NBC says that Super Bowl 2009 Ads really sold at $3m for a 30s Spot
 
 

NBC apparently has to make sure the world believes the record $3m price tags for the Super Bowl 43 commercials in the light of the current economic crisis.
According to the Mercury News NBC told reporters that many Super Bowl Ads sold for the $3m price tag that has been talked about since last year. NBC at least got $2.4m for each 30 second spot. The lowest price was paid by Anheuser-Bush as they bought Super Bowl Ad spots in bulk.
NBC sold 85% before September 2008, before the economic crisis really started to hit home. Still, Super Bowl is the best way to reach the most households in the United States. Companies who can afford to advertise in time of crisis will earn the rewards when people have money again. They will also take whatever money they have left now.
Adage argues the $3m price tag is a bargain for a Super Bowl Ad.

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. Do not forget to get your 3D Glasses for hot Super Bowl 3D Ads.

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.
