Take it from someone who uses the Super Bowl as a bathroom break to get back to the main-event (commercials!): This year, the ads that were shown during the big game made history with their creative alternatives to live animals. Check out our five animal-friendly favorites:
- “Whale of a Tale,” Bridgestone: Three friends. One animatronic whale. Millions of happy viewers. Bridgestone also gets extra kudos from us for recently banning the use of endangered animals in all of its commercials!
- “Timothy Richman,” Cars.com: The pros of animatronic tiger cub birth: clean, cute, and pain-free. The cons of animatronic tiger cub birth? We can’t think of any.
- “Finding Beaver,” Monster.com: Leave it to this (CGI) beaver…to play the fiddle? Hoedown, here we come!
- “Squirrel,” Honda: Why can’t all hoarders be this sleek, adorable, and (faux) furry?
- “Underdog,” Doritos: We yelled “Holla!” when this taunted dog flipped the tables and put the shock collar on the man. Payback is simply delicious.
