Ok, I realise we’re a bit late this one (around a month late if we’re honest) but hey, we’ve been busy, so don’t judge!
As I’m sure you’re all aware, the Super Bowl 2013 took place at the beginning of February and as usual, it attracted more than its fair share of creative, funny and downright crazy adverts from some of the world’s most well-known companies.
I watched most of these ads on YouTube (I’m not really into sport) and I have to say, they were so funny that I watched a handful of them over and over again.
So, I thought I’d take a moment to share some of my favourites with you; our loyal blog readers. Enjoy.
#1 – Doritos – Goat 4 Sale
I wouldn’t like to imagine what Doritos’ executives thought when they were presented with this crazy ad concept as I’m pretty sure that it was far from what they were expecting to hear.
Nonetheless, I for one am thankful that the executives were somehow persuaded to go with it as for me, it goes down as one of the best Super Bowl ads of all time.
There’s no point me trying to explain what happens, just watch it and see. All I will say is that it contains a screaming goat, some Doritos and a bearded man; all the right ingredients for a successful ad then.
#2 – Volkswagen – Get In. Get Happy
Some people criticised this ad saying that it was racist; it was even debated about on ABC news (which truthfully, I think was all part of the plan) but personally, I think it’s one of the cleverest, funniest ads ever produced. Period.
Again, it’s not the easiest concept to explain but if you’re having a bad day, sit back, grab yourself a cup of “wicked coffee” and watch it now; it really will help you to “turn de frown de other way around”.
#3 – OREO – Whisper Fight
Oreo attracted a lot of attention during the Super Bowl but strangely, very little of it was because of their Whisper Fight ad (see here what it was for).
If you’ve ever argued about the best part of an Oreo with your friends (no, I haven’t either so don’t worry, you’re not alone) then you’ll be able to relate to this ad. Even if you haven’t though, it’s quite easily one of the best, and possibly also one of the quietest Super Bowl ads of 2013.
#4 – GoDaddy – Perfect Match
Despite getting more “dislikes” than “likes” on YouTube, this ad proved hugely effective as GoDaddy actually posted their most successful sales day in history shortly after the initial airing of the ad.
Personally, I think the concept is genius but obviously, some people disagree. GoDaddy’s ads have been described as being like Marmite; you either love them or hate them. What’s your opinion?
