Super Bowl Commercial History

In 2011, the average price of a 30-second advertising spot during the 46th Superbowl reached 3.5 million dollars making a record. However, the 2022 Super Bowl commercial will cost around 7 million dollars, almost double the cost.

With time, the Super Bowl has become the most-watched TV event in the US. The challenge for advertisers is to attract nearly 100 million viewers with the most original spot possible.

Here, we have the opportunity to take you back to the most iconic Super Bowl Commercials.

Doritos 1998

Intel 2010

This Super Bowl commercial used generational markers in terms of technology to highlight the brand’s innovative nature.

Volkswagen 2011

Any commercial set with the Star Wars theme is already something promising, in addition to the fact that the creators of said short showed the ingenuity to put some comedy with a young Darth Vader who has problems starting the vehicle.

It has more than 50 million views on YouTube. But it would be a shame to overlook the New Beetle, a vehicle from the same brand, which also caused a sensation for its aesthetic quality.

Pepsi with Cindy Crawford 1992

Since the 90s, there were already ads that managed to attract the eyes of millions. The soft drink is an excellent example as it had the supermodel Crawford, who arrived at a gas station and monopolized the eyes of those present.

Mountain Dew 2020

As it’s an event for the general public, violence or any situation that may alarm the youngest members of the audience is avoided. That’s why it was surprising that Mountain Dew displayed a scene from horror movies. They hired Bryan Cranston to recreate a scene from The Shining.

Snickers 2010

While the phrase “You’re not you when you’re hungry” has become synonymous with this nutty candy, it was actually born during this 2010 spot featuring the infamous actress. This Super Bowl Commerical was a classic for so many reasons.
