2015 Super Bowl Commercials


[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text]Some people only watch the Super Bowl for the commercials. This year there was a variety of emotion-filled ads playing throughout a rather average football game. There were funny commercials, ones that tugged at your heart, and some that were just a terrible waste of time and money. Considering that it cost $4 million for just 30 seconds of air time, there are bound to be some effort put into the advertising.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_text_separator title=”The Emotional ” title_align=”separator_align_left”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_video link=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bd1qCi5nSKw”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text]Nissan put out an impactful commercial about a father and son, who don’t get to spend a lot of time together because the father who is a race car driver for Nissan, is always away. In the background, “Cats in the Cradle” is playing, and there couldn’t have been a better song to fit the ad.

It really hits you in the soft spot and you are left there in a state of shock.

It is a very heart tugging story, and it really makes you feel for the animals in the ad as they mourn for each other.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_text_separator title=”The Funny” title_align=”separator_align_left”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_video link=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2JqRXLQYF9o”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text]Doritos is one of the most prominent commercials that people look forward to when it comes to the big game. This year Doritos played two commercials, both of which were rather funny. The better one, involves a man who is trying to get an attractive girl to sit next to him on a plane. His tactics involve scaring anyone else away and then using a bag of Doritos to woo the girl.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_video link=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ha4k71AQqgA”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text]Loctite is a relatively new product, and the commercial they put out for the Super Bowl had me dying laughing. It was hilarious in so many aspects, and I had to watch it again. The video consist of a bunch of “nerds” singing and dancing over glue. I’m sure you will find it amusing.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_video link=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8XTwbgmWRrA”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text]TurboTax usually releases some rather funny commercials that have a modest sense of humor, but this commercial hit it out of the park. This commercial about the Boston Tea Party was a hilarious remix of what could have happened.

Most people are having parties when they are the Super Bowl, which includes massive amounts of delicious, yet unhealthy, piles of food. The last thing anyone wants to think about is fungus.

However, this is not an exciting commercial I would play during the Super Bowl considering the immensive cost it takes just to advertise on the big day.

It would be a better commercial for any regular day, but on the big night it just didn’t live up to expectations.
