1. Pick a classic film from childhood.
2. What if it was 90 sec long?
3. Imagine the actor is the same age they’re now.
4. Stick in product placement.
5. Congratulations, you’re a creative
Best - NFL: Take it to the House, kid; Google. Worst - Michelob (Beer in its organic form? Yikes). Get Fucked - Planters. Stupid Fact - Olay spot taught me that there’s a human being named “Busy”.
Can't stop thinking about how big of an opportunity Snickers missed with the "Chefs" being in the Superbowl. While everyone else was pre-releasing their spots...
Half the ads could have worked, if not worked better, without star power. Can we start a non celeb ad Super Bowl 55?
For me, it was Google, Alexa, Jeep, Pringle’s, NFL / Walmart tie. Very few insights this year. Lots of borrowed interest, and A LOT of ads that shouldn’t have been in the game.
Loved Little Caesars, Cheetos and Google. Tide took a big step backwards from last year. Vayner should be ashamed of that poorly executed lazy, predictable Planters spot.
Best - Jeep/Rocket Mortgage (Mamoa)
Worst - Olay/ Michelob Missed OP - Coke Energy (really odd)
We do a lot of self promoting, so to do something a lil bit different. Shout out to all the people who worked their ass off to make these spots. You’re the real MVPs
Halftime show. Everyone focused on the dancing and their tiny outfits and missed the Hispanic kids in cages on the field and JLo singing “Born In the USA” while holding the Puerto Rican flag. Badass
WORST: Michelob (wtf?)
MISSED OP: Olay
Hi! Is this where we talk about The Masked Singer?
The meters and polls will land where they may, but I think there’s a case to be made that Google had the best ad, and Jeep had the best Super Bowl ad.
That was fun. Now back to the grind.
I just saw the Facebook spot and was laughing so hard at the logo at the end. That's freaking humongous.
I think the best ad was Applebee’s with Robert Palmer’s Simply Irresistible as the song and all the pictures of salads. Love the font they used. Very clever.
Every producer and BA manager nightmare. Bill Murray appearing in the Jeep SB spot. Now every creative will pitch using him.
thanks to all the CCOs & ECDs for putting up with our shit and sarcasm - we wouldnt have been posting if it wasnt for you posting openly ✌️
Thank you people of Fishbowl. Signing off.
Jeep spot is tops. Do you think they had to leave Bill a message on his machine to get him on board?
This was fun! Thanks!
Killing Mr.Peanut stolen from Bud Light last year. Baby nut = baby Yoda. The other spots were awful. Oy, Vayner. Enough.
Ok! Where’s the Fishbowl after party?
Thank you all for the Super Bowl Bowl!
Dude next to me pissed because he bet on Green Gatorade to be dumped on the winning coach. 600:1
Overall, this SB was just like many SBs, nothing truly remarkable happened. Nothing that moves the industry forward happened. No innovation happened. Some fun was had but the game was best. Onward!
Thanks all for a great night! Congrats to KC!!
Andy Reid’s mustache is a close second to Sam Elliott’s in the Doritos spot. He can start dancing!
Creativity is the soul of advertising and branding. The true test of what we’ve seen tonight will be judged on what pushes our industry forward. What we celebrate years from now.
Fishbowlers, I’ve reached the bottom of my Honey Jack Arnold Palmer. It was fun chopping it up with you. Be inspired & get your spot on the game in 2021!
In other news, KC!!! Wow.
Jeep, so many great dots connected. Culture, celeb usage, timely with Groundhog Day, entertainment.
