This year's Super Bowl featured dueling ads from President Trump and Michael Bloomberg—but there was a lot more buzz around Mr. Peanut. In a commercial that features in numerous lists of both the best and worst ads from the big game, mourners, including fellow mascots Mr. Clean and the Kool-Aid Man, gather for the funeral of Mr. Peanut, whose death at age 104 Planters announced last month. But their grief turned out to be short-lived, as Baby Nut soon emerged from the soil. Other talked-about ads, which can be seen in the gallery:
- Google. Google's ad was a tear-jerker that CNN likens to the "opening sequence of the movie Up distilled into a commercial."
- Jeep. In what the Street ranks as this year's best Super Bowl ad, Jeep's "Groundhog Day" ad features Bill Murray breaking the familiar morning routine with a new Jeep Gladiator—and a fun-loving groundhog.
