Super Bowl 50… What to Expect

Super Bowl 50 is finally set after both the Denver Broncos and Carolina Panthers won their conference championship games on January 24th. The game will be played at Levi’s Stadium, home of the San Francisco 49ers.ball-674372_960_720

The theme of the upcoming Super Bowl is new school versus old school, with Cam Newton, a young rising star on the Panthers will taking on the future Hall of Famer, Peyton Manning of the Broncos. This may very well be Peyton’s final game after a injury-riddled season. While we know the Super Bowl, it’s halftime show, and the creative commercials peppered in between always draws in a ton of viewers, the buzz amplified after these two teams punched their ticket to Santa Clara.

Many brands have already given glimpses about the ads they will be releasing on Super Bowl Sunday. Do you want to know what the average cost of 30 second slot during the the Super Bowl is? Just a mere $5 million. It is unbelievable how much these ads pay to get on the air.

Each year, television networks CBS, FOX, and NBC alternate airing the Super Bowl. This year, CBS is scheduled to host it and recently announced they wouldn’t be surprised if some ads would pay upwards of $6 million for a time slot.

Here are few ads that will make their way to the biggest sporting event in America.

Acura. You will be able to view this Acura ad during first quarter of the game, so you won’t have to wait too long for it. Acura will be making big announcement as they are launching a new automobile that should get consumers hyped: the NSX Supercar. Acura is hoping it will be one of the hottest cars out on the market, capitolizing off of the Super Bowl in order to show the world how incredible it really is. According to I4U News, this will be the most expensive car ever advertised in a Super Bowl ad.

Budweiser. Budweiser was a big hit the during the past few Super Bowls because America fell love with the gorgeous labrador puppies that were shown on their ads. However, say bye-bye to the puppies this year and say hello to comedy powerhouses Amy Schumer and Seth Rogan. I know it might be devastating news for the fans of the cuter things in life, but the puppies have no impact on beer sales and therefore, it is time for a change.

Stay tuned for part two of this post, where I talk about more ads to look for during the Super Bowl, the halftime show, and ticket prices!
