This was my favorite commercial during the most recent Super Bowl.
The non-cut-up version of the 84 Lumber Super Bowl commercial that got everybody all worked up because of the pro-immigration stance it took (I don't understand why people are so afraid to begin with). It's a nice commercial with an actual story to tell. And it's shot beautifully. If I didn't know this ran during the Super Bowl I would have just thought this was a short film rather than an ad.
Like every year, YouTube puts all of the Super Bowl commercials into one convenient dedicated page for those of us (like me) who missed the big game. It's the one time advertisers can get people genuinely excited about watching an ad.
I watched almost every ad -- and these are the only 3 I liked:
Great timing on Vox's part in explaining this magical yellow virtual first-down line in the NFL. Today is the Super Bowl game between the Carolina Panthers and the Denver Broncos and if you've always wondered how that wonderful yellow line crosses the field without going over players' uniforms -- making it seem like the yellow line is actually on the field itself no matter what camera angle -- then this video is for you. Lots of tech, engineering, and mathematical calculations involved as you can imagine.
The company behind it is Sportvision and they do a ton of other on-screen graphics during live broadcasts of sports games.
This Sunday, February 7th, Key and Peele are busting out their best sports commentator outfits and doing a full-game commentary for The Super Bowl. They've set up a site called Real Talk with tons of photos and quotes all to get you hyped for their upcoming show. If you've seen their football names skits previously, you will no doubt enjoy this game day commentary. I'd be surprised if they didn't incorporate some of that into the day's events too.
Tune in! It should be lots of laughs!
