Under Official Review: The Ads of Super Bowl LI

The good, the bad, and the ugly

February 17, 2017

Welcome back, Warriors, to Talley and August’s annual article: “Under Official Review”, where we actively seek out the best and brightest ads that the Super Bowl can offer. It’s been a year since our inaugural issue when we made Hemisphere history with the critically acclaimed analysis of Super Bowl 50. One year later, and we’re covering LI (pronounced “fifty one”) with the same zesty critique as its 2016 counterpart. Let’s jump right in!
