The 2022 Super Bowl was full of unexpected plays, a halftime show that featured artists who have been missed and commercials that did not fail to entertain. Whether you were happy with the outcome or not, getting together with friends and eating buffalo chicken dip is always a good excuse to watch football. To hear some of the highlights of this year’s game, keep reading!
The Los Angeles Rams played the Cincinnati Bengals in the SoFi stadium located in Los Angeles, California. The Rams won 23-20 which aligns with the fact that they were favorited for this year’s game. This is the second win for the Rams in the Super Bowl with their first being back in 2000. The Rams took the win in their home stadium which made it extra special for the team and the fans that were watching.
Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre, Kendrick Lamar, Eminem and Mary J. Blige all performed at the halftime show. The hip-hop-themed performance featured some of the most well-known rap artists in the country. The artists all have a history together when it comes to their songs and albums, making the performance even more special for them to come together. Towards the end, 50 Cent joined them on stage as a guest performer.
As for what fans thought, people seemed pleasantly surprised! Many have not been too happy with the recent halftime shows so this bounceback, especially after the pandemic, was much needed.
Media outlets definitely entertained fans with a variety of celebrities and humor. Lindsey Lohan made a return to the screen with a commercial made by Planet Fitness. Like always, brands such as Lays and Doritos had their spot in the commercial breaks. Not only were celebrities involved, but talking animals were featured throughout the Doritos commercials. A little odd as some would say, but at least they provided some form of entertainment during the breaks!
The Super Bowl is always a good time for family and friends to come together and enjoy one of America’s favorite sports. Even if you do not enjoy football, there are always other things to entertain you through the night. The commercials, halftime shows and even the Puppy Bowl are always a must-watch for those who are not sports lovers.
