A sneak peek of America’s favorite pastime: Super Bowl commercial watching

January 29th, 2014

 

Every year, two lucky cities get to watch their teams compete for the Lombardi Trophy in front of a worldwide audience. Yet, many people watching could care less about who wins. It’s true; they are there for the guacamole – and for the commercials. It’s tradition that commercials play a large role in the Super Bowl. Whether is a talking baby or celebrities dancing around in their underwear, we’re more often entertained by the advertising than the game itself. Here are some commercials predicted to score big on Super Bowl Sunday.

Oikos

Uncle Jesse, Uncle Joey, and Danny Tanner will all be reunited in this year’s Oikos greek yogurt commercial. All of the male adults in the popular sitcom “Full House” will be back together again. A teaser has been released featuring John Stamos, aka Uncle Jesse, watching the game while eating yogurt. When he suggests it’s time for bed, Joey, played by Dave Coulier, sporting his red footsie pajamas, and Danny, played by Bob Saget, declare that it may be time they all get their own place. Thankfully, they all unanimously agree not to. Perhaps other characters may not be far behind, including the lovable Olsen twins who play Michelle Tanner. Regardless we can’t wait until we find out more.

Doritos

Doritos is holding a contest this year called “Crash the Super Bowl.” There are five ads in the running for the Super Bowl XLVIII, and voters had the chance to vote for their favorite commercial. The filmmaker team that wins the contest will not only have their commercial air during the game, but they will also receive a prize of one million dollars as well as the opportunity to work on the set of a movie. The five different ads are titled, “Breakroom Ostrich,” “Finger Cleaner,” “Cowboy Kid,” “Office Thief” and “Time Machine.”

M&M’s

Every year the M&M’s Super Bowl commercial is a reliable favorite, and this year won’t be any different. M&M’s will be giving Miley Cyrus a run for her money, as the yellow peanut M&M was featured in a preview twerking for the camera; until he was shot with a tranquilizer dart and dragged off camera – followed by a card saying “Find out what happens to yellow.” This commercial will be the launch of a yearlong campaign about the company’s peanut candies according to Seth Klugherz, senior director of M&M’s candies.

Bud Light

Although everyone is excited to see the return of the Clydesdale horses, Bud Light has a new surprise for its fans in 2014 as Arnold Schwarzenegger will be starring in Bud Light’s 2014 Super Bowl campaign. Schwarzenegger will be channeling his epic hairstyle, outfit and ping-pong paddle from the “Conan the Barbarian” films.
