Even if LA didn’t make it to the big game, the Rams got plenty of airtime in this year’s Super Bowl. Several of the commercials that aired on Sunday featured work by VCU Brandcenter alumni.

The masterminds behind the Coors Lite Chill Train’s return to the small screen were Chris Colliton and Kevin Weir, both Brandcenter grads. While this wasn’t their first Super Bowl ad, this year’s production was one of their biggest yet.

You may have also caught this year’s Opendoor commercial. Brandcenter alum Hannah Hugeback played a major role in the production.

Other commercials featuring work from Rams included over a dozen ads for brands including Oreo, Reese’s, Best Buy, and Audi. All told, there were 20 ad campaigns featuring 27 alums this year. All of those commercials (as well as spots from previous years) can be found on the Brandcenter YouTube channel.
