A new tradition of mine (since last year) is to watch all of the super bowl ads. You might just find the next best commercial of all time.
I just finished watching all the ads and wanted to share the ones that connected to me the most.
Pepsi – King’s Court
This one was the most moving for me. There’s something about standing up to oppression and giving a voice to the oppressed that is truly inspiring.
The X Factor winner Melanie Amaro has a powerful voice and is surprisingly grounded.
This is my second favorite. I love how it’s playing off the idea that the year 2012 is the end of the world.
I also enjoyed the shout out to Twinkies. It’s like they are saying “Twinkies will keep coming despite the end of the world.”
Audi Vampire Party
I like the humor on this. It’s playing on the hot topic of vampires right now and it’s well done.
The problem I have with it is that the feature that it’s highlighting is something I despise. Who likes driving down the road and being blinded by a car with LED lights?
I think it’s a safety hazard and should be illegal.
Okay, so besides my annoyance with bright, blinding lights, I was very impressed. There were a lot of great ads and I love how the VW made a shout out to their awesome 2011 super bowl ad.
One great takeaway I have from watching the super bowl ads this year is that I am cutting my ties to Go Daddy. I don’t want to associate myself with a company who is obviously trying to attract porn sites.
It’s going to cost a pretty penny to transfer my 20+ domains, but it’s worth it. I don’t want to support a business that supports porn.
Question: What is your favorite 2012 super bowl ad and why?
