Every year it seems like Hollywood stars lend their talent to a series of Super Bowl ads, and 2020 is no exception.

The San Francisco 49ers and the Kansas City Chiefs played Sunday in the big game, airing live on Fox from Miami's Hard Rock Stadium. Though touchdowns and kickoffs are meant to take center stage — along with the dual halftime performance from Jennifer Lopez and Shakira — many viewers tuned in for the commercials.

A string of star-studded ads — which cost millions of dollars to air — hit the web ahead of Sunday's telecast. The Super Bowl commercial class of 2020 includes famous faces such as Chris Evans and John Krasinski for Hyundai, Taraji P. Henson and Busy Philipps for Olay, and Rainn Wilson for Little Caesars, among others.

Read on for more about the Super Bowl LIV ads featuring notable names.

  • Amazon Alexa

    Married couple Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi star in an ad for Amazon, in which they ponder how people got through life without the help of the company's virtual assistant, Alexa. In subsequent scenes, characters from different centuries hilariously depict how people might have performed menial tasks pre-Alexa.

  • Audi

    Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams belts Disney's Frozen theme song "Let It Go" as she lets go of the past and drives into a more sustainable future in the new Audi e-tron Sportback.

  • Avocados From Mexico

    Getting glam in a dressing room, actress Molly Ringwald helps a friend also get ready — an avocado which she adorns with a tiny sparkling tiara. Looking in the mirror at the bejeweled fruit, she proudly says, "They're going to eat you up."

  • Bud Light

    Promoting the beer company's new line of Bud Light Seltzers, Post Malone's mind is blown when he is offered one that is mango-flavored. As he takes his first sip from the can, the commercial offers a look inside the musician's "brain," where an army of tiny people (all of whom have his signature face tattoos) help Malone process the drink bursting with flavor.

  • Cheetos

    With the help of MC Hammer, the cheesy snack brand is taking it back to 1989 when the musician's hit "Can't Touch This" took over radio airwaves. In its promo, MC Hammer is seen eating a bag of Cheetos as he sits down at a piano to presumably write a song. But once he notices all the orange residue on his fingers, he looks down and says to himself, "Wait, I can’t touch this"— and the rest, as the commercial implies, is history.

  • Coca-Cola Energy

    Martin Scorsese and Jonah Hill's friendship is tested in this new ad for Coca-Cola. Luckily, after Hill gets his hands on a the beverage company's new energy drink, he feels up to hanging out with the famed filmmaker who he previously thought about flaking on.

  • Doritos

    Dressed in cowboy garb, Sam Elliot speaks in a significant Western drawl as he recites the lyrics to Lil Nas X and Billy Ray Cyrus' country-infused hip-hop hit "Old Town Road" to hilariously intimidate fellow patrons at a saloon. A bag of "more cool" Cool Ranch Doritos then finds its way onto the bar counter, teasing its Feb. 20 release in stores. In part two of the commercial, Lil Nas X makes an appearance, riding a horse while blasting his record-breaking single.

  • Facebook

    Sylvester Stallone and Chris Rock star in Facebook's first-ever Super Bowl ad, promoting the social media platform's "More Together" campaign. Rock and "Rocky" are seen celebrating "the power of Facebook Groups," bringing together people from different backgrounds over shared interests and experiences — which, in the case of this commercial, involves anything rock-related. 

  • Genesis

    The high-end motor company employed Chrissy Teigen and John Legend for their series of ads that tout the line, "Old luxury gets a wake-up call," and sees the power couple oozing charm and relatability as they stumble their way through a decadent party.

  • Hard Rock Hotel & Casino

    Halftime performer Jennifer Lopez, her fiance Alex Rodriguez, her musical collaborators DJ Khaled and Pitbull and singer-songwriter-actor Steven Van Zandt appear in a commercial directed by Michael Bay called "The Hype" — which, according to a press release, sees "Lopez on a thrilling pursuit through the world's first Guitar Hotel at the newly expanded Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Hollywood, encountering a few familiar faces of the above noted stars along the way."

  • Hulu

    NFL star Tom Brady teased a potential retirement in a moody ad for Hulu, which ultimately saw him simply touting the streaming service's many features. Of his football career, the Patriots quarterback said, "I'm not going anywhere."

  • Hyundai

    Boston natives John Krasinski, Chris Evans, Rachel Dratch and David "Big Papi" Ortiz show off their best accents for an ad set in Beantown, highlighting Hyundai cars' "Smart Park" (or, as they say, "Smaht Pahk") feature. In a second commercial, Dratch flexes an exaggerated accent yet again as she takes on the role of dialect coach for Ortiz, helping him sound like a true Bostonian.

  • Jeep

    In his first-ever national TV commercial, called "Groundhog Day," Bill Murray relives the same day over and over again — but each day is a new adventure in his new 2020 Jeep Gladiator.  

  • Little Caesars

    The Office star Rainn Wilson is here to introduce the pizza company's latest innovation, which is apparently "better than sliced bread." At least that's what they're calling (spoiler alert) delivery. 

  • Michelob Ultra

    Unlikely duo Jimmy Fallon and John Cena team up for an ad for the beer brand in which they become workout buddies. They end an intense series of exercising with guilt-free Michelob.

  • Mountain Dew Zero Sugar

    In an ad for the soda brand, Tracee Ellis Ross and Bryan Cranston star in an epic re-imagination of The Shining where each actor flexes their comedic chops only to say that Mountain Dew's sugar-free edition is just as good as the original, maybe even better?

  • Olay

    Olay is set to launch its #MakeSpaceforWomen campaign on Super Bowl Sunday. The skincare brand will donate $1 to Girls Who Code for every time the hashtag is tweeted. In accompanying NASA-themed promos, Katie Couric, Taraji P. Henson, Lily Singh, Busy Philipps and real-life astronaut Nicole Stott appear.

  • Pepsi Zero Sugar

    In an ad for the soda brand, Missy Elliott and H.E.R team up for a mini music video in which they perform a cover of The Rolling Stones' 1966 hit "Paint It Black." "Everything about this experience — from the music, to the shoot, to the collaboration with an icon like Missy — it was really special," H.E.R. said in a statement. "Pepsi gave us the creative liberty and platform to create this song and the video, it’s an honor and I think people will appreciate how real we tried to be with the final product."

  • Pop-Tarts

    Queer Eye star and avowed Pop-Tarts fan Jonathan Van Ness is looking for something to eat — just not "dry, dull, crusty" pretzels, which is all that's offered at craft services in this Super Bowl promo. Luckily, Pop-Tarts has offered Van Ness a "fix" to his snack dilemma in the form of icing-covered pretzel pastries ready to pop in the toaster.

  • Pringles

    The animated duo Rick and Morty, from Adult Swim's irreverent cartoon of the same name, appear in a Pringles commercial in which they introduce the chip company's new "Pickle Rick" snacks.

    Sofia Vergara lends her personality to Procter & Gamble's "When We Come Together" ad campaign, which allows fans to "choose what happens next" at an interactive Super Bowl party hosted by the Modern Family actress.

  • Squarespace

    In an ad for the web design platform, Winona Ryder returns to the small town where she was born and her namesake, Winona, Minnesota.

  • Walmart

    Walmart's 60-second spot features a dozen iconic characters and spaceships — such as Star Trek's USS Enterprise D, Toy Story's Buzz Lightyear and Bill and Ted's Bill, among others — as they make their way to Earth, so they can pick up everything they need curbside at the mega retailer.
