The price to air a Super Bowl 43 commercial on NBC is this year a record $3m. AdAge argues that this huge price tag is still a bargain even in a downward economy.
AdAge describes the success some companies are having with their Super Bowl Ads. Anheuser-Busch for instance says that Super Bowl week is now the 7th biggest selling week of the year for the brewer and it is not in summer.
Apparently the Budweiser brewer reached 46% of adult beer drinkers during last year's Super Bowl. That is quite impressive and therefore no wonder, that companies are willing to pay the $3 million for a Super Bowl ad.
The article also mentions GoDaddy. We already reported about their tremendous success with their risky Super Bowl Ads here.
Super Bowl 2009 will be happening on Sunday February 1st. This Super Bowl is a treat for geeks that is why we will cover it even more than in 2008. Despite the recession a 30 second Super Bowl Ad costs about $3m and there should be lots of must see Commercials again. There will be for instance the first 3D Super Bowl Ads and lots of Super Bowl Ads featuring new 2009 Sci-fi Movies including the new Star Trek and the next Transformers movie. So make sure you have your Super Bowl sized LCD HDTV and NFL Gear ready.
