The Good Super Bowl Commercials

Well the Super Bowl has ended. Commercials have come and gone, but some are still being talked about. Some in a good way. Some in a bad way. Personally, I did not really like all the commercials this year, but some have stood out amongst the crowd. Here is my own personal list of the good ones. I am not going to mention all the commercials, but just a few to get the point across.

My sister and I were texting back and forth about the commercials. She helped me choose the best ones.

The Good List:

#1. Budweiser: “Brotherhood”

This one is nostalgic and excellent. Budweiser has done it again with the Clydesdales.

#2. Tide: “Joe Montana Stain”

This one is funny. The guy gets a stain on his jersey in the shape of Joe Montana and then the wife washes it…she’s wearing a Ravens jersey…

#3. Samsung: “Next Big Thing”

Seth Rogen and Paul Rudd star is this hilarious commercial that mocks other brands’ commercials.

#4. Coke: “Chase”

This commercial leaves you in suspense and you get to decide who wins the Coke.

#5. Kia” “Space Babies”

Classic story a father would tell ┬áhis son about where a baby comes from. The Kia helps change the subject by playing “The Wheels on the Bus”.

#6. Oreo: “Choose Your Side”

Oreo dominated in the advertising, especially when the lights went out in the stadium. Didn’t get to see it? Here is the ad they came up with on the spot. They put this on Twitter and it became a sensation. ­čÖé

#7. Pistachio: “Crackin’ Gangnam Style”

This one was funny and kind of weird. It was definitely a talked about commercial.

#8. Dodge: “So God Made a Farmer”

Now this one did not make as much sense to me as the other ones. I get that farmers need heavy duty trucks to do their work, but they barely mention a Dodge. In face they don’t until the very end and then it says, “To the farmer in all of us”. I guess every one has a need for a Dodge truck? I personally don’t like Dodges. But that’s my opinion.

Well there you have it. My list of the top most-talked about Super Bowl commercials. Hope you enjoyed and check back for more ad campaigns.

Advertisements

Ad Campaign: Bud Light

It’s a sure sign of a good time. That’s the slogan of Bud Light. Another phrase of there’s is, “Here We Go”.

Since I did a blog post on Budweiser, I figured I should do one on another similar beer. If you go to their website, you can view their most recent commercials on their YouTube sight where they have a Twitter feed going. You can also see what is new in Bud Light land. I am not a beer fan, but I do like their advertisements, specifically, the commercials. Even for me, someone who does not like beer at all, is slightly persuaded in their ads. (I have tried the beer.) Oh, and did I mention that they are the official beer of the Super Bowl XLVII?? I guess that is pretty cool.

So now I am going to post their most recent commercials and what I think about them. Here We Go!

This one is titled, Superstitious. I like it because  no matter what superstitious thing you do to make sure your team makes that goal, it works and you can have a sip of that Bud Light. Plus, it is nice to see what sort of superstitious things people will do.

This one is entitled, The Visitor. It has the same theme as the video above. This random guy just shows up at their house and sits on his lucky spot on the couch to watch the game. (He was the previous owner the last time the 49ers played in the Super Bowl.) It is funny though. I do not know if I could handle someone just showing up at my apartment to watch the game.

This next one is not for the Super Bowl, it is for their new Bud Light Lima-a-Rita. It is not my favorite commercial of theirs, but it is still good. I like it when the blender turns into a can of Bud Light Lime-a-Rita.

This one is for their Bud Light Lime. It is called, “Block Party”.

And lastly, I will mention one last Super Bowl Commercial that I like. I mentioned this one in my other blog post about Super Bowl ads, but since I like it so much, I will mention it again.

This one is called, “Rescue Dog” and his name is Weego. So when you say, “Here Weego” he goes and gets a Bud Light. And by the end of the commercial, he is rolling on a keg because there are so many people. So, this one is from 2012; prepare to watch.

I hope you enjoy these blog posts as much as I do. It is a fun way to look back and compare brands. Keep checking back for more. ­čÖé

Ad Campaign: Budweiser

I enjoyed researching and finding the right ads/commercials for Eukanuba, so I think I’ll make a habit of it…at least for now. I have chosen the company, Budweiser. Now, I do not actually like the beer itself, but I love the ads. (See my Top 12 Super Bowl Ads-you will find a couple of Budweiser ads on there.) One of the campaigns I like is the “Patriotic” campaign. I could not find any commercials to go with it, but I did find this great article about it. I hope you will read it. I will only mention a couple of campaigns here, starting with the most popular, the “Whassup” campaign based off the short film, True. Here is another blog post┬áthat explains the “Whassup”┬ácampaign.

Here are the top “Whassup” commercials:

This is one of the first commercials aired in 1999.

Read the “about” section under the video. It mentions the campaign in general and that it ran from 1999-2002.

This is the most popular “Whassup” commercial.

And, lastly, here is another one that is also one of the greats.

Another campaign, and one of my favorites, involved the Clydesdales. I don’t know about you, but I just love those horses. The commercials they made with them are incredible! Here are a few of my favorites:

This one is entitled, “Family” and it is from the 2006 Super Bowl:

This one has the donkey in it who dreams of being a Budweiser Clydesdale.

And this one is one of my favorites because it tributes 9/11.

Of course, I already mentioned a couple of other ones in my previous blog post about my Top 12 Super Bowl commercials. Those 2 are favorites of mine, titled “Hank the Clydesdale” and “Return of the King”. I refer back to it in the beginning of this blog post.

If you want to see print advertisements, their website has a legacy page with them on there dating back to the 1890s.

Here are a few of them:

They also have the organizations they support as well!

Hope you enjoy these ad campaigns. Check back for more!

My Top 12 Super Bowl Ads

Well, I told you I would write a post containing my top advertisements for the Super Bowl and here they are. I put them in order starting with my all time favorite.

#1. The Force: Volkswagon

I like this one just because it is funny. It has a sort of character to it.

#2. Doritos: Man’s Best Friend

This one is just funny. I mean, the way the dog uses a bag of Doritos to keep his owners’ mouth shut about the cat.

#3. Budweiser: Hank the Clydesdale

This one shows some down-right determination and I like it. Also, I just love the Clydesdales.

#4. Bud Light: Here We Go

This one is just a cute dog commercial. Simple as that.

#5. Mars: MMS

This is the ad that started it all with the “naked” chocolate. It’s funny, yet simple.

#6. Volkswagon: The Dog Strikes Back

This car ad also shows some determination on the dog’s part. It is just adorable how the dog does everything in his power to get back in shape just to chase the new Volkswagon. I also like how in the end it flashes back to the Darth Vader (#1) commercial.

#7. Coca-Cola: Polar Bears

This one shows the notorious Coca-Cola polar bears being anxious about the game. And what helps him out but a nice, cold refreshing Coca-Cola.

#8. Coca-Cola: Polar Bears “Catch”

This is just a funny one with the polar bears. It goes with the previous one.

#9. Budweiser: Return of the King

This commercial displays the importance of Budweiser.

#10. Marvel: The Avengers

Because this is not your typical commercial for a company, I like it. It set the stage for The Avengers movie.

#11. E*Trade: Baby

This is the commercial that sparked the controversy with Lindsey Lohan. It is a good commercial and I think it will always be one the “greats”.

and lastly….

#12. Suzuki: Sled

This commercial, featuring 50 Cent, puts a whole new meaning on the new Suzuki.

I hope you liked these commercials as much as I did. I could watch them over and over again and still laugh. I am looking forward to see what this Super Bowl’s commercials will bring. (and who knows, maybe I will post my Top 10 from this year…)
