Aside from the fight between the New York Giants and the New England Patriots that are being anticipated anxiously by football fans everywhere for Super Bowl XLVI this coming February, another thing that is waited by fans is the commercials that are being aired during breaks. Even though each ad slot may cost millions of dollars, advertisers and companies alike are investing so much money for this because of the exposure that will be made, which can bring about millions of customers also, depending on the impact of the ad. So without further adieu, here are the top 10 list of the best Super Bowl Ads that will be seen on TV, as it was already peeked at in YouTube.
Super Bowl Ads 2012
If you think Bridgestone is only about cars and performance tires, then you can expect more from this ad. In fact, as the ad says, Bridgestone is taking its passion and technology beyond the road, and bringing their products in the world of sports. Just imagine a basketball, football, bowling ball, and puck created with rubber that has the grip, the lightness, robustness, and strength of a tire. Sports news anchors are absolutely dumbfounded that even Dick Vitale or Michelle Beadle of ESPN can’t even say a word…
9. Wheat Thins
Stewie and Brian of “The Family Guy” become the stars of this year’s Wheat Thins ad, where these two are doing what they always do in the show: fighting. At first, you have that feeling that they would crack up those argumentative lines they always do, but the ad shows a unique argument of its own… as to why there is so much emphasis on the “H” mentioning Wheat Thins, making it sound like HuWHEAT Thins, which knocks out everyone who watches it. What’s more interesting is that it is as if you are being magnetized with the word “HuWHEAT Thins” being stated over and over.
The ad has a bit of nostalgia in it, especially since William Shatner is playing a dying role in this commercial where he helps all the passengers in a bus that as about to fall. It can be symbolic in many ways, such as Shatner playing his last commercial here, which makes the company move on with new concepts for Priceline. Also, you may have to ask in the end, “is booking cheap for hotels that essential that it may save or cost you your life in the end”?
This ad has a slap of reality in it, making viewers think of the best days of their life. It may be college graduation, but what makes it even better is the fact that they will receive amazing gifts for all their hardwork and perseverance in finishing their education. Rewards can be as simple as a family dinner or as complicated as a Chevy, which makes graduates go loco and think that the future is ahead of them.
In tradition of the many commercials that have gone before this, many ads have been using Star Wars as a way of attracting so many viewers of all ages, kids or adults alike. With Brisk however, Star Wars become cute as it features Yoda and a talkative “Darth Maul” getting all messed up because he does not have the right energy that makes him one with The Force. But with seeping all that Brisk from a broken soda dispenser got him popping, which Yoda stopped with a simple “smash”.
Okay, since when did lizards have the chance to save your life with insurance products for your property and other assets? If you think you are so caught up with what GEICO has in store for its customers, you can even be surprised of their Super Bowl ad with a peculiar concept. Just think about it: What is a zip-lining Maxwell the Pig has to do with GEICO? And talk about that Weeeeeeeeeeeeehhh, where he states it’s a rush of pure adrenaline… Got you puzzled huh?
Audi is a vehicle known for their powerful and innovative concepts of headlights that can make you see the evening road as light as day. And with them taking the Super Bowl slot, Audi has just created a funny interpretation of how powerful their headlights are. It is as mighty as daylight that it can make a whole bunch of partying vampires blown to a pulp with just a glare of the car’s lights, ruining a Twighlight-ish setup with the tree climbing and the bonfire singing, and all that movie wahoo.
As you view this commercial from LG, it could give you an impression that it may be featuring either a TV or a cellular phone maybe, thanks to capturing photos of a sexy model. However, as the camera-shooting session gets longer, you can become puzzled as to why there is a man holding a tube behind the woman, and making that familiar sucking sound. What will make you laugh is that a vacuum cleaner is used to compress all that extra bulge, and I mean EXTRA BULGE, that the model must hide in order to make the shoot successful. Pretty neat and powerful for a vacuum cleaner huh?
2. Day Off 2
Despite that this video is just on for 10 seconds flat, it has garnered as much as 3,950,083 views in YouTube to date all because of two things: Ferris Bueller and “day off”. Looks like this ad has done its best intention of making viewers anticipate of what will come out in the Super Bowl commercials.
We have seen a young Darth Vader interacting with a Volkswagen Jetta while using the force. This year, the German car company is keeping its tradition alive, but this time, touching on the Bark Side of the Force where dogs becomes stars and barking at a familiar tune which will make you laugh and even think that the ad is cute. Dogs that resemble Darth Vader, Jar Jar Binks, Princess Leia, C3PO, Ewoks, Chewbacca, and even Jabba the Hut , Luke Skywalker, and Obi-wan Kenobi can be seen here.
