Super Bowl season— it’s something you either hate or love. One thing everyone looks forward to, sports fans and sports haters alike, are the new and funny commercials. These pricey commercials, at 5 million dollars for just 30 seconds, are worth a watch. The following are the most memorable from the 2017 Super Bowl:
Stranger Things Season 2
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know Stranger Things was the biggest show of the summer. If you’ve watched the first season of Stranger Things, you’ve most likely been on the edge of your seat waiting for Season 2 to be announced. Luckily, an old school waffle commercial gave us quite a surprise by announcing it, which is airing Halloween 2017.

This car commercial begins with a father talking about how he will tell his daughter that she will never be equal to a man, no matter her education, drive, skills, or intelligence, unless something changes.
