The Latest on the ads of the 2018 Super Bowl (all times Eastern Time):

10:45 p.m.

The Giants won the Super Bowl.

Not really Derwin James Youth Jersey , but Eli Manning and Odell Beckham Jr. stole the show with an NFL ad in which the two perform the choreography from the movie ”Dirty Dancing” – complete with the iconic lift done by Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey.

The third-quarter ad was an instant social media hit. Twitter users said they had the time of their life.

Bret Werner, who is the president of MWW public relations, says ”the NFL spot on ”Dirty Dancing” was vintage. The Odell and Eli connection scored off the field.”



10:00 a.m.

Hyundai is trying a stunt to advertise that it donates to pediatric cancer research every time someone buys a Hyundai.

The ad was filmed on location in Minneapolis in the days before the Super Bowl. The company invited Hyundai owners to the Super Bowl Experience fan event near the stadium and made them go through a pseudo-metal detector that went off when they passed through. The owners were brought into a room and shown a video about cancer survivors. Then, the actual survivors walked in.

Dean Evans, Hyundai chief marketing officer, says some of the Hyundai owners thought they were in trouble even though the metal detectors had hearts on them. He says, ”there’s this big heart the size of a head, glowing, and no one noticed it.”

Part of the fun for Super Bowl ad viewers is guessing which brand is behind the hokey jokes or inspirational messages before a commercial ends. Tide is playing on that game with a series of ads that give one answer: They’re all Tide ads!

”Stranger Things” actor David Harbor pops up in scenes that seem to be ads about different products: a car, an insurance company, jewelry and Old Spice (another P&G product). He proclaims them all Tide ads because everyone’s shirt is spotless – even the mechanic underneath a car.

The lighthearted ads have been trending on Twitter and getting good reviews.

Bret Werner is the president of MWW public relations. He says the Tide ad is creative and ”a great way to draft off of every commercial.”



9 p.m.

The trailer for ”Solo: Star Wars Story” is getting the most Twitter attention so far, followed by Wendy’s attack ad against McDonald’s.

That’s according to an initial analysis by Amobee, a global marketing technology company.

Also among the most-tweeted were Tide, Ram Trucks Cheap Tremaine Edmunds Jersey , Pepsi and the back-to-back Mountain Dew/Doritos ad featuring Peter Dinklage and Morgan Freeman lip-synching to hip-hop.

Tide seems to be getting positive reaction for its attempt to co-opt all other Super Bowl ads. In a spot that harked back to the ”Energizer Bunny” of the 90s, the message is that anyone wearing clean clothes must be in a Tide ad.

Ram Trucks is getting mixed reactions. Many Twitter users were put off by the use of an MLK speech to sell trucks. Others appreciated the sentiment.



8:15 p.m.

Fiat Chrysler is using the 50th anniversary of a Martin Luther King Jr. speech to sell trucks.

King’s voice rings out as the ad for Ram Trucks shows a series of ordinary people in acts of love. In his speech, King called on people to show greatness through kindness and service. The point? Ram’s tagline: ”Built To Serve.”

The ad, which wasn’t released early, contrasted with the humor many other brands are going for.

Wendy’s took its ongoing Twitter snark against McDonald’s to the small screen. Its first quarter ad called out its rival for using frozen beef in most of its patties. Wendy got into it before the game started, tweeting at McDonald’s: ”Who wants a Bread Mac?” That came minutes after McDonald’s aired an ad before kickoff.

Look for his coming on the first light of the fifth day, at dawn look to the East.

Oh no, that was Gandalf at the Battle of Helm’s Deep. The much-ballyhooed Bud Knight’s adventure turned out to be much different. More like that friend who’s always promising he’ll ”try” to stop by for drinks after the ”thing” he has later.

Bud Light is aiming to give impatient ”Game of Thrones” fans their fantasy fix with a series of ads that follow a hapless medieval army that shouts the nonsensical phrase ”Dilly Dilly” before battle.

