All the while, TT, aka Tedra Wilson, sings about W2s and CPAs. Used car retailer, and, yes, another first-time Super Bowl advertiser, Vroom is using its airtime on the big game to show just how painful it says buying from a car dealership is. The 30-second spot was made with ad agency Anomaly and wants to show the benefits of “contact-free” at-home car delivery. Squarespace’s new spot features Dolly Parton’s re-recording of “9 to 5” as “5 to 9,” painting those hours as a time for side hustles. The spot was done by Squarespace’s in-house creative team. Skechers will run a spot this year with Tony and Candice Romo to promote the brand’s Skechers Max Cushioning line. The spot, which the brand did in-house creative for, will air in the second quarter.
Leslie Mann worked with LG Appliances in 2014 for a series of ads titled, “Mom Confessions.” In these spots, she served as the voice of a mother who has a few thoughts about being an adult and parent. Aaron Paul was a huge fan of living on the edge as Jesse Pinkman in “Breaking Bad.” Few people now, though, that he also did voiceover work for Mazda’s “Driving Matters” ad campaigns in 2016. You simply can’t have a great voiceovers list without mentioning Morgan Freeman. This Oscar winner lent his hypnotic voice to a series of Visa commercials that aired from 2008 to 2018. Some people have voices that are made for voiceover work. You can listen to them talk about products as unglamorous as toilet paper, and somehow, it sounds so much cooler. Intuit’s mission is to power prosperity around the world.
He also served as the narrator for movies like War of the Worlds and March of the Penguins and worked with other brands like Mountain Dew. There’s something distinct and comforting about Freeman’s drawling tone. They make you turn your heads, stop what you’re doing, and pay attention – everything you want from a good TV commercial. With seven total films – five in English and two in Spanish, the integrated campaign will span broadcast, digital and social and culminate with a spot in the NFL Super Bowl. Its rating system also gave high marks to Amazon’s Alexa ad and M&M’s spot featuring actor Dan Levy. But overall, this year’s crop of ads wasn’t particularly distinctive, relying on “safe ads with light humor,” according to Kellogg School business professor Tim Calkins. “But it was good to see some brands aim for more empowering messages. Still, we didn’t see any major breakthroughs or ads that we’ll be talking about for years to come,” he added.
Pampers is currently the #1 diaper brand in the world, with over $10 billion in annual sales. Margulies, meanwhile, is an actress you know only if you watch any of her shows. She’s not overly flashy on the red carpet or in your face at awards events, and it’s this humility that makes her an approachable voice for Pampers. Julianna Margulies is the proud mom of a beautiful baby boy.
In 2013, Clooney started his own tequila company called Casamigos. Freeman was paid between $1 million and $2 million for being the voice of Visa, and even still, that hasn’t been his only foray into voiceover work.

Sandwich chain Jimmy John’s will make its Super Bowl debut with a 30-second ad called “Meet the King.” Along with the new ad, the company is doing its first brand identity and logo change since founding, and introducing chicken to its menu for the first time. Dexcom, which makes glucose monitoring products, will air an ad featuring Nick Jonas, who has Type 1 diabetes. The company’s first big game ad “calls for better care for people with diabetes who are still painfully pricking their fingers to measure their glucose levels,” the company says. Though the game is about two weeks away, some companies have already started releasing their commercials for the biggest TV event of the year. It’s an even bigger event this year, since so many 2020 events were canceled, postponed or downsized. The brands advertising on the CBS broadcast will include Vroom, Toyota, Procter & Gamble’s Tide, M&Ms, PepsiCo’s Cheetos and Doritos, Fiverr, Kellogg’s Pringles and Intuit’s TurboTax.
Super Bowl Commercials: Winners And Losers From The Big Game
A lot has changed for both Goodman and Dunkin’ Donuts since their early collaboration. Goodman is returning as Sully in the new Monsters Inc. spinoff show on Disney+ and starring in the sitcom “The Coopers.” Meanwhile, Dunkin’ Donuts is now just Dunkin’ and has been steadily growing with quirky branded merchandise and over $23 million in revenue. Still, those early days for the actor and brand were hugely successful and established both as sweet and approachable.

Mars Wrigley brand M&M’s will run an ad with actor Dan Levy in the first quarter. The company says the spot “features a variety of relatable ‘wow, I really shouldn’t have done that’ scenarios and the people in them choosing to make it better with a bag of M&M’s.” The ad, called “Come Together,” was done with BBDO New York. In the campaign, our experts roll across the country, providing people from all over with tax expertise and answering unique filing questions.

To be sure, the business school rankings are scored differently than popular opinion, given that the Kellogg School is rating the ads on how effectively they support a brand or its message. Among the ads that scored well with consumers were Rocket Mortgage’s spots with actor Tracy Morgan, according to USA Today’s Ad Meter. The brands that did run ads mostly opted for light humor, avoiding mention of the pandemic or other other crises.
