The 51st Super Bowl is set to air on Feb 5th this year, and as always, advertising slots during the big game broadcast have been taken over by all the big names, and are now worth a reported $5 million for a 30-second slot. Yeeeeoooowwwwch! That’s almost as much as I earn! . . not! 🙁
Even if you’re not into the Super Bowl, some of the Ads CAN be quite amusing, and the half-time entertainment is always pretty good . . . well better than this little pearler at the Australian AFL Grand Final a few years ago anyway!
Many brands this year are keeping pretty quiet about what they have in mind, but expect to see more teasers as the broadcast date gets nearer to the day, especially if you’re watching the whole lead-up etc!
Having said that, some of last years Ads weren’t too bad at all, so I’ve selected a few of those I thought you might enjoy.
Sit back, plug in, and lets waste some of the boss’s time eh!?
(they actually had to pull this one after ppl complained that it promoted illegal puppy farming!)
Aaaaaaaand that’s half time – this year dubbed the “Pepsi Zero Sugar Halftime Show” starring Lady Gaga.
. . . and her behind-the-scenes footage in the buildup to the show!
MB didn’t advertise last year but it’s the 50th anniversary of the Mercedes AMG so it’s a pretty sure bet they will this year!
They had 2 Ads last year.
Ok, Ok! . . . some are a bit bland but some are not too bad – you can see the other less-funny ones at Business Insider – big H/t btw guys!
Totally unbiased opinion here BUT, none of them are a patch on this one from a few years ago (sorry about the quality – best I could find, honest!)
Enjoy! – and happy Super Bowl!!!
