Even if you're trying to forget, it wasn't too long ago that we gelled back our hair, wore acid-wash jeans and used brick phones. Now you can use phones to swipe right on a crush, update your status and even buy movie tickets. The latest spot from Fandango, featuring Mark-Paul Gosselaar, helps us reminisce about the good 'ole pre-smart phone days and how far we've come since.
Meanwhile, in celebration of Pride month, Tylenol and Chobani take the number one and two spots respectively for most engaging ads, each of which touches on LGBT themes. Both ads showcase same-sex couples and take a strong stance toward the highly discussed social issue. Ending with "Family isn't defined by who you love but how," Tylenol's "How We Love" shows a modern point of view about embracing all types of families.
