Let’s Talk Super Bowl Ads At The Bruno Mars Concert

Standard

Unless you live under a rock, you were one of the 111.5 million people who watched the Super Bowl on Sunday. I prefer to refer to it as the Bruno Mars concert with lots of ads because let’s be real, 1) I didn’t care about either team and 2) Bruno Mars DUH.

Bruno put on an amazing show, I actually had to rewatch the entire thing yesterday just to fully appreciate it. Only thing I was confused about was why Red Hot Chili Peppers showed up at all. I mean I love them – but why?

(I was going to put the video here of Bruno singing/dancing his face off but it seems they have all been blocked on Youtube and the network hasn’t released the official one yet. ANNOYING.)

The other half of the Super Bowl Bruno Mars concert were the ads. This year I personally though they were lack luster but here were my top 9 favorites.

9. Dorito’s Time Machine (Hilarious child who will go far in life.)

8.  Ellen for Beats Music. (It’s ELLEN and she’s DANCING. What is not to love.)

7. British Villans for Jaguar (TOM HIDDLESTON OBVIOUSLY THE HIGHLIGHT)

6. Cheerios Family (Cheerios family is back and better than ever.)

5. The 80s Called for Radio Shack (Amazing concept.)

4. A Hero’s Welcome for Budweiser (Very long, but tear worthy.)

3. America Is Beautiful for Coca-Cola (This is a HUGE step for America and all of our cultures. VERY IMPORTANT.)

2. Anna Kendrick for Newcastle Beer (I don’t even think this aired during the Super Bowl but it’s hilarious and genius.)

1. Puppy Love for Budweiser (If you don’t cry during this, you don’t have a soul)

My Super Bowl Halftime Wrap Up: Queen Bey Has Returned

Standard
THE QUEEN.

THE QUEEN.

Okay. I think I have finally recovered enough to talk about Beyonce’s halftime show. On Sunday when it aired I was in hysterics screaming FLAWLESS every five seconds. Later that night I rewatched the performance another 2 times. Then Monday I tried to get a grip but watched the performance another 7 times.

Actually let’s be honest I’m still not over it. I MEAN COME ON SHE’S THE QUEEN AND SHE HAS FINALLY RETURNED. I’m going to try to somewhat (but not really) contain myself and do a live word vomit breakdown of her performance because it was that incredible. It’s kind of long but I regret nothing.

  • She kicks it off with a giant light cutout of herself. SASHA FIERCE IS IN THE ARENA.
  • Then she starts with Countdown (edit: it’s actually Love On Top. I was freaking out so much I didn’t even notice I typed it wrong) and her vocals are FLAWLESS.
  • We have the infamous Queen Bey strut and BOOM CRAZY IN LOVE (my all time fave.)
  • HAIR FLIP. FLAWLESS.
  • Every woman will now take yoga to be able to kick like that. Bless you Beyonce.
  • Her bitches backup dancers have arrived.
  • I would have given my first born for that jacket she threw into the crowd.
  • THOSE LACE SHORTS ARE MY EVERYTHING.
  • That guitar. I mean can you be anymore badass. The guitar player is like “only for you my Queen.”
  • OH MY GOD THE FINGER LICK. EVERYONE IS DECEASED.
  • Mental note: I really need to work on my hair flip. 
  • “Let’s work” said Beyonce on the 8th day of creation. As so it was. And so it shall be.
  • OH MY GOD TILL THE END OF TIME. YES QUEEN BEY.
  • No one would ever let Bey go let’s be real.
  • SO. MANY. BEYONCES. IS THIS REAL LIFE.
  • Baby Boy Beyonce you’ve been on my mind.
  • The fact that she does all of these hair flips in heels should garner it’s own award. Someone make that happen. The trophy can be a golden weave.
  • OH SHIT KELLY AND MICHELLE. CAN YOU HANDLE THIS.
  • It’s my life dream for Beyonce to call out “SARAH, CAN YOU HANDLE THIS?” 
  • BOOTYLICIOUS.
  • Their harmonies I am CRYING. SO BEAUTIFUL. THE TRIFECTA.
  • INDEPENDENT WOMEN THROW YOUR HANDS UP IN THE AIR.
  • Michelle looks slightly uncomfortable. As anyone would when trying to perform alongside the Queen.
  • CHARLIE’S ANGELS REFERENCE I AM SO DONE.
  • Single Ladies. THE QUEEN IN HER ELEMENT.
  • I wonder how long it took Kelly and Michelle to learn the choreo for Single Ladies. (Actually Michelle probably fangirled when it originally came out let’s be honest.)
  • GOD QUEEN BEY’S SOLO DANCING I CANNOT BREATHE. FLAWLESS. She doesn’t even need her backup she’s like “MOVE I GOT THIS.”
  • Holy shit she’s totally solo for Halo. Shit is getting REAL.
  • THOSE PEOPLE WHO GOT TO TOUCH THE QUEENS HAIR AND HOLD HER HAND YOU BETTER NEVER WASH. YOU HAVE BEEN BLESSED.
  • HER VOCALS. You get it Queen Bey. YOU GET IT AND SHOW THEM ALL.
  • Literally crying at the vocals at this point. Actual tears I kid you not.
  • “Thank you for this moment” no Queen Bey, thank you for returning and bestowing a new era upon us.

Final thoughts: 1) Someone should make a workout class based solely on this choreography. I’m convinced you would burn 2000 calories. 2) Everyone else needs to step the f*** down from the throne because the Queen is back. 3) Beyonce is everything.
