2015 Superbowl Commercial Thread

Recommended Posts

The last few years have really seemed blah overall on the commercials. Will this year bring back the "Heyday" there used to be?

So far the only one i've seen is the new Doritos Fan Commercial, with a guy (Mike Birbiglia) on a plane. Looks pretty funny, and so true.

Don't know if it will be on the big show, but the new KFC vs rotisserie chicken on I saw today is cute. I miss the old Budweiser frogs and lizards....and especially the loss of the Clydesdales since Bud sold.

I must have watched the Budweiser and Dove Care for men commercials during a big dust blowup or pollen outbreak. For some reason my eyes started to water. Both well done. The Snickers/Brady Bunch is great too.

There used to be a term of art in boilerplate film production: "Jep Factor" which referred the fact that you must put the heroine of the story in jeopardy for the script to fly. 'Puppy Jep' Factor a little too strained in that one.

While looking for something else, I find controversy about the aired Jeep Liberty commercial featuring "This Land Is Your Land":

I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say I don't think it would have bothered Woody in the least.

Woody didn't like fascists

None of those fellow travelers did.....:wink:

There was always a strong effort to keep the Communist affiliations of guys like Guthrie on the down-low. Singing about the oppressed in "this land" but ignoring or papering (looking at you New York Times) it over elsewhere.

But class politics aside...the real political dumbness of the SB commercials was the Always commercial. Seriously. And, the ad wizards seem to have fully embraced feminist dogma that SB Sunday is the worst day for domestic abuse of the year.

TurboTax reducing the entire American Revolution to the issue of how hard it is to file income tax. Dumb and offensive. As offensive as telling us how wonderful taxes are because they tell you about your year. good commercials about tax prep would highlight that effective tax prep can reduce the amount of lucre sent to pay for lazy people to make babies. /JK

I thought it was extremely ineffective - pretty dumb really - waste of good production values. It was a PSA for accident prevention, but it tried to be clever and hide that until the very end, and by that time they didn't take time to actually tell you anything at all of value to help prevent accidents or more importantly - make a case for why some action of *YOURS* was going to be the one that matters - it got left sitting there as the typical 'somebody else's problem' problem.

As far as Nationwide is concerned, it IS someone else's problem. They're not really concerned that some children die preventable deaths. They just wanted to scare people into worrying about it so they'll buy life insurance for their kids, you know, just in case.

A commercial playing fast and loose with a historical event to make (an admittedly weak) tie in to their product?

Shocking.

If Nationwide had any guts they would have used Whitney Houston and Bobbie Brown's daughter in that ad.
