Super Bowl 50 Ads on Youtube AdBlitz Launches Feb. 2

Google's Youtube is ready for Super Bowl 50 with AdBlitz 2016.

Google announced AdBlitz 2016. Youtube will host again all Super Bowl 50 ads on the Youtube AdBlitz channel. Last year Youtube users watched 840 million minutes of Super Bowl commercials on Youtube.

During the Big Game, fans raked up 300,000 hours of Super Bowl ads. Considering that most Super Bowl ads are 30 seconds long, Super Bowl fans watch 36 million Super Bowl ads in about 3 and a half hours last year. That is actually not that much as the Super Bowl draws an audience of about 120 million. So only about one in four watch one Super Bowl ad online during the game.

There is still a lot of room of growth for online Super Bowl ad viewing. Google says that each year, advertisers release their Super Bowl ads earlier and earlier on Youtube. I would disagree here. Last year the first Super Bowl ad was released on January 14. We have now January 21 and so far no Super Bowl 50 commercial has been released. 

What we observe is that the attention span of people has shrunk considerably over the last few years. Three or four years ago, interest in Super Bowl ads was already very high early January. We don't see much interest so far. Marketers know this and see this on the low view numbers of their teasers and announcements.

Everything will be released at the earliest in the week before Super Bowl 50. There is a big shift again to release Super Bowl ads on Game Day and not before. Most of the commercials will though be released in the days before Super Bowl Sunday, Feb. 7.

Youtube will also feature Youtube Creators in an exclusive series for YouTube AdBlitz themed "How to Win Game Day" that we’ll release the week leading up to the game. The series will be hosted by Jake and Amir with Flula as the band leader. And we’ll also release football-themed videos from some of our biggest creators, including videos from MyLifeAsEva, Hannah Hart and fouseyTUBE.

The Youtube AdBlitz voting will begin right the game and will be open until 11:59 p.m. ET on February 10 to cast votes. Watch below Youtube's teaser for the Youtube AdBlitz 2016.
