Pepsi Max "I'm Good" SuperBowl Commercial

The new Pepsi Max "I'm Good" commercial was just released in what seems to have become the norm for the SuperBowl ads, being made available well before the Super Bowl is even played. As funny as the Pepsi "I'm Good" ad is I can't agree that it is very original, while you are watching the spot keep the Budweiser "Dude" commercial in mind.

Troy Polamalu Super Bowl Mean Joe Greene Coke Zero Commercial

Troy Polamalu stars in the remake of the classic Mean Joe Greene Coke commercial for the Super Bowl. Mean Troy for Coke Zero.

Created by the ad agency Crispin Porter & Bogusky.
Steelers' Troy Polamalu shares his thoughts on his acting, football and making the Coke Zero commercial. How ironic, a behind the scenes look at the making of the new Coke Zero spot which will air during the same game Troy will take the field for!

Peta Banned Super Bowl Commercial

Peta takes NBC for a ride with their new ad. Make no mistake about it Peta knew that NBC would never allow this ad to air during the Super Bowl. Now they take the hype and run.

Steve Hall at AdGabber had some great thoughts on the Peta Super Bowl spot:
PETA contends NBC's response to their ad had "PETA bigwigs blushing like beets." Um, right. More like they were fist bumping each other and laughing at how NBC just fell right into their trap.

In response to PETA's ad, NBC VP of Standards Victoria Morgan wrote, "the PETA spot submitted to Advertising Standards depicts a level of sexuality exceeding our standards," it portrays one actor "screwing herself with broccoli" and another with "asparagus on her lap appearing as if it is ready to be inserted into her."

Is everyone blushing now? Right. Didn't think so. This is tiring.

Of course an ad like this would never be allowed to appear in the Super Bowl. PETA knew it. NBC could have just ignored the whole thing or just one lined it with, "this ad is not acceptable" without lengthy explanation.

Doesn't NBC understand PETA played them? That a trap was clearly set and NBC walked straight into it?

The whole strategy, of course, is to contend NBC allows ads for unhealthy junk food from the lies of KFC but won't allow ads encouraging, in PETA's opinion, a healthier lifestyle. Well, PETA, how about an ad that just said that instead of an ad which depicts women having sex with vegetable?

Denny's Super Bowl Commercial Preview "Thugs"

Denny's gets into the Super Bowl Ads game for the first time with a 30 second spot that will air during the third quarter. The spot is narrated by Burt Reynolds and as the title suggests; "Thugs" the Denny's commercial is going to have a Soprano's feel to it.

clip via: AdGabber
The commercial was directed by the Perlorian Brothers (good ole Canadian boys) for the advertising agency Goodby, Silverstein & Partner. This is actually the one commercial I'm really looking forward to seeing on Super Bowl Sunday.

More of the Same Old Go Daddy Super Bowl Ads

Go Daddy "Baseball" and Go Daddy "Shower" commercials created for the 2009 Super Bowl with Danica Patrick. Seriously is it just me or are the GoDaddy Super Bowl spots getting old and well sorry Go Daddy they are boring, how about some originality for a change.
For those who like the commercials here they are. Enjoy.

Go Daddy Girl Danica Patrick in the shower.

Go Daddy Girl Danica Patrick reveals "enhancements".

Pedigree First Ever Super Bowl Ad

Pedigree gets into the Super Bowl Ad game with their first commercial to ever air during the much loved Super Bowl. The Pet food marketer is known for ads that tug at our heartstrings, for the Super Bowl they are going for laughs, and this spot accomplishes just that.

For its first Super Bowl commercial, Pedigree goes for laughs to highlight the role pets play in our lives. The 30-second ad, which will run during the first quarter of Super Bowl XLIII, imagines life with wild animals instead of dogs: a dog sticking its head out the car window is replaced with a wild boar, and rather than a pup chasing the mailman, it's an ostrich, this one should make the top 10 ads of the game on the ads meter.

Cadbury The EyeBrow Commercial

Coke Open Happiness Commercial Heist and Avatar

The new Coca-Cola Open Happiness commercials are as always simply fantastic. Created by Wieden + Kennedy, the Coke spot below which will air during the Super Bowl gives me shivers, it is just one of those feel good spots.

