6 Most Jewish Super Bowl Ads

Everyone is talking about Scarlett Johansson’s upcoming Super Bowl ad for SodaStream. FOX has already nixed the original version, though not because of any political concerns — apparently it’s a big no-no to make fun of Coke and Pepsi.

But what about the other Jews who have carved their spot in the Super Bowl ad Hall of Fame?

Get ready for a little trip down memory lane, paved with Ferris Bueller parodies, a Jerry Seinfeld/Jay Leno rivalry, and even an Elton John/Paula Abdul duet.

And really, after being bombarded with news of his misadventures, who doesn’t want to feign ignorance and ask: “What’s a Bieber?”

Elton John and Paula Abdul, Diet Coke, 1990.

Jerry Seinfeld and Jay Leno, Acura, 2012.

Justin Bieber and Ozzy Osbourne, Best Buy, 2011.

Matthew Broderick, Honda CRV, 2012.

David Beckham, H&M Bodywear, 2012.

Bar Refaeli, Go Daddy, 2013.
