Super Bowl ads: 1st quarter features babies, bears and Jeff Goldblum – Los Angeles Times

While you were checking on the hot wings, here were the best of the big budget ads in the first quarter of Super Bowl 50.

If you had a prop bet that Michelob Ultra would have the first commercial after kickoff, you can call your bookie and collect.

Willem Dafoe’s Snickers-induced transformation into Marilyn Monroe may have pushed the limits of Snickers’ “you’re not you when you’re hungry” campaign, which has become a Super Bowl favorite over the year. But fans of Turner Classic Movies will love it.

Based on the previews of the ads, Super Bowl 50 is going to feel like a classic rock festival by the end of the night. But it’s hard not to feel uplifted by the use of the late David Bowie’s “Starman” from “The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust” in the Audi commercial about a retired astronaut called Commander. It already has close to 5 million views on YouTube.
