From Lip Sync Fails To Bizarre Commercials, Here Are 12 Awkward Moments From The 2022 Super Bowl

The best part of the show, TBH.

The Polestar commercial appeared to take some jabs at Tesla, promising “no conquering Mars” and “no greenwashing.”

People thought it was a shot at Tesla because its founder and CEO, Elon Musk, has said he plans to get an orbit to Mars by 2024. The company has also been accused of greenwashing, or really overselling and overstating how eco-friendly the company is. More on that here.

Doja Cat made this face on the jumbotron:



50 Cent suffered a lip sync fail during his surprise performance of “In Da Club”:

And people called out Eminem for seemingly lipping to a pre-recorded track for the one song he performed, “Lose Yourself”:

Anyone else catch Eminem lip syncing? 🤣😂🤣😂. Lowers the mic and he was still magically singing.
