The Super Bowl Is Over…Some Thoughts
February 3, 2014 Leave a comment
This year’s Super Bowl was a big disappointment. The game, which figured to be an evenly matched event between the NFL’s top offense and top defense, ended up being a 43-8 rout. The ads were equally mediocre. There were some good ones…I enjoyed Toyota’s spot with the Muppets and Terry Crews and Coca-Cola’s “America the Beautiful” was quite nice too. But there was only one ad that stood out as being an instant classic. That of course, was Budweiser’s “Puppy Love” which was a landslide winner for the Super Bowl’s best commercial. It was a great one, but after being online since Wednesday, it wasn’t a surprise to millions. It aired in one of the most expensive times during the game, right after the 2-minute warning, in what was expected to be a pivotal moment in a close game. But since it was a blowout, many people had probably tuned out by then.
And here’s a commercial that’s been lighting up the Internet today. This 2-minute spot only aired in Savannah, Georgia, and dramatically tells the story of lawyer Jamie Casino. It’s awesome, so you should watch it right now.
