How do we fix super bowl commercials?
Hard mode: No British people saying get rid of them and fund it with government dole.
I have to say that my theory about why they suck so bad is the price for the ads have gotten too damn high and should be an NFL draft for ads so they can spend budget on the actual ad itself.
5 million for the cost of the ad and 100k for the actual ad is retarded. Lets cap the ads at 2 million an ad, give the advertising firms a random lottery at it and then the other 2 million can go to paying for the ad.
>tfw I like that ad and would wreck Mirren
I made a bet that the first commercial after kickoff was going to be a beer commercial. As soon as I saw a bunch of people working out, I got my wallet out, but then all of a sudden a dude opens a beer? What? I mean, I was super excited to win, but who the fuck associates exercise with beer?
Every fuck commercial me and my brother would be guessing what they were for until the last 5 seconds when they revealed a car or something.
All shit this year 0 remembered.
Except that one where the chick called the car gay. That car was ugly as fuck would not buy.
>tfw drove drunk last night and did it today coming home from the super bowl party
More Trump presidential campaign ads
More WWE ads
More ads with Roman Reigns
More ads with cucks
More ads that are good
Commercials haven't always been good/great, but it's no longer something that commands our attention. They figured out they could flash whatever product at the last 5 seconds, put a meaningful collage of meandering bullshit that is gonna try to trend on twitter, and let social networking do the job for them. You won't have actual effort in this environment due to that along with the money issue.
Right now, the only thing really trending from the superbowl not bout the actual game itself was Lady Gaga blowing everyone away. They don't really utilize twitter very well, they utilize the media well who need to find something to report on so they do the obligatory "best worst" lists and all that stuff.
If you want to "fix" adds, it's going to be all those boring changes that isn't just "make it more funny/meta". We are frankly over saturated with advertisements. Less is more. Want to know the most effective superbowl ad in the last 5 years? Pic related. It's timely, effective, and seized an opportunity, and cost next to nothing and it was what most people talked about. Unfortunately you won't get that anymore.
The problem with ads this year iqhmo, was that they were trying to cater to youtube. They preview them online or build them up online. Then they give you 30 second ad and expect you to see more online. Which is good, however there weren't any really big or cinematic ads, aside from the astronaut one and the hulk/antman one. So it felt like any other day for ads.
You should be asking how you fix your sport.
When they main attraction of its showpiece event is the adverts, you've got problems.
I don't give a fuck how 'clever' and 'well done' they are, it's grubby jews trying to sell you shit and constantly interrupting the sport, adverts are the part where you switch over. Well, in the non-retarded world, e can only hope you reach that some day.
>When they main attraction of its showpiece event is the adverts
They're really not. They may be what pull in non-sports fans, but everyone else is there for the game.
But hey, who am I to argue with a country whose favorite sport is watching a bunch of foreigners jog back and forth.
>Do millennials want a totalitarian police state where no one is allowed to do bad things like hurt the environment, be mean to them, or pay them less than 2000 dollars a month for doing nothing?
never understood why Americans fall for the "WATCH THE AMAZING OWL ADS" schtick.
YFW you realize it was advertising hype hyping the advertisements all along.
Because hollywood is always trying to appeal to the "youth", and American youth hate themselves because America caused all the problems in the world, and oppresses people EVERY DAY, and WHY THE FUCK AREN'T YOU DOING ANYTHING TO HELP, TEXT THIS RANDOM NUMBER TO STOP DOMESTIC ABUSE!!!11!!
I hate college students.
It will never be like the old days.
>old spice LOL SO RANDUM XD brand of trying too hard to be funny
>Pay attention to our cause you racist misogynist
>hey baby boomers remember this?
>network plugs their god awful shows
>whoa dude we made this phone/tv/car/dragon dildo AS THIN AS A SHEET OF PAPER!!
In Canada we always hear of the fabled Superbowl commercials with crazy high production values, and jam packed with celebrities. But we get commercials for President's Choice new line of internationally inspired poutines, and Home Hardware home owners helping home owners.
>STOP DOMESTIC ABUSE
And where can I call if my gf nags? Nagging is a far greater problem than women killed by DV.
