Drake, Reynolds and Mirren among celebs in Super Bowl commercials

Christine Chubb | posted Friday, Feb 5th, 2016

It’s cliche to say, but the commercials really are the best thing about the Super Bowl.

This year some of the biggest celebrities on the planet are headed to the small screen for these multi-million dollar ads.

Some have messages, some are funny and some … we’ll let you decide.

Helen Mirren – Budweiser

Oscar winning actress and all around bad-ass Helen Mirren uses 60 seconds of Budweiser’s time not just to promote the product but to offer up a no holds barred PSA against drinking and driving.

Titled ‘Simply Put’, Mirren unleashes a tongue lashing, calling those who still drink a drive, among other things, ‘a human form of pollution,’ while sitting at a low-lit leather booth in front of a cheeseburger.

Ryan Reynolds – Hyundai

Ryan Reynolds stars in every woman’s fantasy – a town filled with dozens of Ryan Reynolds. Complete with Salt-N-Pepa’s ‘What A Man,” this dream come true is courtesy of the 2017 Hyundai Elantra.

The Vancouver native, who is currently promoting the upcoming film ‘Deadpool’ described it on Twitter as “Of all the roles I’ve played, this was the most…. roles”

Welcome to ‘Ryanville.’

Drake – T-Mobile

Toronto rap superstar Drake pokes fun at corporate suits in a commercial for T-Mobile titled ‘Restricted Bling.’

The former ‘Degrassi: The Next Generation’ star dusted off his acting chops while smiling politely at companies attempting to insert sales pitches into songs without considering artistic message.

And you thought 2016 was the year you were going to get ‘Hotline Bling’ out of your head.

And while the big names may get all the attention, the real winner of the Super Bowl 2016 commercial battle may just be Heinz Ketchup with its absolutely adorable ad ‘Wiener Stampede.’
