The best Super Bowl 2022 commercials

Super Bowls get the best TV ads. It’s just a fact that advertisers put more time and effort into their Super Bowl commercials because they know that this is the television event of the year, one of the last remaining broadcast programs that can attract around 100 million people at the same time. It transcends even the sport of football itself since people love to watch for the ads alone. So the pressure is always on to come up with something funny and memorable that also makes viewers want to buy the product. That’s never an easy trick to pull off, but there were definitely some worthy additions this year. And now, you can find them all in one place within our roundup of the best Super Bowl 2022 commercials.

Evil Is Back For Good

EVil Is Back For Good | #EVerybodyIn

Austin Powers’ greatest villains are back in General Motors’ newest Super Bowl ad. Dr. Evil (Mike Myers) refuses to be the second-most dangerous threat to the world. That’s because Number 2 (Rob Lowe), Frau Farbissina (Mindy Sterling), and Scott Evil (Seth Green) have convinced him that the world needs to be saved from emissions before he can take it over. It’s goofy, but the cast seamlessly slips right back into their characters after nearly 20 years away.

This may be a car commercial, but it did a better job of selling us on a Robo Dog than it did on making us want an all-electric Kia EV6. Poor Robo Dog just wants a home and someone to love. Plus, it’s hard to argue with a heart-warming happy ending.

10 Best Oscar shows ever, ranked
A man holds a sign up at the Oscars.

After nine decades, the Oscars, also known as the Academy Awards, remains the most prestigious show in the film community. It's the Super Bowl for movies as Hollywood's best and brightest stars meet under one roof to celebrate the year in film. Winning an Oscar, or even being nominated for an Oscar, can change someone's career overnight.

Because the ceremony is live, anything can happen. Sometimes, a heartwarming speech like Bong Joon-ho's in 2020 goes viral for all the right reasons. In other cases, like the 2022 Oscars, a slap by the eventual winner for Best Actor becomes one of the most talked about moments in the show's history for all the wrong reasons.

For the better part of three decades, Mario hasn't headlined any Hollywood films or TV shows. And trust us when we say that the 1993 Super Mario Bros. movie really was bad enough to scare Nintendo away. But this is one Italian plumber who doesn't need a movie to be a superstar.

All the Scream horror movies, ranked from worst to best
A masked person walks towards the camera in Scream VI.

Early reviews for Scream VI are lauding it as a new peak for the veteran franchise and the best entry since the game-changing 1996 original. Coming from the one-of-a-kind mind of the late great Wes Craven, Scream is the rare franchise that never runs out of steam. Thanks to a premise designed to reinvent itself with each new entry, Scream is the gift that keeps on giving, to the point where it wouldn't be an overstatement to say every chapter in the series is among the all-time best horror movies.

While every entry in the series ranges from "good" to "great," we can still rank them from worst to best. No fan's ranking will look the same; some might be OG Scream purists, while others will insist 2022's Scream is the new blueprint. However, we can all admit there are no weak entries in this franchise, with each film adding something to Ghostface's lore while cementing Scream as a cinematic horror institution.
