If ever an evening of TV commercials prove that marketers are struggling and disconnected from their audience last night proved it to me. At $4.t million dollars per 30 second commercial it was a complete waste of most company’s money.
In an age where people avoid disruptive advertising, the Super Bowl as one of the only times to actually watch commercials.
In the past Super Bowl were iconic, hilarious and memorable. Last night I can only remember three commercials and they hit mark for me.
Two were by Doritos, the Fiat / little blue pill and one was a Ted 2 movie trailer featuring Tom Brady.
Check out the 2015 Super Bowl commercials:
The rest were boring, flat and just uninspiring.
In fact, we commented by halftime all we had really seen were car or truck commercials or movie trailers.
You have to know your audience and the marketers blew it big time! There are watch parties that exist for only one reason, watch the commercials.
The Super Bowl audience wants funny, light-hearted and rememberable commercials. The purpose of a Super Bowl ad is to be memorable and frankly there are fewer and fewer memorable ads every year.
Who remembers the polar bears with the Coca-Cola commercials?
Or the little boy dressed as Darth Vader stopping the car?
Why Did So Many Super Bowl Commercials Miss the Mark and Are You?
If you’re going to run one $4.5 million dollar advertisement you better make it count!
