Super Bowl Ads 2011

Well if you didn’t know already the Steelers lost in this year’s super bowl by a score of 31 to 25. It was a good game for sure and great to see Pittsburgh in it, but like most people I watch the Super Bowl for the commercials. With an average US audience of 111 million viewers, this was the most-watched Super Bowl as well as the most-watched progam of any kind in American television history, beating the previous record of 106.5 million viewers for Super Bowl XLIV. The game drew a national household Nielsen rating of 46.0 and a 69 share. That is sure a lot of eyes on the TV so having your brand in a commercial during the game can mean big things. Of course there is a price and this year the cost was said to be 3 million dollar for a commercial during the game.

Honestly I think some of the ads were great and some were just horrible. I would have really liked to see some more tech ads, but there were not that many. Anyways here are some of my favorite ads from this year.

NFL Best Fans Ever

This had to be my favorite commercial, it has some of the best TV shows of all time in it.

Budweiser ‘Wild West’

I love Peter Stormare and this commercial is just great!

Sealy After Glow

Interesting to see a mattress company advertise during the Super Bowl, but they did a great job on this commercial and it definitely caught people’s attention
