In recent years, many viewers tuned in to the Super Bowl not only for the athleticism and excitement of football, but also to enjoy the spectacle of commercials broadcast during one of the most popular sporting events in the United States will be

On Sunday night, amid a string of commercials and a halftime performance by singer The Weeknd, many memes flooded social media

Whether Twitter freaked out about the nostalgia of 3D Doritos or got motion sickness from The Weeknd’s appearance, there was a lot to laugh about online

Commercials are often meme fodder, and there’s no better time to remember them than during the Super Bowl

One who stood out on social media was Oatly’s CEO Toni Petersson, who sang about the company’s oat milk product in a box. The bizarre song, which Petersson himself wrote, according to Adweek, included the text, “It’s like Milk Made for people Wow ”

Immediately, the commercial started spreading on social media and people said they never wanted to buy Oatly again because the spot was so valuable

“This commercial was so bad I’ll never buy oat milk,” tweeted Joseph P Huber, community strategist at Social Sprout, a social media software company

Either they forced the CEO of oatly to do it or he wanted to and no one will make me happy

Comedian Caleb Hearon tweeted that he wasn’t sure how the commercial came about, but still he wasn’t satisfied

“Either they forced the CEO to do this or he wanted to and no one is going to make me happy,” Hearon tweeted

Another commercial that intrigued the internet was a State Farm commercial that featured rapper Drake replacing the face of insurance company “Jake From State Farm”

Although the light-hearted commercial, which also featured cameos of actor Paul Rudd and Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, seemed to be well received, many used the commercial as an opportunity to publicize Drake, who was Drake, both immersing and praising appeared noticeably buff at the point

“Hahahaha, I swear the first words out of my mouth” DRAKESWOLE AIN’T HE !!?!? “tweeted user Hana Williams

“Nothing has been the same since @Drake From @StateFarm was deleted,” tweeted Republic Records, Drake’s record label, along with a photo of Drake from commercial photoshopping on an album cover

The Weeknd, real name Abel Makkonen Tesfaye, played a medley of his hits, including “Blinding Lights”, “Can’t Feel My Face” and “The Hills”, in front of a host of robotic choir singers

At some point during the performance, The Weeknd stepped into what appeared to be a golden hallway and looked like he was filming himself as he crossed the corridor in confusion. Quickly, social media took advantage of a 3-second clip of The Weeknd, the camera shaking walked through the golden hall when the singer feigned disorientation

“I’m trying to follow the hostess to my table at the cheesecake factory,” wrote Conor Ryan, an author for the Boston Sports Journal. Just after 9 p.m. on Sunday, Ryan’s tweet had 49000 likes and that number grew rapidly

Emily C Singer, an American Independent reporter, tweeted that the 3-second clip reminded her of a very familiar feeling

Others joked that The Weeknd’s backup dancers, who appeared to have medical wraps on their faces, looked like a picture of SpongeBob SquarePants with the character wearing underwear

While the short clip was converted into countless memes, and some joked about the backup dancers’ performances, others referred to the 2019 film, “Uncut Gems,” which featured a cameo from The Weeknd

“Oh, the uncut gem guy,” New York Times reporter Astead Herndon tweeted as the performance began

Dave Itzkoff, reporter for the New York Times, tweeted a still from the film in which The Weeknd pushed Adam Sandler’s character out of a club, adding, “I can’t believe they wouldn’t get Sandler to do it””

Some reached for still images, selected moments that showed the camera’s confused blur, and compared them to what happens when kids pick up a smartphone

“Kids run the second they pick up your phone,” tweeted writer Jasmine Watkins Others shared pictures their children mistakenly took of themselves in response to Watkins to prove how similar the two images were looked
