So my son simply asked why are all the companies previewing their commercials before Superbowl? Not really getting the point of his question, I answered with an article I just recently read talking about ‘generating buzz’ for the commercials.

After last night, I get what my son was saying. All the anticipation was now gone. I had seen most of them, so there was no surprise, but only a big Meh.
I think half of the viewers watch Superbowl for the ads (and halftime show) alone… like me. I was completely underwhelmed since I’ve seen the commercials before, sometimes several times. Also, they were either not good or just bizarre. So I’m thinking the idea of trying to make a commercial go viral has backfired at least for those folks who are anticipating ‘new’ commercials.
I do remember some, but not in a good way. The bud light having a 30 second commercial on their “New” twist cap. WTF, it was just images of watch splashing against the bottle… seriously WTF. There were others that were bizarre and just quickly forgotten already. This will definitely be a year of not remember much.

I think my son’s right. Go back to secrecy of the commercial until game day.

I like you (and the rest of the planet) saw the bulk of the ads prior to the game. The last couple of Superbowls have been meh when it comes to watching new commercials. Unfortunately this is how it's going to be from here on out. No company will go back to the way it was before because none of them will allow themselves to have another company "get a head start" when it comes to "leaking" their ads. They will always want to be the FIRST in that regard.

Ha, just saw this in the news...

Super Bore: Haven't we watched these ads before?

Quote
or more than three grueling hours Sunday, a global audience squirmed through a tedious spree of early fumbles and muffed pitches -- although many teared up during one thrilling return.

Then there was the football game.

The advertising world's annual big night was, largely, a big yawn, according to several leading marketing experts.

More...

The "game" was a joke, which of course made the commercials even more of a joke because the attention span was elsewhere. The game was essentially "over" on the first play of scrimmage with the safety. Ack!

I noticed no one is speaking of the half time entertainment.

Well, maybe because it was just OK. Like a million other concert shows.

I was hearing from Bruno Mars, statements like this was going to be memorable. So I was expecting great things.
It wasn't bad. Mars is a fabulous entertainer. But I didn't see anything special.

I thought bringing on Red Hot Chili Peppers was odd. Oh well. :-[

I thought Bruno was good, but I wouldn't put it in the same level of memorable on par with the likes of U2 or Prince or Michael Jackson. The Chili Peppers did get "busted" for not really "playing" their instruments when Flea was caught playing his Bass which wasn't even plugged in. That's really the only thing that got any kind of Post Superbowl activity on the NEWS. None of the members were playing live. Just Anthony was Mic'd to sing.

More about FleaGate can be found here.

Your just now getting on fleagate?

I thought it was a whole lotta nuttin.

I can't stand the lip-synching and the band playing to recorded music blows, but this particular event I give a pass. They have only minutes to set up a stage and entertain us for a few more. No big deal about what they did.

No. I knew about it within hours of the "performance". I just didn't think it was anything to even comment on as this happens more than you think with big productions like the Superbowl.
