This year for the Super Bowl we had some amazing commercials from Tide, Marvel, Star Wars, and the NFL itself with a spoof on Dirty Dancing.

Tide had a string of commercials with Stranger Things star, David Harbour. He portrays Sheriff Hopper in the show and has some brilliant witty appearances in the commercials. Doing spoofs on old spice, car, and beer ads.

Marvel released another small teaser for the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War. New details show more on Captain America’s new shield, Vision’s human form, and new tech for certain avengers. Scarlet Witch is seen messing with the infinity stone. Could it be she’s drawing power from it or giving energy? After all her powers did come from the stone. Another new tech upgrade is Iron Man’s Bleeding Edge armor. This armor originated in the comics and is made up of Tony’s repulser technology, and controlled by his mind. We’ll have to see how this armor is made in the film universe.

The NFL had a spoof commercial on the film Dirty Dancing having a choreographed dance  with Eli Manning and Odell Beckham Jr. This all around hilarious commercial features the Giants all joining in the dance and at the end performing the classic “lift” move. This will be an unforgettable commercial for years.

Lastly is the long-awaited Solo: A Star Wars Story trailer. After The Last Jedi, fans are pretty bummed out about Star Wars and their expanding universe, so we will have to see how the reactions are.
