This ad, for the Chevy Camaro, was the most-watched spot during the Super Bowl, pulling in 119,628,000 sets of eyeballs according to the ratings agency Nielsen. A Chevy Cruze ad took second place in the “most-watched” category, and Chrysler’s much-chattered-about 200 spot tied for fourth (with 5 other spots, including one for Bridgestone Tires), with 17.565m viewers. In short, cars and car-related products not only accounted for many of the ads, they managed to snag the time slots where the fewest people were taking bathroom breaks or grabbing more bacon-wrapped buffalo wings. But remember, there’s more to effective advertising than merely drawing eyeballs…

For one thing, an ad has to reach its viewers on an emotional level. It needs to elicit sympathy… and for the amount of money needed to run a Super Bowl spot, it needs to elicit with gusto. VW’s “Darth Vader” Passat ad did just that, although it did so to millions fewer people than Chevy’s spots. Meanwhile, Chevy’s “most-watched” ads didn’t rate on Nielsen’s top ten “most liked,” a quality the ratings agency defines thusly:

The Likeability score is the percentage of viewers who report to like “a lot” an ad they were exposed to during the normal course of viewing the Super Bowl, among those recalling the brand of the ad. These scores are then indexed against the average score for all Super Bowl ads (Likeability Index). 100 equals average. For example, with a Likeability Index of 186, the Volkswagen “Darth Vader” ad was almost twice as liked compared to the average Super Bowl spot.

And in a world that’s oversaturated with advertising, would you prefer a “quantity” impact or a “quality impact”? But then, “likeability” isn’t everything in advertising either. After all, who cares how good an ad makes the viewer feel about a product or brand if said viewer is unable to remember the product or brand being promoted? That’s where Nielsen’s “most recalled” index comes in, a metric described as

the percentage of viewers who can Recall the brand of an ad they were exposed to during the normal course of viewing the Super Bowl. These scores are then indexed against the average score for all Super Bowl ads (Recall Index). 100 equals average. For example, with a Recall Index of 179, the Doritos “Pug” ad was 79% better-recalled than the average Super Bowl spot.

Surprise! Not a single automaker or automotive product made Nielsen’s top ten most-recalled ads. And why, pray tell, was that? My theory is that the number of automotive brands on the market far exceeds the average American’s ability to keep them all straight. Another possible reason is that car advertisers have lost touch with what it means to connect Americans emotionally to specific automobiles… and given the homogenization of modern mass-market cars, can you blame them? Or, if you’re not into the whole “big picture” thing, maybe these were just poorly-made ads (certainly the Camaro ad would have been improved if the Mad Men dialogue were punctuated with snorting sounds and shouts of “my God, this is good coke!” to complete the ad-brainstorming ambiance).

What say you? Why didn’t the Super Bowl’s car ads resonate with viewers? Is this indicative of a wider problem with car advertising, or just the ads themselves?

    I’ve always wondered why car advertising is generally so bad.  If you consider that it’s a product that interests people and moves under it’s own power yet the average soap powder commercial (and who really cares about soap powder) seems to elicit much more creativity in the average ad agency.
     
    Down here in Texas we are swamped with endless truck commercials from the big-3 & Toyota and frankly you could take the product from one manufacturer & insert it into another’s ad and no one could tell. All of them are bigger, stronger, meaner & built Texas proud.  Conversely who over the age of 30 doesn’t remember that “dogs love trucks” and Nissan trucks in particular?

      I may not be the kind of viewer the TV spots are trying to reach, but the thing about the car ads was that none of them actually told me why the car itself is better than the others and worthy of my car-buying budget.
       
      Even the VW ad, for all that its “most remembered” trophy is worth – you could recreate that scene with ANY damn car with a remote start feature and a dorky kid in a Vader suit.  So what’s the reason to buy that particular car?
       
      The whole “Audi is for douchebags careening towards a midlife crisis, the Mercedes is for his dad” crap was another tiresome theme.  Maybe it attracts the douchebag demographic, so good luck to them – but what about the car, axe-holes?  They barely showed about 3 seconds of the actual A8 in the end — surely that car deserves more airtime than the third-rate actors running through the asylum or whatever it was they were breaking out of?

