Read on for seven of the best (notoriously expensive) commercials that aired during the Super Bowl.

What better joy is there than a Paul Rudd-Seth Rogen buddy comedy? How about a Paul Rudd-Seth Rogen buddy comedy with a one minute runtime? Pulling hard on nostalgic heart strings, Lay’s finds the sweet spot between familiarity and laughability.
So this one is technically a proper movie trailer, but it’s a big-deal commercial, nevertheless! It’s been over five years since Doctor Strange hit theaters and this two minute-and-sixteen-seconds trailer is full of rich insight into what will be in store for Marvel fans come May 6.
