Arizona (Storch Report) — I reviewed 38 Super Bowl ads, some of which were Gorilla marketing stunts capturing attention by cheating and inflating the promotion of their products outside of the rules and I will not promote such practices out of NFL principals, but I did select four ads worthy of your attention this Sunday.
Coming in first was the lost dog Budweiser commercial with a puppy and four Clydesdale horses — those horses seem to work every year and when you add a pup how can you go wrong.
In second place was Carl’s Jr natural hamburger ad with model Charlotte McKinney in her all natural or nearly naked prancing through a farmer’s market while eyes devour her and she devours a Carl’s Jr burger; sex sells, especially with a hamburger. Did you notice the burger?
And, to follow-up with that premise, the Victoria Secret ad — not the one with girls playing football, they can’t — the sexy lingerie ad where they make better moves in delicate bras and panties than on the football field in uniforms, came in third.
Coming in fourth was No More . . . Domestic Violence, a powerful 911 message. I’ll bet the NFL had something to do with this one, without deflating a point?
There are some other ads that are worthy of mention: BMW’s electric car was rather quiet; Mercedes, using sex is not as classy as their cars; Pretty Woman was better than Mindy Kaling’s Nationwide ad; Skittles teaser ad too short to taste; Lobby Hobby’s ad needs a new horse; Pizza Hut showed a rather crusty low blow and T Mobile with Kim Kardashian displayed what you might expect, curves.
If I didn’t mention your commercial, well it didn’t make the cut.
