Keep an Eye Out for These 3 Dancy Super Bowl Commercials

It's game day, dancers! We're talking, of course, about the Super Bowl—but maybe more importantly, about the always hilarious and thought-provoking commercials that air in between all the, um, sportsball. (Sorry, not a football person!) This year, it looks like we'll be blessed with at least three ad spots highlighting dance. Without any further ado, here's all the best dance going down later today during the commercial "breaks." (As if we'd take a break from watching, PLEASE.)


Expensify

Comedian Adam Scott makes a memorable guest appearance in this spot for the reimbursement-app company. We're most excited, though, about the Cleopatran (we just decided that's a word now, FYI) dancers adding glitz and glamour to rapper 2 Chainz's parody of your typically over-the-top lavish music video.

Doritos

There are only brief teasers out as of now, but we CANNOT WAIT to see the full version of this commercial, starring dancing-boy-band icons The Backstreet Boys and wunderkind Chance the Rapper. In a nod to the original music video for "I Want It That Way," the guys are working on some moves in an aircraft hangar. Unclear what that has to do with Doritos, but we're looking forward to learning the answers later today.

Mercedes-Benz

This last one's a bit of an honorable mention, as the major dancing happens briefly—around 0:25. But that brief moment of movement is worth mentioning because Ludacris makes a special appearance for said choreo! (Ludacris famously hails from Atlanta, where today's game will take place.)

Enjoy the game, the commercials, and what's sure to be some awesome dancing in the halftime show!

How to Dance Outside

We've all been stubbing our toes and whacking our elbows dancing in less-than-roomy indoor spots lately (hello, 5' x 8' patch of bathroom tile). If you're lucky enough to have access to a backyard or other big green space right now, you're probably itching to take your grand allegro outside, especially as the weather gets warmer. But how can you dance safely and productively in the great outdoors? We got pro tips from Mike Tyus of Jacob Jonas The Company and Xin Ying of Martha Graham Dance Company, both of whom were dancing outside long before COVID-19 hit.
