The Superbowl is a championship game of American football. It is so widely watched that the day it airs on television is said to be a national holiday all over the USA. The advertisements that are featured during the game are some of the best. Here is a list of the top 10 Superbowl Advertisements.
This advertisement was featured during the 1993 Superbowl and showed Larry Bird and Michael Jordan competing during the HORSE championship for fries and Big Mac from McDonalds. There are a number of obstacles in their way which is what makes the commercial as interesting as it is.
2. Apple’s Macintosh-1984
The advertisement featured a woman running through a massive auditorium and breaking the screen with a hammer. A person similar to Big Brother was speaking on the screen before it exploded and “We shall prevail” were his last words. The main idea was to make the audience understand that Macintosh was on its way.
3. Master Lock- 1974
This company ran a series of advertisements through the year which showed sharpshooters targeting Master Locks and hitting them but leaving them unscathed and unopened. The message is simple- the strong lock will not open without its lock even if you burn it down.
This superbowl advertisement featured “Mean Joe” Greene. A young fan gives him a can of Coke and as repayment, he throws the kid away effortlessly. ESPN says that this popular advertisement was never featured during the superbowl, but fans argue that it was.
5. Coke- 2008
Coca-Cola created this advertisement during the 2008 superbowl. It showed two parade balloons, one was meant to be Underdog and the other was Stewie. The two then fight for another parade balloon in the form of a Coke bottle but are defeated when a fourth Charlie Brown parade balloon shows up and snatches the aerated drink from them. The popular cartoon characters are adored by Americans which is why Coke decided to use them.
This commercial showed a toy version of the car being controlled by G.I. Joe who then zooms over and picks up his Barbie-doll date. Even though the advertisement was very popular, Mattel sued the company and made them take it off air.
The Beer company aired this advertisement during the superbowl in 1995. It featured three frogs sitting in a line. The term “Budweiser” was broken up into three parts and each frog croaked it. The Americans went crazy for this ad and many other companies featured different versions over the years. People today can still be heard croaking the brand’s name through the streets.
This advertisement shows the famous “Terrible” Terry Tate who enters a made-up office and tackles them because they are not following the etiquette rules set by he office. He is wearing Reebok shoes and keeps barking at the nervous workers.
9. Snickers- 2010
This advertisement shows a timid and energy-less man who is playing the game as well as Betty White. The elderly actress is then shown to be the man among them. She is tackled and it’s supposed to be funny.
