2. Grubhub commercial – second place in top 10 most searched commercials worldwide in 2021

Grubhub commercial “Delivery Dance” was the second most searched commercial worldwide in 2021. Again, is not because the advert is amazing.

The Jeep commercial for Super Bowl LV ft. Bruce Springsteen is a good advert but not so excellent to be on 3rd place on Google search in 2021.

8. Oatly commercial

The dairy milk alternative brand Oatly is known for its highly obnoxious marketing style. It is no wonder that the numerous scandals and controversies in which this brand was involved led to a good place in the ranking of the most searched commercials worldwide in 2021. A UK watchdog banned the Oatly ads over ‘misleading’ green claims.

Moreover, Oatly’s deeply strange Super Bowl 2021 ad features a song written and performed by Oatly CEO Toni Petersson with lyrics like “It’s like milk, but made for humans” and “Wow no cow.” And it was a 5-year-old ad at the time of the Super Bowl 2021 broadcast (It originally ran in Sweden in 2014). This ad was banned in Sweden. People quickly search for the ad with a strong mixed sentiment of confusion and annoyance.
