Liam Neeson, Steven Tyler, Ryan Reynolds star in 2016 Super Bowl ads

USA – After a round up of the animals starring in Super Bowl ads this year, let’s take a look at the TV commercials featuring hot shot Hollywood personalities.

Nine brands – Budweiser, Bud Light,, LG, Hyundai, Shock Top, Avocados From Mexico, KIA, and Skittles – spent big bucks on celebrities like Liam Neeson, Steven Tyler, Ryan Reynolds, Alec Baldwin, Christopher Walken, and more to try and make sure they get the much needed ROI during this mega sporting event.

Here are the ads:


Budweiser, as opposed to previous years, did not book a cute Golden Retriever this time but instead featured Helen Mirren from The Hundred Foot Journey in a fairly straightforward public service announcement ad called “Simply Put.”

Bud Light’s commercial is in line with the US Elections featuring Amy Schumer and Seth Rogen as poll candidates under The Bud Light Party.

Agency: Wieden+Kennedy

Amazon’s first ever Super Bowl ad stars Alec Baldwin, Missy Elliot, and former Miami Dolphin quarterback Dan Marino to promote The Echo, a voice-activated speaker.

Taken star Liam Neeson makes another Super Bowl appearance for LG’s “Man from the Future” after starring in last year’s Clash of Clans ad.

Production Company: RSA Films

In Hyundai’s ad, Ryan Reynolds plays the role of a fatally cute distraction to women drivers. Thankfully, the Hyundai 2017 Elantra has an impressive automatic breaking system for when you can’t keep your eyes on the road.
