In Super Bowl LV, Tom Brady and his new team won his seventh ring with a one-sided victory. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers had an impressive blowout win over Patrick Mahomes and his Kansas City Chiefs, with a score of 31 to 9.

Tom Brady affirmed his “living legend” status by now having more Super Bowl wins than any other NFL team. His first two touchdown passes were to his old friend from the Patriots, Rob Gronkowski. The Buc’s defense was also outstanding, keeping the Chiefs’ high-powered offense from scoring a touchdown. Bruce Arians became the oldest head coach to win a Super Bowl at 68 years and 127 days. Overall, it was a very impressive performance by Tampa!

Some of the commercials also stood out as the best of the best. Here are the winners!

Repeated Star Power Award
Paramount+ “
Sweet Victory
Paramount+ had several famous characters ranging from actors, athletes and cartoons that represented programming to stream on the service coming out in March. Each commercial, seemed to get better and better. The best of the bunch was when the Paramount stars, including Snooki, James Corden, Beavis and Butthead, reach the summit of Paramount Mountain. They realize they are metaphors.

Patrick Stewart tells the group, “We live here now on Mount Paramount. Isn't it glorious here?”

He then tells the group to dance. Stephen Colbert, who is bartending, says, “Sure, let’s make it weirder.”

All the ad dollars spent by Paramount+, will surely create more awareness for its offering of live sports, breaking news and a “mountain” of entertainment.

My Daughter’s Pick
Sam Adams – “
After skiing earlier in the day, my family drove by a farm that had Clydesdales hanging out in the snow. I told my kids, “We’ll likely see them later in a commercial tonight.” Little did I know it would be Sam Adams that would starring these impressive animals.

My daughter is 11 years old, so she likes animals, not beer. But even at her age, she recognized a great advertisement. She laughed when the huge horses stampeded through a New England town, because “your cousin from Boston” pulled out the pin, setting them free.  The audience was expecting to see a Budweiser Clydesdale commercial just like so many lovable spots over the years. The main character says, “I did not see that coming.”  Neither did we.

Although this might have been a regional commercial, it will draw some attention to Sam Adams and its promotion of its Wicked Hazy IPA.
