Every year, the Super Bowl draws more eyes than any other American stage. Whether you are a die-hard football fan, only watch for the commercials or are just in it for the snacks, the evening offers something for everyone. Here are 5 moments we reveled in during last night’s Atlanta affair.
Tom Brady’s first pass
Coming into the big game quite confidently, the New England Patriots and leader Tom Brady are no strangers to the Super Bowl. The Los Angeles Rams put up a bold fight and pulled out all the stops, including an interception of Brady’s first pass. Ouch.
The epic return of Carrie Bradshaw
Every Sex and the City fan knows that Carrie Bradshaw’s go-to cocktail is a cosmopolitan. Well, fast-forward to 2019, and she’s sipping on something different. Cast as the face of Stella Artois, Sarah Jessica Parker has rebooted the protagonist character that launched her career into superstardom. Does this mean we’ll be getting a third SATC movie sans Samantha sometime soon? We’ll be waiting with bated breath.
The gospel choir
Headlining the halftime show, Maroon 5 took the stage by storm, performing hit after hit and enlisting the likes of Travis Scott and Big Boi to join the Adam Levine–led performance. But the real show began when an Atlanta gospel choir graced the stage, putting every other vocalist to shame.
A major theme of this year’s commercials was the inevitable integration of robots in our everyday lives. Whether the ads were promoting a credit card, an insurance company or an alcoholic beverage, these wired beings seemed to fit right into any situation. Did you see the one with the baby face? I can’t deal.
Cardi B teaching Steve Carell how to say “Okurr”
Very publicly, the Super Bowl committee had a tough time nailing down talent for the halftime show. Rihanna made headlines when she turned down the offer, pledging her allegiance to Colin Kaepernick, and a long roster of other performers followed suit. One of those artists, Cardi B, made an appearance in a totally different light, teaching Hollywood favorite Steve Carell how to say her signature phrase, “Okurr.” The rapping phenom is the face of Pepsi this year, and honestly, we’re here for it.
