Too Long; Didn't Read
This year's Superbowl adverts were a lot more mild than “controversial” when compared to last year. But one could still sense a hint of unease over the beginning of our co-existence with increasingly autonomous robots and algorithms. The adverts, on the other hand, have always been my go-to staple to better assess the mood the largest economy of the world finds itself in at a particular moment in time. I’ve elected to over-interpret 6 Superbowl ads in order to gauge popular culture’s thoughts on our robotic future and extrapolate a deeper meaning from silly gags.
