So many commercials, so little time.
Even if football and Maroon 5 aren't your thing, there's still a good chance you're interested in at least one aspect of Super Bowl Sunday: all the high-profile ads.
While it's a little weird to be excited about commercials, the Big Game spots are usually filled with celebrity cameos, memorable moments or, fingers crossed, the first footage from highly-anticipated films.
Though the New England Patriots won't face off against the Los Angeles Rams until Feb. 3, big brands are already dropping teasers for the spots that will air Super Bowl Sunday. And, based on what we've seen so far, consider our interests piqued.
Other clips released so far include Sarah Michelle Gellar for Olay, Kristin Chenoweth singing with puppies for Avocados from Mexico and Alex Rodriguez bonding with Mr. Peanut. However, our favorite teaser, which dropped Thursday, features Chance the Rapper getting dancing lessons from the Backstreet Boys for Doritos.
The Dude and Carrie Bradshaw Share a Beer
Can’t be living in the past, man. Stay tuned. pic.twitter.com/zL2CLYhGAM— Jeff Bridges (@TheJeffBridges) January 24, 2019
Bridges posted a clip Thursday morning featuring him back in character as The Dude from "The Big Lebowski." In the teaser, the actor walks into the frame, looks at the camera and laughs. "Can't be living in the past, man. Stay tuned," Bridges captioned the post.
We weren't sure at the time if the ad was actually for the Super Bowl, but the end of the clip teased that the full-length video will be arriving on Feb. 3, the day of the game.
On Monday morning, our assumptions were confirmed, when Stella Artois released a teaser for their Super Bowl ad, featuring Bridges as The Dude and Sarah Jessica Parker as her "Sex and the City" character Carrie Bradshaw. In the clip, Parker, as Carrie, walks into a bar and throws everyone off when she decides to order a Stella instead of a cosmopolitan.
A few seconds later, The Dude appears and orders the beer instead of his usual White Russian. He sits down at a table next to Carrie and she taps him on the shoulder. "Excuse me," she says to him. "Good choice."
"Well changing can do a little good," he replies.
Backstreet Boys and Chance the Rapper for Doritos
In the clip, the "No Problem" singer attempts to bust a move to the boy band's hit "I Want It That Way," but sadly gets criticized by the group.
"Terrible dude," AJ McLean says, before and Chance replies, "I think it's the pants."
"No excuses man!" Brian Littrell tells him, "Let's do it again."
The guys flawlessly perform their choreography in unison, but Chance flails his arms as if he were doing the chicken dance.
James Marsden Spoofs "Interstellar" for Taco Bell
Standing in for Matthew McConaughey, James Marsden must save Earth in an all-out spoof of 2014 sci-fi film "Interstellar." The catastrophe in this parody is taken to absurd heights as the world is plunged into chaos after nacho fries vanish.
In a plot that is never actually explained, Marsden's character must travel to deep space to save "deliciousness" for all humanity.
The official synopsis reads: "When Taco Bell’s Nacho Fries vanish, one man must go further than any man has gone before to bring them back. James Marsden is Dr. Conrad, a retired astronaut who has resigned himself to a normal life when he’s offered a chance to bring back Nacho Fries seasoned in Mexican spices that you dip in nacho cheese for all humanity."
Cardi B, Steve Carell and Lil Jon For Pepsi
A hip-hop diva, a comedian and a rapper are in a diner. Up until yesterday, that's about all we knew about how the Pepsi Super Bowl teasers featuring Cardi B, Steve Carell and Lil Jon were connected. On Monday, the beverage company released what could be the full-length commercial and it's absolutely hilarous.
In the commercial, a waiter asks a customer if "Pepsi is okay?" when they ordered a Coke. Carell pops up and yells at the waiter to let him and the customer know that Pepsi is more than okay. The actor needs help letting people know how awesome the soda is, so he points behind the counter and says, "Pepsi's more than okay, it's..." and Lil Jon appears and recites his famous line "Okay!" But Pepsi isn't just more than okay, it's okurrr! At least that's what Cardi B says when she makes an entrance in a Pepsi colored rhinestoned outfit.
"Okay, what have we learned today?" Carell ultimately asks and the customer replies, "I want a Pepsi."
However, the best part of the commercial comes at the end when Carell attempts to deliver Cardi B's catchphrase. To be honest, we have a feeling this will be one of the greatest TV spots to air. Check out the video above.
Kristin Chenoweth Sings with Dogs
In the Avocados from Mexico ad previews, the Tony winner teaches a group of dogs how to sing the brand's theme song correctly. While holding what looks like of avocado toast, Chenoweth instructs the pups how to hit the "high notes."
Sarah Michelle Gellar's Killer Skin
The "Buffy" star gets put in a real-life horror movie in beauty brand Olay's "Killer Skin" Super Bowl teasers. The clips show Gellar in her house as a masked intruder barges in. It seems like an odd way to promote skincare, but we're still here for anything that brings us back to those "I Know What You Did Last Summer" and "Scream 2" days.
Christina Applegate Gets Locked Out of Her Car
In the M&Ms Super Bowl teaser, Applegate walks out of a grocery store to find someone has locked her out of her car and she is not happy. Although we don't see who is inside the vehicle, we have a feeling it's some mischevious chocolate candies up to no good.
A-Rod Bonds with Mr. Peanut
The MLB star joins the famous top hat wearing mascot in a Planters commercial. In the preview clip, Rodriguez sits on a couch across from Mr. Peanut, as he attempts to catch a few nuts in his mouth. In the end, "Game Day's gonna get nutty" appears across the screen.
Michael C. Hall Gets Musical
Instead of a traditional Super Bowl ad, Skittles released a teaser announcing "Skittles Commercial: The Broadway Musical," which will actually be performed live in NYC the night of the game. There are only a couple tickets left for the 30-minute show, with proceeds being donated to Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.
"Dexter" star Michael C. Hall will front the show and, in the preview, appears a little nervous about it while speaking to a therapist.
Budweiser Clydesdales Are Back
Although there aren't any celebrities featured in this preview ad, we're just so excited that Budweiser is bringing back the Clydesdale horses. Aren't you?
