In 2011, Volkswagen took a beloved movie franchises and put their own fun, playful spin on it. Advertising their latest vehicle, the company's Super Bowl spot featured a young boy dressed in a Darth Vader costume trying his best to command the Force. It's only with some help from his dad that the boy is able to tap into his super powers.
Always used its 2015 Super Bowl spot to promote confidence and equality with its #LikeAGirl movement. The ad featured people being asked to run, throw and fight "like a girl."

Microsoft used it's 2014 Super Bowl commercial to highlight the positive power of technology. Featuring former NFL player Steve Gleason who has been battling with ALS since 2011, the ad shows how imporovements in technology can help people live better lives. From a little boy with prosthetic legs to an elderly man losing his eyesight, the commercial is emotional, but ultimately hopeful.
In this 2010 ad, a snappy Betty White takes the field, but not without a Snickers.
This 2019 Toyota commercial will leave you reaching for a tissue. It tells the story of Lauren Woolstencroft, who was borning missing both legs below her knees and her left arm below the elbow, and went on to become an 8-time Paralympic gold medal champion.
