The Super Bowl wouldn’t be the Super Bowl without drama and controversy, and there was plenty of both in Sunday night’s big game. The San Francisco 49ers were up 20-10 halfway through the fourth quarter and appeared to be in control of the game. But by the time the 2-minute warning would arrive, the Kansas City Chiefs would have pulled ahead on their way to a 31-20 win. Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes struggled to poke holes in the 49ers defense through most of the game, throwing two interceptions on the way to a 20-10 deficit. Things started coming together in the second half though, when the effects of a huge missed opportunity and a big penalty late in the first half rippled through the rest of the game for the Niners. Mahomes would go on to turn things around in the later stages of the game, finishing 26-of-42 with 286 passing yards, 29 yards rushing, and two touchdown passes. That was good enough to make him the MVP of Super Bowl 54, and Andy Reid’s 222nd career win would be his first Super Bowl victory.
Of course, the Super Bowl also wouldn’t be the Super Bowl without a ton of great commercials, and Super Bowl 54 didn’t disappoint. A single spot with 30 seconds of ad time cost a whopping $5.6 million during the Super Bowl broadcast in 2020, so you had better believe the companies paying that astronomical sum would want to get the most bang as possible for their buck. Some did better than others and in this post, we’ll run through the top 10 best Super Bowl commercials of 2020.
Before we get to all the great commercials from Super Bowl 54, we should also note that the Super Bowl halftime show was also pretty epic. Just as there’s always some controversy during the big game, there’s also always controversy when the halftime show is announced ahead of the game every year. There’s no denying that Shakira & J. Lo totally crushed it during the Super Bowl halftime show in 2020 though, and you can watch the full performance right here:
With that out of the way, let’s get to the top 10 best commercials of Super Bowl 54. You’ll find them below in no particular order. Well, they’re almost in no particular order because there’s really no questions whatsoever which ad was the single best commercial of Super Bowl 54. That’s right, it’s Jeep’s brilliant Groundhog Day commercial starring none other than the legendary Bill Murray… and a groundhog.

Loretta | Google Super Bowl Commercial 2020
A man reminisces about the love of his life with a little help from Google.
See something in this story you want to try for yourself? Here are a few tips to get you started.
First you’ll need the Google Assistant. If you don’t already have it, you can learn more at https://assistant.google.com
00:12 “Show me photos of me and Loretta”
To use the Assistant to pull up photos, make sure you and your favorite people are tagged in your Google Photos. Then just say, “Hey Google, show me photos of me and [their name]”
00:21 “Remember, Loretta hated my mustache.”
To try this one, just say, “Hey Google, remember…” and then whatever you’d like the Assistant to help you recall later. Like “Hey Google, remember Dad’s shoe size is 8 and half” or “remember Maria loves lilies.” Then, to see everything you’ve asked the Assistant to remember, just say, “Hey Google, what did I tell you to remember?”
00:39 “Show me photos from our anniversary”
To see photos from a wedding, anniversary, birthday, or graduation, you’ll need a Google Photos account, and you’ll also need to tell your Assistant the specific date. Just say something like, “Hey Google, remember my anniversary is May 18th” or “remember Mark’s birthday is March 30th.” Then you can use that information in many ways, like “Hey Google, show me photos from our anniversary” or “Hey Google, remind me to buy flowers on Mark’s birthday.”
00:51 “Play our favorite movie.”
First, tell your Google Assistant what your favorite movie is by saying, “Hey Google, our favorite movie is Casablanca.” Once you’ve purchased your favorite movie on Google Play Movies or YouTube, all you have to say is, “Hey Google, play our favorite movie” and the movie will start playing.