Just got the info on the music for the Open Happiness spot: the soundtrack for the spot features a cover of Elvis Presley's 1970 hit "Stranger in the Crowd," by Gnarls Barkley's Cee-Lo.
The second spot, "Heist," features music from "Peter and the Wolf," conducted by Robert Miller and performed by the Los Angeles Philharmonic. In the 60-second spot, a man dozes off in a park only to have insects scheme to make off with his Coke.

Super Bowl XLIII Ads Coke and CareerBuilder

Th hype surrounding the Super Bowl Ads in past years just hasn't seemed to happen like in past Super Bowls. Steve Hall of Ad Gabber recently mentioned on his site that the hype hasn't happened yet and was wondering if it would, when CareerBuilder sent him the commercial they will be airing during the 2009 Super Bowl, well done Steve.

The spot was created by the ad agency Wieden + Kennedy, and in typical CareerBuilder style it's about all the things we hate about our jobs and how we might consider changing jobs.

Coca-Cola Open Happiness Campaign Debuts During The Super Bowl
The Coke vs. Pepsi cola war heat up for the Super Bowl, Pepsi has managed to keep Coke out of the first half entirely by buying up all the first half ad space. But in an effort to capture a younger generation and consumer tastes, one of Coca-Cola's three Super Sunday ads will feature fast-growing, no-calorie Coke Zero, not Classic Coke.

Having the Pittsburgh Steelers in the game turned out to be huge bonus for the Zero ad: It features Steelers star safety Troy Polamalu.

"We're thrilled about Troy, and we're thrilled about the Steelers. … (It's) going to be a powerful spot in the game," said Katie Bayne, North American chief marketing officer, as she and other executives on Wednesday introduced Coke's new global ad campaign with the theme "Open Happiness."

The Coke Zero ad and two Coca-Cola ads will air in the second half. The two Coke ads, include one in which insects try to steal a bottle of Coke from a young man sleeping in a park. The other, a man walks through a city and people around him turn into computer avatars.

Miller High Life Beer 1 Second Ads Super Bowl Commercials

Miller High Life has decided that spending 3 million dollars to advertise during the Super Bowl was just too much. Instead their Super Bowl ads will be one-second television spots during Super Bowl XLIII. The ads, which feature the brands popular deliveryman, hope to reinforce High Lifes commitment to brewing a good, honest beer at a great price. Miller has also launched a website to compliment the 1 second Super Bowl ad campaign, 1 second ad com.

Miller High Life is all about high quality and great value, so it wouldnt make sense for this brand to pay $3 million for a 30-second ad, said High Life Senior Brand Manager Kevin Oglesby. Just like our consumers, High Life strives to make smart choices. One second should be plenty of time to remind viewers that Miller High Life is common sense in a bottle.

The Super Bowl ads were created by Saatchi and Saatchi, NY and this is a brilliant advertising campaign, we expect no less from Saatchi.

Rejected Super Bowl XLIII Ads Ashley Madison

The Super Bowl XLIII ads and commercial frenzy has begun, one of many Super Bowl ads to be rejected is this for Ashley
Noel Biderman, CEO of, told CNBC that his ad was eventually rejected and was specifically told that the company wouldn't be allowed to advertise in any NFL game program until the end of time.

NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said that no one in the league office actually ever saw the ad. "After realizing what the site was, the sales rep called back and told the company there was a mistake and that his company could not sell an ad to the site."

Biderman thinks his inability to advertise is hypocritical.

"I find the rejection to be ridiculous given that a huge percentage of the NFL's marketing content is for products like alcohol, which they sell in their stadiums, promote on their air and clearly have in the magazine," Biderman said. "That's a product that literally kills tens of thousands of people each year. So if the NFL is worried about legislating behavior and regulating what their audience should be exposed to then it should start with a ban on all alcohol advertising and products being sold, not", a Canadian company, has been in existence for seven years, but has only been advertising in the U.S. for about a year and half.

"We don't intend to let this pass," Biderman said. "This is our core audience and we will find a way to let them know about the existence of this service."

There are even some rumors that is a preview for a SuperBowl XLIII 43 commercial for LeBron playing football.
Let's just hope that on January 18, 2009 this Lebron James' commercial is something out of this world.

Gatorade What Is "G" Commercial

Lil' Wayne narrates a 60 second TV spot for the newly designed Gatorade beverage, titled What Is G?

