Free Book Preview No BS Guide to Direct Response Social Media Marketing
While the Seahawks trounced the Broncos yesterday, they weren’t the only Super Bowl winners. With hundreds of thousands of eyes on the television, commercials competed to win over viewers.
With everything from interspecies friendship to sitcom reunions, ads this year gave fans plenty to talk about, even when the football game stopped being competitive. Millions of viewers visited Hulu AdZone to pick their favorite ads, ranking the best of the best in the commercial game.
This year, cute triumphed over all. Budweiser realized the only thing that could make their horses more loveable was by pairing them with an adorable puppy, putting ‘Puppy Love’ in the top spot of most liked ad.
Patriotism carried Coca-Cola and Budweiser to the second and third sports. Coke’s ad set to a multi-lingual “America the Beautiful” provided a heartwarming journey around America, with minimal appearances by the soft drink. Meanwhile, Budweiser prompted teary eyes across the country with a soldier’s return to his hometown in “A Hero’s Welcome.”
A less adorable puppy ranked number four in Audi’s “Doberhuana” ad, featuring the terrifying spawn of a Doberman and a Chihuahua. The ad also was voted the funniest of the year.
Other ads that made the top ten include Toyota’s Muppetfest, RadioShack’s back to the 80s redo and Dannon Okios’s Full House reunion.
