Super Bowl Ads will be the best part of the game this year for sure

My husband has to work during the Super Bowl and neither of the teams we like are in the big game so really all it has going for it are the commercials and of course whatever snacks I decide to make for me and the kids.

One of the talked about ads this year will not be airing and it is for SodaStream. Sadly, Pepsi said they simply won’t allow the competition. Coke on the other hand didn’t really care one way or the other, probably because their commercials are usually awesome anyway.

A commercial which will be airing is one by the America’s Wetland Foundation and it has a super cool story.

The America’s WETLAND Foundation (AWF) will launch its new ‘GAME ON!’ campaign to save coastal Louisiana with an advertisement titled ‘Eagle,’ during Super Bowl XLVIII, expected to be one of the most-watched television events of the year.

game-on-ad“Seventy-four percent of people in this state consider saving the coast to be the most important issue of our lifetime,” said AWF Chair R. King Milling, referencing a statewide poll released last week by the Foundation “The public knows we’re out of time. But we have a plan in place, and if we come together now, we have a chance to accomplish something truly extraordinary.”

AWF’s ad will feature young Louisiana football players as part of a call for teamwork to save the coast for future generations. Louisiana loses the equivalent of a football field of land every 50 minutes, a fact first popularized by AWF when it created a virtual ‘flooding’ of LSU’s Tiger Stadium ten years ago to raise awareness of coastal land loss. Since then, the football field metaphor has helped to generate billions of media impressions throughout the country and around the world.

AWF’s poll found that 97 percent of voters believe it will take a team effort of government, industry, education and non-profit organizations to the restore the coast, agreeing that a unified effort is the best hope for coastal restoration and protection, not assigning blame for what has been lost.

“It’s time for us all to get our game on and that’s the message we’re taking to the public on Super Bowl Sunday,” said AWF Senior Advisor Sidney Coffee. “Think of everything that is rooted in the coastal landscape that is disappearing so rapidly – the unique cultures and communities, vital national economic assets, and a truly critical ecosystem of global significance. With so much at stake, we hope this is one of those Super Bowl ads people remember.”

AWF’s new GAME ON! ‘Eagle’ ad will run both before and during Super Bowl coverage on Fox affiliates and Cox Media throughout southern Louisiana. The ad was produced by Compose Digital Design and Marmillion / Gray Media, both based in Baton Rouge.

Who is your pick for the big game tonight?

49ersfaithfulMy husband and my younger brother are faithful, diehard 49ers fans. So we’re going to be cheering for the San Francisco 49ers to win the Superbowl tonight.

But my post is for the kiddos. We have three kids, two of which might have more fun with some activity type games during the big game. Right?

Disclaimer that will not be needed, but I am going to say it just for preservation. I work for the University of Delaware and so there for I am a Flacco fan PLUS my Mom is Ravens fan, which means I will not cry if the 49ers should not win the game.

Hmm, Beyonce is Pepsi’s new brand ambassador…$50 million deal

So, Rihanna promotes Vita Coco Coconut Water and Beyonce opts for something a little less vita and a whole lot more sugar. Going back to her Pepsi roots circa 2003 I suppose.

Pepsi and Beyonce are inviting fans to help make this year’s Pepsi Super Bowl Halftime Show one of the most memorable and compelling shows ever. Beginning on Saturday, December 29th, fans are encouraged to submit photos of specific “poses” in hopes of being selected for a chance of a lifetime – to appear in an on-air introduction welcoming Beyonce to the stage for the Pepsi Super Bowl XLVII Halftime Show.

Beginning Saturday, December 29, Pepsi will take over Times Square with digital billboards calling fans to submit their photos. Fans who visit www.pepsi.com/halftime will be given a series of poses to photograph, including head bopping, feet tapping, and yes, even hips shaking. Hundreds of photos uploaded at www.Pepsi.com/halftime with the hashtag #PepsiHalftime will be used to introduce the Pepsi Super Bowl XLVII Halftime Show and to welcome Beyonce to the world’s biggest stage. The show will air on CBS on February 3, 2013.

In addition, people who submit their photos by January 11 th will be entered into a drawing for a chance to be one of 50 lucky fans selected for an unforgettable on-field experience during Beyonce’s Pepsi Super Bowl XLVII Halftime Show performance seen by millions of viewers at home. These fans will be able to bring a friend to New Orleans, participate in dress rehearsals during the week leading up to the show, and be a part of the Halftime Show’s on-field dance team on Super Bowl Sunday.

“Pepsi is bringing to life its ‘Live for Now’ mindset which places fans at the center of this experience,” said Angelique Krembs, vice president of marketing, Pepsi. “Pepsi is looking for new ways to involve fans in the Halftime Show experience, and ‘live’ it like never before. And this is just the beginning. Only Pepsi could offer these amazing experiences, and we are proud to be able to work with our partners at the NFL, CBS and with Beyonce in this unique and creative manner.”