      If you see advertising as either designed to give you hard information or entertain, you need to revisit that perception. Advertising can be as simple as making you aware of the brand (you know all about HeadOn) or at its more sophisticated, it is about an emotional connection to the target demographic. Fact based ads tend not to do well and those who go for maximum entertainment value do not advance the brand or even make a strong brand association. To me the two car ads that accomplished the best connection to their target audience and advanced brand values were the Chrysler 200 and the mini-Vader VW.

      There, I fixed the missing word.   :-)
       
      That is why I love AdBlock on my browsers and the Mute button on my remote – I would rather choose for myself which ’emotional connections’ I want to have.
       
      And to keep this on topic, there’s the answer to what’s wrong with the superbowl car ads.  All of them are trying to cop an emotional feel on me while my guard is down, and none of them bother to even remotely convey anything of actual use to me.

      I’m nowhere near 30 and even I remember the “Dogs Love Trucks” ads vividly. The ads that rolled out when the Titan was introduced? Notsomuch.

      Then again I can keep all the brands straight, and I know all about pretty much every new model available for sale out there, so I was simply not the audience for these ads.

      I decide what vehicle I want not based on any advertising, but on the stats, merits, and uncompensated reviews of the products themselves.

    Viewers understand the hype associated with Super Bowl ads, and so such ads have little staying power.
     
    Car ads typically tell you nothing of real value about the car.  I’m not impressed that it can go 40 mph through wind-blown leaves.
     

    The Passat has remote start (likely optional) – so what.
    The Camaro is in its N-th year of production as a ‘toy’ car – Transformers, flying off buildings, yawn.
    The Audi A8 is unaffordable to most of the population.
    The Chrysler 200 still looks like a Sebring from the 90s.
    People don’t buy tires based upon TV ads – they either research online or go to their local tire store and get whatever ‘good’ tire is on sale.
    And, as philipbarrett said, truck ads are all alike.

      The best part of the VW add was the fine print.  Right under the “starts near $20k” it said the V-6 model shown is $32kish.  I was wondering where that $20k car was going to top-out.

    The Mad men Camaro ad didn’t work because it was a dumb premise.  So was the Bumble-bee Camaro ad.  I know there were other GM ads but they were unmemorable.  The Eminem 200 ads were painful to watch, and evoked a ‘I don’t how much attitude you have kid, Detroit is still a dump” response because they were so in your face. The A8 ad was surreal.  By the way didn’t KIA have some ads?

      It had all the required elements: fun times, hot girls, family values, car tricks, mpg, price, and a great sound track.

      The Enimem ad was ridiculous on many levels, not the least being that Chrysler spent 9 million dollars on an ad for Detroit. It didn’t have anything to say about their product, not that there is anything worth saying about the 200. Why are they promoting Detroit? I don’t think it is awareness of Detroit’s problems that is influencing people’s purchasing decisions. What percentage of Chryslers are even made there?

    No offense to the Niedermeyer family, but a buddy of mine was recently selected by MB to join the adviser program.  His first assignment was to evaluate a different Audi ad that we both agreed was terrible.  His take on the Super Bowl ad was this:

    “Our competitors are so luxurious that you’ll feel like you’re in Auschwitz, but at Audi we have ways of making you talk.”

      “Why does every German car ad invoke a prison camp” Probably because the Germans were good at it, not that the Russians, U.S., Japan, China and (name favorite country here) are slouches at that sort of thing, but the Germans still build the finest machine guns money can buy.

    Believe it or not I didn’t watch ANY Super Bowl commercials. It’s amazing how marketing and advertising changed the event into a national sport of watching and commenting their commercials.
    I still believe that the product is the king. When I buy something, brand name, quality and price are the most important. I google the products and read the forums where customers talk about their experience. Commercials have a vary pale influence on my decisions.
    Taking some money from advertising and spending it on the product would do a better service to any company. Toyota has some mediocre commercials, especially the dealer ones, but that didn’t stop us to get a Toyota. But I would prefer that Toyota spent less on commercials and use that money updating their automatic gearboxes from 4-speed to 5 or 6-speed.
    There are some companies which really need to review their budget allocation.

