What Was Your Favorite Super Bowl Commercial?
Seinfeld will do anything to be the first person to get the new Acura NSX. Too bad he doesn't have a jet pack like Leno!
Audi “Vampire Party”
Watch out Edward Cullen. Audi is coming for you!
Honda “Matthew’s Day Off”
"Ferris Bueller" nostalgia, anyone? Anyone?
Hyundai “All For One”
An a capella rendition of the "Rocky" theme song. What's not to love?
Volkswagon “The Bark Side”
These dogs can really bark!
Volkswagon “The Dog Strikes Back”
Another cute Volkswagon/dog/"Star Wars" combination.
Sketchers "Mr. Quiggly"
Animal rights activists were upset by the portrayal of greyhound racing in this ad, but Mr. Quiggly is so cute he's hard to resist!
Chrysler “It’s Half Time in America”
Clint Eastwood picks up where Eminem left off last year.
Chevy Silverado “2012”
If you're worried about the end of the Mayan calendar you'd better buy yourself a Chevy Silverado!
Bud Light “Rescue Dog”
Yet another cute canine commercial! This time featuring an actual rescue dog.
Doritos “Sling Baby”
This flying baby makes me hungry for Doritos!
Toyota “It’s Reinvented”
If only these "reinventions" were real!
This year, advertisers spent an average of $3.5 million per 30-second ad spot. Though the ads themselves played on familiar themes (celebrities, animals, nostalgia, sex appeal, etc.), 2012 ushered in a new trend for Super Bowl commercials.
About 20 of the 36 advertisers released previews and/or full versions of their commercials in the days leading up to Sunday’s broadcast. This is a huge increase from the handful of ads that were “leaked” early last year. While the advance releases received millions of views and certainly generated lots of buzz online, some of the ads may have been more effective if the element of surprise had been preserved.
