In 2010, the cost of a 30-second commercial on average will be (according to CBS, who will carry the game telecast) approximately US $2.5 million. This excludes production costs and fees for actors, equipment, ad agencies, directors, crew and other personnel.
Sounds like a good expense for such a messed up economy, don't you think? So many chains of companies sucking down Fed dollars begging for a hand-out of their mega million dollar accounting and payroll troubles (read: greed). Good news!!! The economy has gotten better! We can afford to throw 2.6 million and then some out the door for 30-seconds of marketing magic.
Here’s a peak into some of the Superbowl commercials you will see this year:
-Dove commercial introducing new line of products for men.
-BoostMobile going to make their Superbowl premiere, but rumor is they’re doing it with hairy armpits.
-Dr Pepper to place an ad starring Gene Simmons from KISS
-Doritos will run an ad, and which one they air depends on you. People are voting on which spot should air in the Superbowl
Wanna guess who isn't getting any of my money this year? Not that anyone cares, I'm sure, but I'm sorry, there are just too many people suffering yet for anyone with a conscience to find peaace in putting money into companies still playing games.
Oh...btw...I know how to sign my name and not hide my convictions and values behind an anonymous hit and run:
If you have no convictions, if you don't have the personal morals and values to stand behidn what you say, you might as well be mute.
