Funny British Adverts That Give Super Bowl Commercials a Run for Their Money

The U.S. is in a tizzy gearing up for the Super Bowl this weekend with Disney World-like festivities in NYC and the actual game taking place in New Jersey at the Metlife Stadium, which is home to the NFL’s New York Jets and New York Giants. Two New York teams play out of NJ? It is a bit confusing, so we don’t blame Sirs Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen for mixing two sports, American football and football, as seen in the above snap.

Even non-sports fans get into the spirit, attending parties, eating tons and tuning into the game just for the commercials. While Brits in the U.K may not be taking part in the Super Bowl, they do have some bragging rights when it comes to some extremely clever and entertaining commercials.

Take a look at British advertising at its best here:

2. Marmite 
This first date goes downhill fast.

3.  Three.Co.Uk 
A Shetland pony dances to “Everywhere” by Fleetwood Mac.

7. Carling Black Label 
Just the right amount of British.
