Well its that time of the year again. Superbowl Sunday and all its glory! ehemm ..
Personally I couldn’t give a flying saucer who plays and who wins. I imagine most creatives feel the same as I do. The suites in the office (david) seem to love their games but me? I love the commercials.
Most of us have come to see the Superbowl Halftime as the ultimate gala of the best of the best forking out millions of dollars to wow you with their heavy productions and elaborate creative flow.
So with out further adieu, here are my personal favorite of the 2013 Superbowl commercials and teasers;
Volkswagen | Get In. Get Happy.
This years Volkswagon Superbowl spot seems to be is the spotlight. It appears as “The Critics” (who ever they may be) find the ad racist. Ya mon! Yuh heard mi right! Meanwhile back in the Islands, Jamaicans are loving the ad. My personal take on the ad. Not a bad ad. well executed. The German automobile manufacturer appears to be feeling quite irie this year and I say there nothing wrong with that.
Note to critics; “No Jamaicans were hurt in the production of this blog post. Every’ting be irie mon.”
Volkswagen | Sunny Side: Featuring Jimmy Cliff
Following up with their irieism, Volkswagen rolls a bit further with this spot featuring the original reggae gangster Jimmy Cliff. The ad which doesn’t seem to be getting as much attention or raising controversy is to me a much better spot. It might have something to do with my love for bredda Jimmy Cliff but I have to go with this as my favorite Superbowl ad of 2013.
Doritos | Road Chip
Coke Chase (Coca Cola)
Beverage giant Coca-Cola is promoting their ad this year as an online campaign featuring three rivals vying for a drink in the desert – The just over a minute spot is using fan votes through the end of the game to determine the winner.
The initial ad wll air in the first half of Sunday’s game, throwing 3 of the rivals, band of Cowboys, a gang right out of Mad Max and a pack of Vegas-style Showgirls (metaphorical Priscella and her gang of drag queens in the desert) at each other in the quest for coke. (Who hasn’t been there?)
I wont soil the surprise but I’m sure we all know where this ends up.
Motorola Featuring Megan Fox
Absolute mayhem! This is what happens when you give a Motorola to a hot babe? No work would get done. Great ad. Megan Fox you are a super-babe. Oh my! My keyboard just exploded.
