Super Bowl ads were never known for their strict portrayals of reality. Anyone who recalls Danny DeVito as an M&M (2018), the E-Trade babies buying stocks from their high chairs (2008) or the unnerving hybrid creature known as PuppyMonkeyBaby (Mountain Dew, 2016) can attest to this.
At first glance, then, the crop of ads released in advance of Super Bowl 55 this Sunday feels refreshingly normal. They’re full of backyards, family kitchens and lots of celebrity faces.