      One of my guests that day was an actual schoolteacher and a certifiable car nut herself (and I have no idea how the boys in her class are able to focus on the lesson, but that is a different story).  Her response to the Camaro ad, reproduced verbatim here:  “Why the f**k does a school-teacher need 440 hp to commute to school?”
       
      She drives an MR2, so make what you will of that.

      Now that made me laugh harder than the ad.  I’ve considered a Mustang GT or an old previous generation Camaro Z28, but that’s talking about a $15,000 or less purchase, not a brand spanking new Camaro.

    The basic issue is that a Volkswagen Passat costs 20,000 times more than a 20 oz bottle of Pepsi or a bag of Doritos. I bet that number is the inverse of the number of cars bought by the average American compared to the number of 20 oz Pepsis. The more often you consume a product, the more familiar you are with that product. The car ads just aren’t going to move the needle that much.

      One might also ask how effective it is to spend $$$ on Doritos or Pepsi ads, when most people already have their minds made up about those products.  Granted, when introducing new products it may be helpful.

      It is all about risk. Maintenance ads for a mature core product will eventually pay for themselves. The big risk is in launching a new product to such a large audience. Remember Crystal Pepsi?

    I know teaching wages vary significantly by location, but as the product of a rural public school I had a very hard time believing a single teacher could afford a Camaro SS on her base salary.
     
    Yes, I’m probably overthinking the ad.

    • 0 avatar
      Educator(of teachers)Dan

      Yeah, you are.  Let’s see, cheapest SS is $30,000 (it could have been a pimped LT2 model but that’s still $27,000.)  Base teacher salary in U.S. approximately $30,000 to $40,000 depending on the part of the U.S. you’re talking about, although usually where teachers are paid more, cost of living is significantly higher.  Perhaps she has a school administrator as a “sugar daddy?”  (Wait now I’m getting my sick mind into it.)

      Living in California, I know public school teachers who can decide to go to Hawaii the week after Christmas on a whim because one of them had a falling out with her boyfriend and needed to be cheered up. There is something to public employees making 75% more on average than the people who pay their salaries.

      Every state is different, Amigo.  There might be a reason that the American Federation of Teachers (my union) offers free debt counseling. 

      In New Mexico, the max you could make in a classroom is a little over $50,000 but that would be after at least 7 years in the classroom and a master’s degree (which costs thousands of dollars and 36 credit hours of aditional schooling) plus twice proving your competence by submitting a huge amount of documentation (twice, once to go from Level I to Level II, then to go from Level II to Level III) EACH dossier (the documentation) would be the equivilent of 100 pages front and back.  Oh and the money demanded for each licence has risen to approximately $400. 

      Bachelors degree: thousands in debt
      Masters degree: thousands in debt
      licences throughout the years: more thousands of dollars

      Affecting the lives of students and trying to foster life long learners and productive members of society?: priceless.  No matter the flack I might take for my chosen profession, I wouldn’t change it for the world.  A friend of my father’s once said; “Don’t worry about how much money you’ll make, Dan.  Find a profession you love.”  My parents just said, “Go to college, we never went and want you to do better.” 

      I’m not gonna argue any part of it is perfect or defend every teacher to the death, any more than Mikey would do the same if we were speaking of the UAW.

      I guess that I’m living in the wrong place (IL) then. My wife, with Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Spec Ed and 20 years of experience, has never made more than $60K/year (including the often mandatory summer school). She buys a lot of classroom supplies out of her own pocket (since the school never provides everything that she needs), works harder than I ever have as a computer professional with nothing more than a Bachelors degree, yet I’ve always earned more than her.

      BTW we have former governor and former presidential canidate Bill Richardson to thank for our salary increases but I don’t see any more raises coming for many, many years.  It was a good decade but you won’t hear me griping about stagant salary, I know I’m lucky.  New Mexico went from being in the bottom 10 in teacher salaries a decade ago to being in the top 10 to 15 in the U.S.  They also made it harder to keep a licence, my ex-wife lost her’s due to incompetence.

