February 3rd is quickly approaching and we’re getting super excited. Not about the Super Bowl… but the commercials.
As the big day gets closer we’re learning more about which celebs we should expect to see hawking a variety of wares for Madison Avenue. And in some cases have already seen a few teaser commercials begin to leak. Everyone from Harrison Ford to Alex Rodriquez is on board. And recently a source confirmed to E! News that Cardi B filmed a Pepsi commercial, set to debut during the game.
It was revealed Monday that Sarah Jessica Parker and Jeff Bridges are bringing a couple of famed characters back to life for a charity in a new Super Bowl commercial.
Parker will reprise her “Sex and the City” Carrie Bradshaw role and Bridges will appear as “The Dude” in a Stella Artois commercial to raise money to combat water shortage. The 45-second ad launches Monday and will be televised during Super Bowl 53 on Feb. 3.
“There will be a lot of men drinking during the Super Bowl, so why not buy some beer that’ll do some good for the planet and the world,” Bridges said in an interview with The Associated Press before shooting the ad.
Parker starred as the fashionable Bradshaw on the hit television series “Sex in the City.” Bridges is known as the nonchalant, knit-sweater-wearing character Jeffrey “The Dude” from the cult classic film “The Big Lebowski.”
In the commercial, the two separately order the beer instead of their favorite drink and end up sitting next to each other. Bradshaw prefers a Cosmopolitan cocktail, while The Dude’s usual is a White Russian cocktail.
According to Sports Illustrated in 2018 advertisers shelled out more than $5 million for a 30-second spot. While exact figures for 2019 game are not yet known, it’s fair to estimate they’ll be in that same ballpark. Among the advertisers shelling out big for TV spots this year according to Ad Age are Pepsico, Anheuser-Busch, Audi, Bumble, Burger King, Kraft Heinz, Hyundai, Kia and Mercedes-Benz.
So without further ado here are some of the commercials we’ve seen thus far.
