Who Cares About The Game; I Want To See The Ads
The Pittsburgh Steelers, Green Bay Packers and die-hard football fans are focused on one thing: The Super Bowl, minus the hype, half-time show, parties and glitz that go along with the most important game of the season. I happen to be a football fan, and I hope it’s going to be a good game. But even if you’re not a football fan, it’s worth watching the Super Bowl just to check out the commercials. Companies gladly drop millions of dollars for 60 seconds of air time to promote its products during the most watched sporting event of the year. However, I find it rather humorous that big name companies advertise during the big game. Do the ads result in a spike in sales? Maybe, maybe not. Chances are if I want a bag of Doritos or a pack of Pepsi, the clever, funny or memorable ad that ran during the Super Bowl isn’t what drove me to the store…it was my stomach.
So if you can’t wait until the Super Bowl to see this year’s commercials, Good Morning America gives a sneak peak at what to expect.
