If you’re one of those Super Bowl spectators who only sit through the game to watch the commercials, there were a few memorable TV spots Sunday (Feb. 7) peddling everything from electric luxury vehicles to organic seltzer. There were also a handful of Latino celebrities that made appearances during the big-game advertisements. Did you catch them all? Here’s a quick rundown.
Cardi B-Uber Eats
The “WAP”-performer joined Wayne’s World characters Wayne (Mike Myers) and Garth (Dana Carvey) on their cable access show to “party on” and encourage people to eat local food. “We’d never shamelessly rely on a celebrity cameo,” Wayne says right before Cardi B shows up. “Yeah, eat local!” she says. Then, the three stars start recording TikTok videos and dressing like one another. We’re not sure Cardi’s going to sport flannel shirts in any of her new music videos, but Garth’s dark-framed glasses were a good look on her.
Labeled “comfort enthusiasts,” the former Dallas Cowboys quarterback and his wife Candice took things “to the max,” including driving a monster truck to work and making 3-foot-tall sandwiches. “Honey, get my stretch pants,” the Mexican American athlete says. The point of the commercial was to tell viewers that Sketchers had “maxed out the cushioning” in its shoes for extra comfort.
Dora the Explorer, Desi Arnaz & Snooki-Paramount+
The new streaming service premiering March 4 brought all the stars who will be featured on its platform, including animated adventurer Dora the Explorer, I Love Lucy star Desi Arnaz and Jersey Shore reality star Snooki. During the commercial, stars like Dora, Desi, Snooki, Late Show host Stephen Colbert and Beavis and Butthead climbed to the top of the Paramount “mountain of entertainment.” Snooki asks: “What are we supposed to do up here?” Actor Patrick Stewart answers: “We dance.”
Gael Garcia Bernal-'Old'
The trailer for Oscar-nominated director M. Night Shyamalan’s (The Sixth Sense) new horror film Old features Bernal taking his family to a remote beach where bizarre things start to happen. Bizarre things happen when Bernal goes to the beach in Y tu mama tambien, too, but Old has a bit more of a Twilight Zone feel to it. Shyamalan seems to be playing with the concept of time.
The upcoming Fast and Furious sequel features Michelle Rodriguez reprising her role as street racer Letty Ortiz. In the trailer, she’s hanging out with her toddler but is soon revving up a motorcycle. Later, she smashes someone into a tree when they try to jump on the back of her ride.
Maluma-Michelob ULTRA Organic Seltzer
Well, it wasn’t actually the Colombian reggaeton singer who was featured in the commercial, but a doppelgänger instead. The beer brand hired a bunch of lookalikes to make up their “all-star” cast, including clones for Megan Fox, Sylvester Stallone and Don Cheadle. When fake Maluma is exposed, he’s brushed off by his backup dancers.
Adrian Martinez-State Farm
Character actor Adrian Martinez (Cop Out) wore a Green Bay Packers cheesehead hat to play a stand-in for Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers. “You couldn’t find a stand-in that looked anything like me?” Rodgers asks. Other celebrity doubles were actor Paul Rudd (Ant-man) standing in for Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes and Drake standing in for the character “Jake from State Farm.”