      In Texas, first year teachers are po’ folk with a university degree.  Even past the five year mark, teachers in public schools here make less than 40K.
       
      15 years plus, with being in the same district and having received a few merit raises, 50K.
       
      Administrators, especially Superintendents receive much better pay and perks.
       
      If you like your subject matter and working surrounded by young people, it’s a great profession.  There are long hours, you are on your feet a lot and one must have the ability to be positive in challenging situations.

      Teachers, so undervalued.
      My wife, up until 2 years ago, was a teacher in the DCPS, which, thanks to Michelle Rhee, was in the news quite a bit over the last few years. Yes, she ended up getting a good raise due to all of that hoopla, but, then again, she was perhaps one of the best teachers in the system. She was the first teacher ever in the District to receive Nat. Board certification in ESL, was head of the ESL dept in her school, and was/is a tireless advocate for immigrant students. She has 2 Masters degrees, and was in the top tier of pay for her # of years teaching. How much we talkin’ ’bout? ~72K after 7 yrs of teaching. Yes, that sounds like a lot, but, damn, DC is expensive. The DC metro area will find ways to suck that money out of your wallet real quick.
       
      She took a slight pay cut to go to Alexandria, VA system for the sake of observing/mentoring/curriculum-planning for ESL teachers there. The fact that we have a 1-yr old means a much-needed break from grading papers, creating lessons, etc in the evenings. And, yes, I’ve put in MANY hours as go-to editor, graphic designer and teacher’s assistant to help her get to where she is. Me? Web developer/designer w/ a BA. I make a few thou less than she does, but her zealous dedication to her craft says she deserves every penny of what she makes.
       
      Yes, I brag because I’m proud of her. Forgive me.

      Off topic from SB car ads but if you’re a teacher –  move to NJ.  That’s why we have the highest property taxes per capita in the country.  The number of six-figure asst. superintendents and asst. principals in addition to teachers is ridiculous.  And every township, village and hamlet has their own infrastructure.  Gov. Chris Cristy may be able to address this issue but I’m not holding my breath.  On top of all the time off/vacation days – aaahhh!  MA. and CT. are the runner’s up.  No offense Dan but the teacher’s union is out of control in the Northeast.  It can’t be sustainable going forward…the money has to run out…

    The recall issue is a function of how much contact viewers have with the product being advertised. Virtually all of the top recalled ads were for products that we see almost constantly in daily life, with the brand displayed prominently on the package. Not so with most cars, especially newer models that are being promoted. This makes it much easier for the viewer to identify and retain the product name.

    As to the quality of car ads, I think that cars are so much more complicated than soda or snacks that it’s difficult to craft quick and compelling messages about them. The effort to get someone to buy a cheap product that one consumes every day is a lot less than the effort to attract buyers to a product purchased just a handful of times in one’s lifetime, has to meet a variety of functional and emotional needs for both genders, and is the first or second largest purchase that one ever makes. It’s tough to do that with talking babies or cute animals.

    The Superbowl ad i connected the most with was the vw beetle spot. I remember watching the bug race through the jungle wondering this was going and then thinking “whoa” when the beetle turned into the silhouette of the car. I didn’t even know there was a new beetle coming out and the commercial stayed with me long enough to remember to look the car up.

    My two favorite car ads weren’t even on the list. The first was the Silverado ad “What’s that Silverado? Tommy fell down the well”? Clever, and, while ultra-hyperbolic, spoke of the vehicle’s capability. The second was the Charger ad that spoke of future of cars driven by “search engines” and said “we’ve seen that movie and it ends with us being turned into batteries”. That one really works for me because the Charger is one of the few traditional American RWD V8 cars. They both worked as ads for the vehicles, not as feel-good fluff such as the Passat ad.

      I’m traditionally against most anything that could be interpreted as praise for GM… but I admit, I really enjoyed the Silverado ad.

    I’ve only seen the VW ads, the Passat one didn’t even feel like an ad as much as a joke for a sitcom.
    The ad for the new beetle used some rubbish CGI animation to, in a symbolic way, tell me that the new new beetle will turns heads, powerslide, and will be sporty. I can’t see that since the new beetle looks like it’ll just be the same but bigger.

