For most Americans, Super Bowl Sunday is not only entertaining because of the game, but also because of the hilarious commercials — and this year was no different.
With each break, viewers reviewed the ads, sharing their honest and unfiltered opinions on Twitter. With tons of commercials to sift through, social media users have been most struck by Indeed’s ad. The employment website aired an inspiring commercial during the show, which featured a cover of Andra Day’s hit song “Rise Up” by TikTok star Christian Shelton. The clip highlighted how difficult the past year has been for Americans to remain employed amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. The company also shared job leads in support of the ad on Twitter. “Indeed commercial, loved it. It was real and most importantly relatable,” one Twitter user wrote.
