Super Bowl 2013: The Ads

 

It's that time of year again. The night in which football and advertising collide. According to Bloomberg Businessweek, "Rates for Super Bowl spots have climbed about 60 percent over the past decade, showing how much marketers value the chance to reach the largest TV audience. Last year’s game had 78 commercials and produced ad sales of $262.5 million..."  

Brands turned to television (and the internet) for football's biggest night,  and spent as much as $140,000 dolars per second for air time - a sum that can only be justified by the number of viewers and online buzz that generates only with an event such as this. Newcomers Oreo and Pistachios shared the spotlight with recurring participants such as Volkswagen and Go Daddy, who spurred up negative remarks due to what some considered as offensive spots.

From fans' submissions for the Doritos and Lincoln ads, to big productions with Kaley Cuoco and Stevie Wonder, this year was all about the pre-game strategy. "Social media has ushered in a new reality for marketers looking to play in the big game, and it’s allowing brands to create deeper narratives, engage fans earlier on and create greater buzz by releasing teasers and assets online before the event.", writes Rae Annfera for Co.Create.

Proving a universal rule: It still pays to pay.
