Let's face it. Most of us only tune into the Super Bowl for the halftime show and the ridiculously expensive commercials — and this year neither disappointed. Before and after Justin Timberlake's performance, more celebrities than we can count filled up the airwaves, selling everything from Tide to Doritos. However, in our opinion, Cardi B's one-minute-long spot came out on top.
Once again, the Love & Hip Hop alum stole the spotlight in Amazon's Alexa commercial, which will go down in history. After the company's digital personal assistant loses her voice, the rapper is brought in to help, along with chef Gordon Ramsay, Sir Anthony Hopkins, and Rebel Wilson to help. Despite the star power in the ade, when it comes to replacement robots, our pick will always be the "Bodak Yellow" songstress.
"Okurr! How far is Mars? How am I supposed to know? I've never been there," she hilarously says in the commercial, which topped USA Today's ad meter. "This guy wants to go to Mars. Why? There's not even oxygen there." She goes on to play her hit song when asked for country music — proving that everyone loves Cardi B.

The NFL proved it has a sense of humor with their Dirty Dancing-inspired commercial, starring New York Giants players Eli Manning and Odell Beckham Jr. The best part: Eli lifting Odell over his head in the infamous dance move.
While Tide has not been making the best headlines lately (Tide Pod challenge anyone?) the company did not disappoint with their series of commercials starring Stranger Things star David Harbour. Old Spice guy Isaiah Mustafa even makes a cameo in one of the 15-second spots because #blessed.
The beer company traded in their signature Clydesdales for a more serious commercial, when it featured a spot dedicated to their work amidst the tragedies of last year, using their facilities to fill Budweiser cans with water for victims in Florida, Texas, California, and Puerto Rico. It also didn't help that the one-minute ad featured the song "Stand By You." Where are the tissues?

And who can forget about our girl Tiffany Haddish? Proving superstardom has not changed her, the Groupon-loving comedian repped the money-saving brand in a hilarious commercial reminding people of the importance of supporting local businesses.