They looked for his coming in the second quarter. Before halftime, they looked to the 60-second ad. But the Bud Knight blew off his military duties to have drinks with friends.

The Super Bowl isn’t the only sporting event in town. NBC will start broadcasting the Olympics just four days after the big game, so some Super Bowl ads are Olympics-related.

NBC is running five 60-second spots pregame, in game and postgame, each featuring an athlete’s Olympic story: skier Mikaela Shiffrin, snowboarder Chloe Kim, snowboarder Shaun White Tyron Smith Jersey Womens , figure skater Nathan Chen and skier Lindsey Vonn.

Meanwhile, Toyota has its own 60-second ad with an Olympics and Paralympics theme airing in the first quarter.

Some Super Bowl ads will pull double duty. For instance, Coca-Cola’s 60-second fourth-quarter ad that celebrates the diversity of its customers will also run during the opening ceremonies.

Just who are the 111 million viewers of the Super Bowl? According to Nielsen, the audience last year was almost evenly split between men and women – 5 Third-year pro Kenyan Drake has been with the Miami Dolphins longer than any other running back on their roster, which gives him seniority of sorts – except that new backup Frank Gore is 35 years old.

Even so, Drake considers his maturity an asset for a change entering his first full season as the starter.

He performed well in the No. 1 role after starter Jay Ajayi was traded to Philadelphia at midseason last year. Drake gave Miami a much-needed big-play threat, had back-to-back 100-yard games, finished with 644 yards rushing and averaged 4.8 yards per carry, which ranked sixth in the NFL.

Drake has touchdowns of 96, 66, 45 and 42 yards for the Dolphins, with the longest coming on a kickoff return. But as they prepare for another season during this month’s OTAs, Drake said he should have made more of an impact sooner.

The third-down draft pick out of Alabama in 2016 had only a small role his first year.

”My rookie year was a big learning experience,” Drake said Tuesday. ”I just wasn’t mentally prepared to handle the workload of an everyday starter. I came up short.”

Now Clay Matthews Jersey Elite , he said, he’s ready. And he needs to be, given typically heavy recent roster turnover.

”I’m the longest-tenured running back, which is pretty interesting,” he said. ”Two years ago I was coming in fresh-faced. Funny how time flies. I’m definitely embracing this role, and trying to help this team win a lot more games in the coming years.”

He said he’ll benefit from guidance by Gore, the NFL’s active career rushing leader, who signed with his hometown team as a free agent in March.

”I always remind Frank that when he first came into the league, I was in fifth or sixth grade,” Drake said with a chuckle. ”If I have half the success he has had in his career, that would be a win in my book.”

Coach Adam Gase expects a lot of success for Drake, and confirmed the young pro has matured.

”When you’re in this league, sometimes there’s a little bit of a feeling-out process,” Gase said. ”You’re trying to figure out Cheap Frank Ragnow Jersey , who are you? You’re starting to get older. You really realize this is a job, and it’s different than college.

”I see a different guy – the way he prepares, knowing the situation he’s coming into this year. I think we just have a guy that’s really looking to bust out.”

Drake is part of a much different offense this year. Ryan Tannehill returns at quarterback after missing all of last season because of a knee injury, and the Dolphins added several new pass targets and two starters on the offensive line.

Miami sputtered to a 6-10 finish in 2017, and the dismal season was a new experience for Drake, who lost six games in four years of college.

”I love to win,” he said. ”That’s why I went to Alabama.”

The championship pedigree was one reason the Dolphins drafted Drake. It also factored into their decision to take Alabama safety Minkah Fitzpatrick in the first round of last month’s draft.

Good choice, according to Fitzpatrick’s former and new teammate.

”At Alabama, Minkah was a professional from the jump,” Drake said. ”It’s rare you see a freshman come in and have that mentality of, `I want to work, I want to be the best.’ I feel like he is going to be in this league a very, very long time.”
