If you didn’t notice, this year’s Super Bowl commercials sucked! I hardly laughed at all. While seeing the Ford Fusion Hybrid commercial a million times along side it’s presence in Fox’s comedy series the New Girl, I started to throw my Super Bowl meal at the television screen. I think a lot of businesses decided to lay off buying commercial space this year or lacked effort to create a good one because of the Internet. I’ll just blame it on the Internet. Who needs funny commercials if you have social media creating memes to get us to laugh?
According to the Baltimore Business Journal, the best commercial aired during the Super Bowl wasn’t even shown to Baltimoreans. It was aired in Atlanta, Georgia for the promotion of Jamie Casino’s Law Firm. See the two minute commercial below.
This commercial was THE best commercial because it was the easiest to comprehend. A lot of commercials leave you having to decipher what they actually want from you. This one was clear and concise. Also, it served a great purpose and made me consider seeking Jamie’s services, though I don’t need it. It did what a commercial was suppose to do without glamorization, which is something the Ford Hybrid commercial did too much of.
Businesses that normally air their ads during the Super Bowl created a competition for themselves. It’s like they only care for who can make people laugh the hardest. The point is to get people to buy what you have. But it’s whatever. Super Bowl is over. The commercials sucked, except for Jamie Casino’s. Guess we shouldn’t get our hopes up for next year, huh?
