Since 1967 Americans look forward to one thing in the winter time, one of the biggest sporting events of the year The tackles, penalties, halftime show and of course the commercials. In the past few years we’ve seen GoDaddy heat up their advertisements, Budweiser pull at our heartstrings and many other brands try to capture our attention. Many of us watch the big game just for the commercials.
Fun fact: The cost for a 30 second commercial spot in 1967 was roughly around $40,000. That’s nothing compared to the 2014 price tag of roughly $4 million!
The hype of the ads gets bigger and bigger as the years go by and with the use of social media brands instantly know whether or not their $4 million investment was a win or a bust. Let’s take a trip together and relive some of the most iconic Super Bowl ads from past games and see how the commercials have changed throughout the years.
