In addition to watching two of the best teams in the NFL battle it out on the field, football fans tuning in to the annual Super Bowl LIII game will watch some epic commercials.
On Sunday, the Los Angeles Rams of the NFC and AFC champions New England Patriots will go head-to-head at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia, for Super Bowl LIII.
While some advertisers released their commercials ahead of the game, some brands waited until day of to release their (comedic and/or thought-provoking) spots.
Here’s a list of the best 2019 Super Bowl commercials.
Michael Bublé in Bubly’s First Super Bowl Commercial
The name of PepsiCo’s line of flavored sparkling waters is getting a little makeover, thanks to Michael Bublé.
In bubly’s first Super Bowl commercial, the Grammy award-winning singer is on a one-man mission to correct the spelling and pronunciation of the bubly line (from “bubly” to “bublé,” naturally).
In the 15 second teaser above, shared exclusively with PEOPLE, the suit-clad crooner is seen sitting on the floor of a grocery store, taking a permanent marker to each colorful can—handwriting an “é” over the “y” in “bubly”—much to the frustration of the shop owner.
Steve Carell in Pepsi’s Commercial — With Cameos from Cardi B and Lil Jon!
After much speculation (and some sparkly hints on social media) Pepsi confirmed that Steve Carell will star in their new Super Bowl 53 commercial — and it will include cameos from Cardi B and Lil Jon.
The soda company released two video teasers for the ad: the first features Carell sitting in a diner and reading — and laughing over — what appears to be a funny script for the game-day commercial. The clip ends with Carell turning directly to the camera and, with an amused shrug, saying, “Ahh, we’ll see!” Mysterious!
The second clip shows Cardi sitting at a booth in the same diner, clicking her bejeweled, red-and-blue nails against a shiny, blinged-out Pepsi can. Lil Jon’s teaser focuses on the Atlanta rapper — yes, also standing in the diner — serving himself a cup of soda and saying his memorable line, “Okay!”
The Backstreet Boys and Chance the Rapper in Doritos’ Ad
Chance the Rapper is trying his hand at joining a boy band, and uh, it’s not going so well.
In an exclusive teaser from Doritos’ upcoming Super Bowl ad, the 25-year-old gets dance lessons from the Backstreet Boys. Chance and one of America’s favorite boy bands teamed up for the ad promoting the company’s new Flamin’ Hot Nacho chips.
During the teaser, the 25-year-old rapper is seen standing alongside the Backstreet Boys members, AJ McLean, Howie Dorough, Nick Carter, Kevin Richardson, and Brian Littrell as he attempts to master the dance moves to their song “I Want It That Way.”
“Terrible, dude,” McLean says.
“I think it’s the pants,” Chance replies.
Then Littrel tells Chance, “No excuses, man, let’s do it again,” before counting down for the entire group to do the fist-pumping motion together.
Sarah Jessica Parker and Jeff Bridges for Stella Artois
The megastars revisit their iconic characters — Sex and the City‘s Carrie Bradshaw for her and The Big Lebowski‘s The Dude for him — and rock the world when they change up their signature drink orders in a silly spot for the beer brand.
Christina Applegate for M&M’s
Applegate will make her Super Bowl commercial debut as the star of an M&M’s spot that may be all-too-relatable for parents.
The Emmy-winning actress plays a frustrated mom who continues to get locked out of her car during a grocery shopping trip.
A teaser for the commercial, directed by Craig Gillespie (I, Tonya), shows Applegate struggling to open the car door as it keeps being unlocked and locked from the inside.
“Unlock the door please. Real fun game but unlock the door. I’m not kidding,” she says while glaring into the car window.
Harrison Ford and More for Amazon
In a series of vague teaser clips, Amazon shows Ford, Forest Whitaker, astronauts Mark and Scott Kelly and Broad City‘s Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer being welcomed into the Amazon Beta Testing Program.
“Hello Harrison Ford,” Alexa says. “Welcome to the Amazon Beta Testing Program.”
With a grunt, Ford says, “I hate this already” as he quickly shuts the machine.
On the flip side, Whitaker’s response is positive. “Weird,” he says with a curious smile.
Jason Bateman for Hyundai
The Arrested Development and Ozark actor takes on the comedic role of an elevator operator, who guides a large group of people to a variation of floors of a building. They aren’t just any floors, though — each represents an uncomfortable or dreaded part of life, including: a root canal, jury duty, middle seat on a plane, the sex talk and a vegan dinner party.
But when Bateman instructs a married couple to exit for car shopping, they tell him they’re getting a Hyundai, which leads them to the “shopper assurance floor,” a.k.a. the most magical floor of the building.
Super Bowl LIII airs Sunday at 3:30 p.m. ET on CBS.
