Super Bowl 50 Commercials: Morning After Edition

super bowl 50 commercials morning after edition

Some automakers decided that they would surprise viewers with their Super Bowl advertisements, rather than release them early and make my job easier.

Some other advertisers decreed that would be the night of bowel issues, or of projectile obstetrics.

Let’s discuss the car ads I didn’t cover on Saturday … I’m sure there are other blogs for that other stuff. Eww.


We knew that Buick would show the new Cascada along with footballer Odell Beckham Jr. and model Emily Ratajkowski in supporting roles. Now we can see the entire ad:

    Said it before, I'll say it again: Black Pistol Fire absolutely crushed it on that Prius commercial. Those driving beats nearly make that crap-box desirable. Glad to see rock and roll still lives, particularly in power-duo form.

    Didn't see Prius ad till this article. Bank robbers are such lovable scamps. Want to learn Japanese? Here's your first lesson: clueless = akio. Ex.: "Ain't that kinda dumb?" = "Saa, chotto akio desu ne."

    OK all you advertising/marketing folks, the "I can't believe it's a Buick" ads, is that suppose to work? Kind of rehash of the "Not your father's Oldsmobile" ads, and well we see how that worked out. To me it says, we made a lousy car, but now it's better. Just seems desperate.

      Exactly. "That's a Buick?" just reinforces the notion that Buick's image is a dowdy car for old people. I have a tweenage niece whose first exposure of Buicks are commercials where everyone is surprised the decent cars shown in their ads are Buicks, so she assumed they must have a really bad reputation or something. The first Jeep advert was excellent though. Really set Jeep apart from every other SUV.

    When I look at how many mfrs DON'T advertise during the Super Bowl, it makes me wonder about the effectiveness of such ads, or any TV ads for cars. Kia, for one, could have done much, much better - ugh. And I'm a Kia partisan.
