Super Bowl Ads to Change Forever because of H&M Super Bowl Commerical

Forget for a moment that David Beckham will likely be shirtless in this Super Bowl ad for H&M. Because the really eye-opening part is not Beckham, but a new technology that lets shoppers buy goods directly from the TV.

The 30-second spot will air during the second quarter of Super Bowl XLVIII and viewers with Samsung smart TVs can buy featured H&M products directly from the TV. It’s the first example of a new form of commerce called t-commerce, and it’s been a long time coming.

For more than a decade, we’ve heard about how connected TVs will revolutionize shopping. More than just offering a new channel similar to online or mobile, t-commerce promises to make advertising immediate. If seeing an ad can inspire someone to go out (or online) and buy something, what happens if they can buy it immediately, without so much as changing the channel?

“This is a game-changer for the advertising industry,” said Mike Fitzsimmons, CEO of Delivery Agent, the company behind the shoppable ad. “We are collectively redefining the power and effectiveness of television advertising. Years ago, the world talked about the potential associated with buying Jennifer Aniston’s sweater. H&M, in an industry first, will now realize that potential by making their Super Bowl XLVIII ad actionable and directly measurable.”

H&M’s ad will be the first of its kind. Will viewers respond? Or will they just be enamored of a shirtless Beckham? Marketers, retailers and technology companies are waiting anxiously to find out.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
