The Most “WHOA” Worthy Moments of the Superbowl (That Had Nothing To Do With The Game)

February 02, 2015

If you watched the Super Bowl last night, you know that there were plenty of “!!!” moments, many of which actually had nothing to do with the game itself. If we’re being honest here, I tuned in more for the commercials and the halftime show than the game this year, and I wasn’t disappointed. A few of the most memorable moments from this year’s Super Bowl included:

  • Katy Perry’s halftime show: As soon as I heard that Katy Perry would be taking the stage during halftime, I knew we

    were in for a treat. She certainly didn’t disappoint, with her smiling sharks, dancing beachballs, and that robot lion. Special guests Lenny Kravitz and Missy Elliot made the show even better. It was definitely one of my favorite halftime performances.

  • Nationwide’s total buzzkill: While they won big time with their adorable spot featuring my beloved Mindy Kaling, Nationwide quickly delivered a huge buzzkill with this spot about dead children. Nothing causes a hush to fall over a Super Bowl party quite like a commercial about kids dying in accidents….thanks, guys. Let’s keep our day happy by rewatching Mindy in her charming, cheerful ad.

    • T-Mobile’s funny ads: From Kim Kardashian poking fun at herself to Chelsea Handler and Sarah Silverman playing “frenemies” trying to one-up each other, these commercials were some of my favorites.

  • The shoving match that occurred at the end: There were mere seconds left in the game. And a fight broke out. Childish? Definitely. Amusing? Also, yes.

What were some of your most memorable moments from this year’s Super Bowl? Share them with me!
