Super Bowl Commercials 2013

It is that time again, the big game has been played and many advertising dollars went towards commercials. This year on CBS the price for 30 seconds of ad time was $3.7 – $3.8 million, with an expected audience of over 100 million viewers. I only watch the game for the commercials, and was kind of disappointed again this year. Coke did not have any cute ads this year, the one with the security cameras was good but the race one was not. But there were funny commercials not featuring cute animals which I enjoyed (my favorite of those ads was from Oreo).

The game actually surprised me. The power outage was a bit crazy but even though I did not care which team won the plays were amazing and the game was really close by the end. I do wonder if the blackout caused problems with which ad spots aired when, as there seemed to be a set of commercials aired twice in a row.

Here are a list of my favorite cute commercials:

1. Sketchers – “Man vs. Cheetah”

I have always loved Cheetahs, and gazelles, so this one makes the list. I love the wink from the gazelle.

2. –  “Wolf”

A wolf puppy! How can I not include this one?

3. Toyota RAV4 – “Wish Granted”

So this ad does not feature that many cute animals, but the dog and talking squirrels are great. Plus the commercial is really funny and much better than a lot of the ads overall.

4. Kia Sorento – “Space Babies”

Featuring cute baby animals and a funny-ish ending assures that this ad makes my list.

5. Doritos – “Goat 4 Sale”

I thought this one was funny and the goat was cute. In my opinion the Doritos commercials from the past couple years have been really interesting and inventive – I look forward to them each year.

6. Budweiser – “Brotherhood”

This was my favorite commercial! A great emotional story complete with baby Clydesdale. I could not have asked for more from this commercial, and a major plus given the brand’s other strange ads which ran multiple times during the game.

You can find all the commercials on youtube at adBlitz.

Cute Super Bowl Commercials 2011

I am kind of disappointed this year with the commercials. Most of the commercials were really well put together and funny, but there were not many (if any really) cute commercials.

Here are some of the cute commercials from the game:

Bridgestone – karma

Volkswagon – Black Beetle

Volkswagon – The Force – Parking Lot

Coca-Cola – The Seige

Doritos – Pug Attack

Super Bowl Commercials!

Yesterday I watched the adorable Puppy Bowl on Animal Planet, and then I watched the Super Bowl…mainly to see the commercials.

The Puppy Bowl was so cute! I loved watching the puppies and the different camera shots gave more interest to it. The bunny cheerleaders who just sat on the sidelines were very comical, as were the hamsters “flying” the Twizzlers’ blimp. Even better was that they replayed the “game,” so I got to watch it before the Super Bowl started and again after it was over!

There were not that many commercials featuring cute animals, but there were many funny ones that contain cute stars. Here are the cutest commercials that I saw this Super Bowl:

1. Doritos: Underdog

2. E*Trade Baby with Girlfriend

3. fiddling Beaver

4. Coca-Cola – Sleepwalker

5. Kia Sorento

6. And of course, Budweiser had another cute commerical about their Clydesdale horses:
