I guess the years do start coming and they don’t stop coming. Super Bowl LV is upon us, and rewatching past commercials, it is easy to forget a bunch of them. Here are 55 forgotten Super Bowl commercials:

1.

The Force is strong with this one and his parents’ new Volkswagen.


Volkswagen

The little look to the camera at the end… Vader has never been so adorable. And no, Jake Lloyd as Anakin before he turns to the dark side does not count.

2.

This young man is on top of the world after his graduation present.


Chevy

I mean…it’s a nice fridge at least, right?

3.

Walmart’s parking lot is filled with nostalgia.


Walmart

This was last year, and I literally already forgot it was a Super Bowl commercial.

4.

This 2012 party got weird fast thanks to the Red M&M.


MM

I guess you need to imagine he is stripping off his clothes; otherwise, he is literally tearing his skin off.

5.

This man fell for the ol’ time machine gag.


Doritos

One of the best commercials in 2014. Doritos always banks on comedy, and this one paid off.

“It’s the future!”

6.

Coke tries to hit you in the feels with this brotherly love commercial.


Coca-Cola

I honestly have no memory of this one, but it was cute.

7.

Celebrities fill in for Alexa, and it goes as expected.


Amazon

From Cardi B to Anthony Hopkins, this Amazon commercial really stood out.

8.

The NFL flexes their popularity among pop culture.


NFL

The dark horse of every Super Bowl is the NFL commercials. They always come up with something creative, and the “NFL 100” commercial might be the best ever.

9.

Bridgestone’s 2011 commercial explains why I am always terrified to hit the “Reply All” button in an email.


Bridgestone

This might have been a slight overreaction though. I would’ve played it off as a joke. “I meant to send it.”

10.

Troy Polamalu sees his shadow in one of the weirder commercials in Super Bowl history.


truTV

It might be for the best that this video is mediocre quality because I don’t want to see this abomination in 4K.

11.

Betty White becomes a legend…again…in this Snickers ad.


SNICKERS

One of the more classic ones on here, but I seriously forgot it was a Super Bowl commercial.

I think Betty, as a receiver, would be better out in the flat. Sending her into the middle of the field was a bad call and the quarterback set her up for failure. I’d still draft the Golden Girl for my fantasy team.

12.

This 2008 Doritos ad really sets the tone for the weirdness of Doritos Super Bowl commercials.


Doritos

Doritos commercials always feel like a fever dream.

13.

Stewie Griffin and Underdog face off in a hilarious Thanksgiving parade battle. This Coca-Cola ad has one of my favorite endings ever.


Coca-Cola

As a guy who hates Thanksgiving, I always did like the parade, so this is quite the nostalgia trip.

Plus, Chuck finally wins in the end!

14.

Don’t trust hitchhikers, even if they have a pack of Bud Light.


Bud Light

One of my favorites. The epilogue at the end makes it for me, and the terror in the voice of the ax-wielding hitchhiker.

“And a chainsaw!”

15.

That time in 2007 when Bud Light wanted people to replace the fist bump with a slap across the face.


Bud Light

Not all of these are winners. Creative writing though, am I right?

Sometimes you just gotta try stuff…and pay millions of dollars for a TV spot.

16.

Doritos tried to give us the GOAT of Super Bowl commercials, bahhh-ut at what cost?


Doritos

Anything comedically surreal gets me, and this cutie is no different. Also, the goat is nice.

17.

This Hyundai kid assembles the “Dream Team” of kids football.


Hyundai

The tone of this is hilarious. When I saw it again for the first time in years, I would not have remembered it was a Hyundai commercial.

18.

Budweiser crabs worship their new god.


Budweiser

I would make a joke here, but it would be a crabby thing to do.

19.

Bud Light got creative in 2007 by having the perfect man on the job for this wedding.


Bud Light

Bud Light and Doritos really hammer the comedy commercials every year. Be sure to comment on which you prefer.

20.

What’s better than this? Lions being dudes…as they discuss the new Steak Grilled Taquitos at Taco Bell.


Taco Bell

Underrated line:

“Do you smell that?”

“Yeah: campers. I like the guy on the right.”

21.

I would 100% jump out of this plane; not for the Bud Light, but for who dived after it.


Bud Light

The heavy footsteps and lack of parachute kill me every time (even as I type this).

22.

Ameriquest reminds everyone not to judge too quickly.


Ameriquest

I feel terrible for laughing but forgetting about these Ameriquest “Don’t Judge Too Quickly” ads.

23.

Someone at Audi watched The Godfather before making this 2008 ad.


Audi

Best movie ever? Maybe.

Best commercial ever? Meh.

24.

I’m pretty sure that is the “Pit of Misery. Dilly! Dilly!” guy in this Tide “talking stain” ad.


Tide

Probably the best Tide ad ever made.

25.

The GOAT Missy Elliott appears in this Doritos/Mountain Dew hybrid commercial…and Peter Dinklage, Morgan Freeman, and Busta Rhymes are also present.


Doritos / Mountain Dew

Who won this lip sync battle?

26.

Danny McBride and Australia Tourism tricked people for a few weeks into believing they were remaking Crocodile Dundee.


