The Super Bowl is perhaps the only TV event where people look forward to the commercials. It may be difficult to remember them all, but did you happen to notice all the helicopter appearances? Not to mention the commercials that might have employed a helicopter to assist with filming. From game advertisements to movie trailers, here are some commercials with rotorcraft cameos:


If Arnold Schwarzenegger says "get to the choppa," there will be choppers. Although animated, the helicopters in this Mobile Strike ad could bear semblance to the Sikorsky Black Hawk.


This "Transformers: The Last Knight" TV spot featured what could be Sikorsky Black Hawks, Boeing Apaches and Bell Boeing V-22 Ospreys. While we hate to see them crashing, there's no doubt that helicopters have the unique ability to add magnitude to any action sequence.

The bird in this Fiji Water commercial turned into a butterfly. No manufacturer has designed an aircraft with that capability yet, but before its transformation, it sure looked like an Airbus AS355.