    Part of it was the fact that I couldn’t get an accurate view of the whole car in anything but the Camaro. While it may give your design team to give quick cuts of their shitty chrome jobs and passe stylings, for all I know the car is a big pile of crap, and I’m not going to some stupid flash-riddled website to find out.

    Loved the Darth Vader ad.  Most car ads are designed to make you feel positively toward the manufacturer, not the car itself.  That one did the job.  They are trying to drive positive associations with the brand…and in this case, specifically to the demographic of parents.  It was a winner on that note.  If people think “VW understands people who have kids” they mentally add “and are more likely to build family friendly cars”.  Simple as that.
    The Eminem ad by contrast said this.  “Chrysler is angry and pissed off at me because I don’t think highly of their crappy cars that are built in what is obviously a miserable failing city full of criminals and punks like Eminem.”  They couldn’t have botched that more if they tried.  Maybe a few inner-city urban drug dealers will now consider a Chrysler.   In contrast, BMW did a nice ad about building the X3 in South Carolina.  The place and people were appealing and if you had misgivings about an X3 vs. a domestic (say Ford Edge) this eliminated them.

    What’s the problem with the automobile advertising during the Superbowl?  Obviously the
    advertising agencies went into overdrive seeing who could come up with the wildest ideas and
    while they are fun to watch,  absolutely none of them made me want to go out and look at any of them, much less buy one.  I think prospective buyers do much of their research on the internet,
    where they can compare vehicles efficiently and not on the basis of an over the top commercial.  These are for entertainment only.

    These are “top funnel” ads trying to move awareness, consideration and opinion.  Recall and likeability are important but as important are the free mentions their brand, and ideally their new models, got in the press and blogs.

    I think there are a few issues, and the article hit on most of them: over-amalgamation in the industry, the combination of ad agencies, car companies and massive budgets trying to come up with something epic to justify it all, while the most liked car ad was probably the simplest concept–although licensing Star Wars music and a character probably took some doing.  All in all, it wasn’t really anything all that new and nothing seemed to get people to want to drive.  The Chrysler bravado seems to have hit the mark for those that don’t see irony in it, however.
     
    My personal favorite car ad of the day was actually on during the Puppy Bowl, and it it is far simpler than the game ads.  Two dogs hooning a Subaru around a snowy parking lot is pretty much perfect.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hWxP0TiqsQw

    A day late and a dollar short as usual, but after reading and evaluating how I would contribute to this topic, all I can come up with is this: The ad agencies are simply trying too hard and have gone over the top in trying to get our attention and, all too often, losing their point in the process. For example, I see nothing positive about glorifying “thuggery” and “hopelessness” as I did in the Chrysler ad for the 200. A (c)rap “star” and a dead city are nothing to be proud of, and somehow showing this as a positive does nothing for me. You don’t glorify “darkness”. I am a firm believer in looking at the better side of things, as Johnny Mercer sang: “Accentuate the positive, eliminate the negative, don’t mess with Mr. In-Between”. Case in point: 40 years ago, all the car dealers in Roseville, Ca. got together and pooled their money to make one good series of commercials that were absolutely corny, but absolutely hilarious that I remember to this day. Simple. Also during that time, Jay Brown of Spartan Dodge in San Jose sponsored all-night movies on channel 44 in the Bay area, even had full-size posters made extolling his “virtues” of “price-chopping”, offering the “best deals in town”. Again, simply, but funny and effective. Things now are so amped-up, they don’t work all too often and leaves me scratching my head, asking myself: “what, exactly, are they trying to sell me?” This latest crop of Super Bowl ads leave me cold, along with the non-car ones. The VW was the best, because it was simple and humorous and innocent. maybe the ad agencies need to re-address their standards. I know full well that it’s not a “Leave it to Beaver” world, it never was, but your message should at least make your prospective customers feeling good and not paranoid.

    At NYTimes.com, I just experienced the next step in the 200’s marketing.  To “Imported from Detroit,” they have added the tagline, “A car you don’t have to own to be proud of.”

    The ad also contains a bald eagle.  No, really.
