Ah, Super Bowl Sunday! My favorite Sunday of the year! Not because I like football, but because I work in marketing and advertising and this is the one day when everyone is as excited about advertising as I am.
The Super Bowl is unique in that it has the power to convert advertising haters to advertising fans. Companies have taken note and consistently pay outrageous amounts to run their best commercial spots during the game. Well, their best attempts, at least. Super Bowl advertising is always hit and miss, generally with a lot more “meh” than “wow!” Super Bowl XLVIII was no different. In fact, if anything, there were a lot more forgettable spots than in years past.
If you’ve watched more than a couple Super Bowls, you know that most commercials fall into some very expected categories. Below, I present the six genres that I’ve seen again and again, and which spots stood out in each.
DISCLAIMER: I recognize—and I hope you do, too—that what makes a commercial good can be very subjective. I took into consideration practical elements (such as if the spot was true to the brand, if it expressed unique brand attributes or features, and if it would resonate with the target audience) but really, the spots I picked as the “best” were ones that spoke to me for some reason or another.

Perhaps it’s 15-second teasers. Maybe it’s posts on Facebook or photos on Instagram. It could even be the entire commercials themselves.
One way or another, chances are good that in the past few weeks, you’ve seen what some of the nation’s biggest brands are planning for Super Bowl Sunday. And with spots fetching an average of $4 million for 30 seconds this year, it’s no wonder advertisers want to extend the life of their big game day investment as much as possible.
So which brands have done the best job of getting users engaged ahead of the game? Who’s building the most buzz – for better or worse?