In the new commercial for the popular Gatorade sports drink, Lil' Wayne defines the meaning of what "g" represents, with sports figures like Dwayne Wade, Serena Williams, Derek Jeter, Muhammad Ali, and Bill Russell glare into the camera.
Other notable athletes in the Gatorade commercial include: Serena Williams, Jabbawockeez, Dwyane Wade, Kerri Walsh, Misty May-Treanor, John Carlos, Tommie Smith, Jessica Mendoza, Derek Jeter, Chaz Ortiz, Muhammad Ali, The Goat, and Candace Parker
"[G's] the emblem of a warrior, it's the swagger of an athlete, a champion and dynasty," Weezy says in the commercial. "It's gifted, golden, genuine and glorious. It is a lower-case god. It's the goat. Ha-ha. The greatest of all time."
Aiming for a new look, Gatorade's parent company, PepsiCo, is using the new "G" campaign as an opportunity to create new packaging and rename line extensions.
"For Gatorade," the company wrote in a statement, "G represents the heart, hustle and soul of athleticism and will become a badge of pride for anyone who sweats."

Lactacyd Commercial - Through the Eyes of A Womans...

GlaxoSmithKline is launching a TV campaign for their Lactacyd female hygiene brand, encouraging women to protect themselves everyday.The commercial unlike any I have ever seen before is filmed entirely from the vantage point of a vagina. We, the viewers are treated to the daily life of a woman though her most personal space of all in an effort to drive sales of its female hygiene brand Lactacyd.

Creative team behind this ad: Seyoan Vela, Colin Lamberton and directed by Robert Nylund.
The TV campaign, is to air in the Netherlands, was created Grey Amsterdam. The ad is aimed at overcoming the perception among women in the Netherlands that Lacatacyd is for problems only, in an attempt to encourage women to adopt the brand in their daily routine.
Elisa Beenakker, a creative at Grey Amsterdam, said: "This commercial takes Lactacyd from feeling like a medical product to feeling like an essential part of a woman's personal care routine.

The BK Whopper Sacrifice

The BK Whopper Sacrifice, a new Facebook app from Burger King and their friends, is simply a coupon delivery tool for a free Whopper. In typical Crispin Porter + Bogusky (advertising agency who created the campaign) style, they hit a nerve. This nerve, is the one pinched by Facebook users you don't know, but who want to be your friend.
"Friendship is strong, but a BK Whopper is Stronger".
The idea of the Whopper Sacrifice: Use this application and be rewarded with a free flame-broiled Whopper when you sacrifice 10 of your facebook friends. To date 390, 333 friends have been giving up and the total is rising fast.

Brian Morrissey of Adweek writes,

The notion of dumping friends in exchange for a burger could offend some, though Crispin has not shied from controversy with BK. Jeff Benjamin, executive interactive creative director, said the agency and client were careful to make the application lighthearted rather than "vindictive."

"The [friend] removal is another kind of socializing," he said. "At first you think it's antisocial, but it's a social device. Now we finally have something to talk about."

Toyota Scion Samples xB TV Spot Commercial

Toyota Scion commercial...Scion "Samples"

I love what David Gianatasio wrote about the new Toyota Scion commercial via:
This Attik spot for Toyota's Scion tries to break free of car-ad category cliches. There are no gleaming vehicles racing along scenic highways at sunset. Nor do shapely beach babes recline across hoods. What we get, however, isn't an improvement. The whole thing consists of quick-cut, high-tech graphics that illustrate the many choices a Scion buyer could make in terms of vehicle colors and detailing. True, I'm not part of the hip, young demographic being targeted. But I can afford to buy a car. And this spot doesn't make me want to investigate Scion. We get commercial cliches all right -- plucked straight from the past 15 years of computer and home-electronics ads. There's even Kraftwerk-esque robotic dance music on the soundtrack. And that can't be hip or young, if only because I kind of liked it. In fact, though it's designed to look cool and futuristic, the whole enterprise feels old-hat and dull, like footage cut from Disney's Tron. (Which is making a comeback, apparently, so maybe this ad is cool after all.) I still say: Bring back the sunsets and beach babes. They really weren't so bad.

And through the 12 recessions since they've noticed that after the fears subside, a funny thing happens. People start enjoying the small things in life. It's back to basics, And the basics are good, Protect them, Put them in good hands.
