Super Bowl Commercials 2019: These Will Get You Through the Actual Game

Though I attend a Super Bowl party almost every year, I've only been truly excited for the big game on two separate occasions: when Madonna played the halftime show in 2012 and when Lady Gaga did it in 2017. So aside from that, you can find me at any party for the big game nestled next to the snacks, waiting for the commercials.

Now, let's be clear: A funny Groupon spot starring Tiffany Haddish isn't the same thing as a Beyoncé, Gaga, or Katy Perry halftime show, but it does make the whole experience of sitting through an event you're half-heartedly into a little more fun. For the years when the musical guest is less than thrilling—cough, like this year, cough—or the lineup is a dud—again, cough, this year—I turn to the best Super Bowl commercials for salvation. When the carbs run out, at least I'll have a glitzy Pepsi ad as a talking point.

And the Super Bowl commercials this year are shaping up to be some of the funniest and most entertaining ever. Just a few highlights: Cardi B drinks a Pepsi, Christina Applegate gets locked out of her car, Serena Williams cashes that paycheck from Bumble. We'll be updating this post until the big game with the best campaigns—and the ones featuring your favorite celebrities—so check back. Until then, here are our favorite commercials (and commercial previews) that we know about so far.

Who is locking Christina Applegate out of her car? My money is on the green M&M. She lives for the drama.

Lil' Jon, Cardi B, and Steve Carell are all featured in separate spots advertising Pepsi's Super Bowl commercial. So will there be three separate ads? Are they joining forces? Either way, I'm in desperate need of Cardi's diamond Pepsi can.

Serena Williams will star in Bumble's first-ever Super Bowl spot, which is themed “The Ball Is in Her Court,” empowering women to make the first move in their relationships.

Budweiser is now brewed with wind power, so, naturally, this commercial features a dog's face blowing in the wind. So cute! So eco-friendly! I think I want to drink beer now?
