CREATIVE CAMPAIGNS #35 – Super Bowl LIII adverts

CREATIVE CAMPAIGNS #35 – Super Bowl LIII adverts

Super Bowl Sunday heralds the biggest, most creative adverts from brands looking to stand out in that all important commercial break.

The ads have got such a reputation now that people deliberately watch them and some brands now release the adverts days early to capitalise on the buzz of America’s biggest sporting event.

Even us Brits are staying up late (thanks to the BBC) to get our American football, cough TOM BRADY cough, fix. Let’s not even talk about how cool coach McVay is either – 33 years old and the youngest head coach ever.

Here’s my favourite 10, er 11 sorry, creative adverts from 2019’s Super Bowl LIII that I reckon are worth your eyeball time…

CREATIVE CAMPAIGNS #34 – ‘Fight for Territory’ Steinlager and Guinness’ Lions Tour stunt

February marks the start of the Six Nations Rugby tournament and sport is never short of wonderfully creative campaigns to draw inspiration from.

Recently I was shown a video of a brilliant PR stunt which combined advertising, marketing and PR in a beautifully clever package. It’s so good and really stuck with me, I literally can’t stop thinking about it, so much so that I just had to share it with you.

It is a stunt that was done for the last British & Irish Lions Rugby Tour by Steinlager, New Zealand’s leading beer and sponsor of the All Blacks, and Guinness, sponsor of the British & Irish Lions. YOU NEED TO SEE THIS VIDEO!

CREATIVE CAMPAIGNS #32 – Provoke Piers

CREATIVE CAMPAIGNS #32 – Provoke Piers

“Do you want your next marketing campaign to trend globally? Do you want guaranteed media coverage? If the answer is yes, then it seems all you really have to do is annoy Piers Morgan.”

This is the opening paragraph from One Minute Briefs and Ready10 agency’s ‘pop-up’ website that’s a tongue in cheek pop at Piers Morgan.

The news anchor and controversial media juggernaut has already driven two of this year’s biggest PR stunts from Greggs and Gillette and the website makes a joke at the broadcaster’s expense. It ‘informs’ other agencies on how they can capitalise on this new trend of provocation PR with a ‘Piers Morgan headline generator’.