Australia Tourism

I fell for this one pretty hard and never got the original movies, so thought it would be a hilarious parody.

27.

Skittles makes things weird and romances the rainbow.


Skittles

My mom discovered Skittles in recent years, and apparently, it surprises people that they are so good.

28.

Gronk’s Cleaners looks like a bizarre primetime show on CBS.


Tide

By the way, Gronk will be playing in Super Bowl LV.

29.

Dirty dancing between two Giants.


NFL

I appreciate these two for really finding a way to commit to their characters.

30.

Danny DeVito + Red M&M = Gold


MM

I prefer Danny to the real CGI M&M.

31.

Esurance wants you to say their name.


Esurance

Never watched an episode of Breaking Bad and still found this hilarious. That’s proof of how big this show was at the time.

32.

Danny Trejo is not messing around with this bunch.


SNICKERS

Sprinkle in a little Steve Buscemi and it makes everything better.

33.

Mindy isn’t invisible, even if she thinks she is.


Nationwide

I have no memory of this commercial. Never been a big “oh look, celebrities!” kind of guy, but they can still be funny.

34.

Dads just have that weird sixth sense. Oh, by the way, this is a car commercial.


Hyundai

Mental note for a future quiz: “Do you even know what this classic commercial is for?”

35.

Taco Bell has these older individuals living life to the fullest.


Taco Bell

No memory of this one but a cute concept. No offense to the Bell, but I don’t know if that is my go-to for a night on the town.

36.

Well…this escalated quickly.


Oreo

How to eat an Oreo? Ketchup on a hotdog? Pineapple on pizza?

All those questions show how dysfunctional we are as a society. Just “do you,” people. Put ketchup on an Oreo. I don’t care.

37.

This Volkswagen commercial has a lot of twists and the death sentence on 12 systems.


Volkswagen

I love Star Wars, but this was really out of left field.

38.

Little dog…little shoes. Little dog…little shoes.


Sketchers

Pets are always the safe bet for a Super Bowl commercial; because even if it sucks, who can hate that face?

39.

End of the world has frogs, Twinkies, and cars.


Chevy

I feel like this is where I pop out of your computer and go, “Ha, this wasn’t really a Super Bowl commercial.”

Seriously, does anybody remember this one?

40.

Yikes. Doritos can be a little too dark.


Doritos

Apparently, cat murder was very popular among the test groups.

41.

Here’s a weird one:


Doritos

I remember younger me thought this was McLovin. I wasn’t the brightest kid and for full context, I was, like, 17.

42.

The punchline for this 2006 Bud Light commercial got me, and I feel bad about it because it is so silly.


Bud Light

The worship circle sent me over.

43.

I don’t know if I’d call out an alien coworker, because Jenkins looks like he would eat you alive. But, hey, we should use FedEx! -nervous laugh-


FedEx

The xenomorph is still better, but can it make phone calls like Jenkins?

44.

The Castaway ending we all deserved. One of the first Super Bowl commercials I remember as a kid.


youtube.com

Just open the package, Tom Hanks!

45.

There are so many Budweiser Clydesdale commercials, I forgot about the zebra one. My kind of comedy.


Budweiser

It looked like the Clydesdale was in bounds to me, but I am unsure if he needs two hooves in or four.

46.

Hey, kids, remember those VHS players called the “VCRs”? No, well, this Levi’s flyweight jeans commercial is quite the timestamp.


Levis

My arms move like this guy’s legs when I walk.

47.

In honor of the late, great Hank Aaron, this commercial is a forgotten gem. For non-baseball fans, Barry Bonds was on his way to breaking Hank Aaron’s home run record.


Charles Schwab

Topical comedy at its finest, and still aged well.

48.

Loving Battlebots growing up, this commercial got a big laugh from little Jeremy. Now, it has that lovely early-2000s CGI.


Bud Light

Toro was my favorite growing up, and the reboot on Discovery has only improved the show.

49.

I feel like the further back in time I go, the more I am slipping into a state of confusion I cannot describe. Anyway, here is a singing dog sock puppet.


Pets.com

I am losing all connection with the world around me. Send for help.

50.

A classic I totally forgot about: the beautiful art of cat herding.


EDS / HP Company

Who doesn’t love cats? Not the movie though: Cats gave me nightmares.

51.

Rediscovering this commercial, it may be my favorite of all time. If you want a break from comedic, here is the one you should watch. Truly well done.


Toyota

The odds countdown at the bottom of the screen really makes this a grand slam.

52.

A wife fantasizing about a sexy Mr. Clean, like how every man and woman do. Right?


Mr. Clean

I do like the ending to the commercial.

53.

LeBron James really wants you to drink a Sprite, but he won’t tell you to drink it.


Sprite

I loved Sprite when I was a kid. What happened, Sprite? What happened, adult taste buds?

54.

H&R Block puts John Hamm in a very interesting conversation.


H&R Block

55.

“What is internet?” BMW had a great callback with Katie Couric and Bryant Gumbel.


BMW

Like most of these commercials, I simply forgot this was a Super Bowl ad because they played it so often for months.

Which of these did you like the most? Were there any you totally forgot existed or maybe haven’t even seen? Am I asking too many questions?
