Superbowl LI was filled with many different types of commercials.

Besides being a historical football game, Superbowl LI was one with a variety of commercials that both impressed its viewers and left others wondering what they were watching. Some sentimental, some quirky and some just huge let downs, these ads will go down in history just like the game itself. Many commercials had familiar faces in them and others caught the viewers attention because of their content. With this being said, these commercials have a lot more to offer than meets the eye.

Audi: ‘Daughter’
This commercial is not only about winning a race, it’s also about equality.

Our Rating: A

In this commercial, a father watches his daughter win a soapbox derby race and explains that his daughter should not believe women are beneath men. Audi endorses their commitment to equal pay for equal work. This ad not only shows an Audi’s abilities but also shares the views of the company after recent events like the “Women’s March”. Equality issues have become more prevalent in day-to-day life so this commercial really made viewers think about equal pay for both men and women and why it should be corrected in the modern world.

Persil, ‘The Science of Clean: 10 Dimensions’
Bill Nye making a come-back onto television.

Our Rating: D-

Although this was not one of the better commercials, it was still notable in that it featured an appearance from Bill Nye the Science Guy. Usually known for being an intelligent and funny T.V. personality, here Nye was actually perplexed when it came to science. Has that ever really happened? Is he really still Bill Nye the Science Guy? This commercial was not only a let down for Bill Nye fans but also left viewers wondering why they made him seem like he couldn’t figure out what he was talking about.

Logan: ‘Grace’
Wolverine will finally return to the big screen with a side kick.

Our Rating: B

Although this was not the only trailer to air on Superbowl Sunday, this commercial left a mark on anyone who watched it. This was by far the most action-packed commercial to air during commercial breaks. Not only is this an action movie but, it also shares insight on the father-daughter duo and how Wolverine’s daughter learns to handle her powers. As this maybe Hugh Jackman’s last time on the big screen as Wolverine, this commercial makes him seem like he’s coming all claws in.

“Just by watching this commercial, it sparked my interest because of how much action was packed in 30 seconds. I think once it comes out in theaters I will go watch it with my sisters,” junior Deborah Zagales said.

Overall, the commercials that aired during this year’s Superbowl left many in awe. Many of the commercials mentioned issues that are currently being handled in the United States making them hit closer to home. If a commercial did not provide a moral message then it gave the viewers’ a good laugh.
