14th Superbowl ads Content

Employer Branding Touchdowns

In a clash of titans, the Kansas City Chiefs squared off against the San Francisco 49ers in an electrifying Super Bowl LVIII showdown. The Chiefs clinched victory for the second consecutive year, marking their third win in just five years. However, the spotlight also shone on the sidelines, where pop sensation Taylor Swift and her boyfriend, Travis Kelce, Tight End for the Chiefs, captured the media's attention with their captivating ‘Love Story’. As the halftime show unfolded, Usher dazzled the audience with his performance, accompanied by an array of special guests.

Beyond the halftime spectacle, it was the ad breaks that truly stole the spotlight (as always). With a staggering $7million (£5.1million) price tag for a mere 30-second ad slot, the pressure was on for advertisers to deliver nothing short of excellence. Join us as we delve into the realm of Super Bowl LVIII's most remarkable ads, dissecting the creativity, humour and emotion that captivated millions of viewers worldwide.

Here’s a few of our faves:

Uber Eats:

    Uber Eats nailed it with their Super Bowl ad! Seeing Jennifer Aniston and David Schwimmer back together, along with other celebs like Jelly Roll and the Beckhams, was a real treat. And the tagline, "Whatever you forget, Remember Uber Eats," perfectly captures their service of delivering food right when you need it. It was clever, entertaining, and just what you'd want in a Super Bowl ad.


    Featuring Mr. T from The A-Team, they cleverly tackled the common misspellings of their brand name. It was relatable, funny and did a great job showcasing their products. Skechers really hit the mark by playing on that smart insight about brand name misspellings.


    Making its Super Bowl debut, Snapchat delivers a powerful message with its 'Less Likes. More Love.' advert. It hit home in today's world of social media competition. By focusing on genuine connections and authenticity, Snapchat stood out from the crowd. They highlighted their unique features like privacy and personal messaging, showing their dedication to meaningful interactions. It was a timely reminder that resonated with audiences and positioned Snapchat as a breath of fresh air in the social media scene.
