Best: AirBnB, ‘We Accept’

While most Super ads are many months in the making, that wasn't the case for Airbnb. According to a tweet by founder Brian Cheksy last night, the company only decided last Thursday to spring for a 30 second ad and spent the intervening time producing this smart, simple, and heartfelt spot that featured AirBnB employees. The result was one of the most memorable of the game, delivering sentiments of acceptance right when this country needs them the most.

 

Gal Gadot, Melissa McCarthy, Cam Newton, Tina Fey and more – these are the ads everybody is talking about after Sunday's game.
