilliant, pacifist statement, with a tribute to passion that avoided schmaltz by having an edge.

2. Totino’s – “Pizza Freaks Unite” – Ever since directing a series of spots for Old Spice, Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim have had a significant effect on the commercial landscape. So whenever they are involved in a new ad, it is an event, as in this punk rock song featuring pizza freaks, pizza sax, vocal distortion, and a total lack of corporate b.s.

I am just about 100% positive that halftime commercials did not use to be included in the USA Today Ad Meter.  Now, it appears they are included (at least for the most part).  Well, regardless, I did consider the halftime commercials.  I pretty much had to this year.

EDIT: I’m sorry, I meant to put the ironic, yet sincere “Make Love, Not War” by Axe at Number 1.  Please place everything else down one slot.

1. Honda – “Hugfest” – Don’t ever stop hugging, Fred.

2. Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee – I’ll just quote @Seinfeld2000: “Honestly was that a dream or was sienfeld realy just on TV”

3. Radio Shack – “Phone Call” – The perfect dramatization of a classic joke.

4. Budweiser – “Puppy Love” – Not particularly clever, but there was a puppy.

5. H&M – “Beckham” – This one speaks for itself

Honorable Mention: The Bud Light “Epic Night” spots felt like a missed opportunity for such a cool idea, but at least Reggie Watts was in them.

Watch And/Or Listen To This: FIAT 500L – “Italian Invasion”

It’s my first time spotlighting a commercial in my “Watch And/Or Listen to This” feature.  And what has compelled me to break tradition?  Well, I think I may be in love: the redhead with the face like Malin Åkerman’s has stolen my heart.  (The midriff-baring blonde isn’t too bad, either. [Interestingly enough, most of the YouTube are enamored with the raven-haired donna in the blue dress.])  Also, there’s a T. Rex song.
