5 Awesome Super Bowl Ads: The Best of 2012By Diana Cook
Super Bowl XLVI was one of the best in recent memory. The action on the field was downright riveting. If you used the commercial breaks to actually take a break from the screen, and are afraid you’ve missed some of the best ads of the evening, not to worry, we’ve pulled our five favorites from last night’s game.
Vampire Drives an Audi
We know, vampires have been done to death. But we still like this Audi ad from Venables Bell & Partners of San Francisco. Shot beautifully and with a bit of misdirection,the highlights Audi’s LED headlights. Not to mention, the 2013 Audi S7 is a gorgeous car to look at.
Monkeys Coworkers in Careerbuilder’s Super Bowl 2012 Commercial
Almost everyone can relate to annoying coworkers and yes, this isn’t the first time CareerBuilder.com has exploited that fact. And did we mention there are monkeys doing cute things?
Bud Light #HereWeGo Rescue Dog
A rescue dog? Budweiser, nothing melts our hearts more. And judging from the twitter activity surrounding this ad, others must agree.
Seinfeld Wants an Acura
Ha! Rich, entitled people and their problems are so amusing. Okay, maybe not so much, but we still enjoyed the ad for the Acura NSX. It was fast paced, peppered with jokes and had a nice reveal at the end.
Ferris Bueller Calls in Sick and Drives a Honda
Matthew Broderick plays hooky like his character Ferris Bueller did in the classic film ‘Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.’ With more than two dozen references to the film, this ad is worth giving a second look. We have the two minute internet version.
So those are our favorites. If you’d like to check out more Super Bowl ads, our friends over at TheFW.com have pulled together all the available video commercials from the 2012 game.
