It’s Super Bowl Sunday!

by Meredith Winnett

But I don’t care because the Patriots aren’t in it! So, as a Communication major hoping to get into PR and Marketing, I’m watching only for the advertisements.

I hope everyone saw the Bud Light commercials during the AFC and NFC championship games because I bet they’re going to be the best ads of the year. The series follows a man named Ian around as he is #UpForWhatever. He starts by attending a bachelorette party, then he goes to play ping pong with Arnold Schwarzenegger, there’s a llama, then Ian is on stage with One Republic. It’s pretty hilarious. Here’s a compiled video:

According to USA Today, the 2014 Super Bowl Ads can cost up to $4 million for a 30-second slot. WHO WOULD PAY THAT?! Budweiser, Bud Light, Doritos, Dannon, GM, Hyundai, GoDaddy, Source
