Super Sunday ads were a bit of a let down. In fact, if you weren’t into the game, this year’s event didn’t require that you wait through the action to get to the ads. You can simply log on and watch them all at Hulu.com (the commercials even come with their own commercials online). Hulu, owned in part by NBC, also weighed in with their own Super Bowl spot, above.
Today on “Morning Joe,” Donny Deutsch said, “Madison Avenue blew it” with this years crop of Super Bowl ads. I don’t know about all that, I mean do we really expect that much from our 30-second spots when nowadays we can easily avoid long form ads altogether? Will the online pre-roll and the 15-second pre-roll become the ad art form of the future?
