For many, they're as much of a reason to tune in as the game itself - as the Super Bowl has played host to some of the most memorable commercials ever created.
With a full slate of promotional clips being shown throughout Sunday night's (February 5) Super Bowl XLVI, a few of the early favorites included the M&M's: Ms. Brown ad and the Jerry Seinfeld starring Acura NSX: It's Coming! promo.
As we all know, celebrities commonly endorse their own products: TV shows, movies, apparel lines, even bottles of overpriced fragrances that smell like rubbing alcohol. But probably my favorite strain of celebrity endorsements, simply because I take an absurd amount of pleasure in eating (particularly around the holidays), is that related to the food and beverage industry.
Sometimes these endorsements are very literal, as in the case of a commercial or billboard, but other times they take shape in more subtle ways, such as a reoccurring storyline in a television series. With the holiday eating season upon us, I thought it’d be appropriate to take a look at some of the most memorable celebrity food endorsements, as components of larger trends, from the past 30 years.
Surveying the past 30 years, it’s clear that celebrity food endorsements were once significantly campier than they are today, no longer as wrought with clichés, overacting, and corny jokes. The celebrities in these endorsements hammed up every moment of their on-camera time, as though audiences would be at a complete loss without their comically exaggerated speech and actions. Oh yes, the 80s were a magical time.
A leader in campy food endorsements was the great Bill Cosby, whose love for Jell-o will not escape our memories anytime soon. Just thinking about his commercials makes me want to run to the market and buy some pudding pops.
