NFL Super Bowl Ads 2011 unveiled

The NFL (National Football League) today announced to air two TV commercials during the Super Bowl 2011. You would think that the NFL gets enough exposure through the game itself, but apparently they want to give back to the fans with entertaining Super Bowl ads. The NFL Super Bowl ads include a 60 seconds and a 30 second spot.

"The Super Bowl has become America's appointment television from coast to coast and generation to generation," said Mark Waller, Chief Marketing Officer of the NFL. "We wanted our advertising to entertain and thank NFL fans, the best fans ever."

The main NFL Super Bowl ad is called "American Family" that celebrates the entertainment and pop culture phenomenon the Super Bowl has become. It features the greatest collection of television talent ever assembled, over 40 stars, living and dead, who graced nearly 20 of the most famous, popular shows of the last several decades.

Many of America's favorite stars from Alf, Beverly Hills 90210, Happy Days, The Brady Bunch, Cheers, The Dukes of Hazard, Family Matters, Full House, Seinfeld, GLEE, How I Met Your Mother, Modern Family, Family Guy, The Simpsons, The Office, Sesame Street, The Golden Girls and The Sopranos make cameos. Damn, we have to update your Super Bowl Ad Celebrity List with lots of new names.

This NFL Super Bowl commercial is a montage of quick cuts as America's most beloved TV family gathers, and the anticipation builds, for the big game.  The creative twist, and pay-off for the viewers, is that every scene has been contemporized with today's NFL branding. The Sopranos wear Jets jerseys; the Fonz taps a flat-screen TV playing Fox Sports, Norm enters Cheers with New England Patriots gear. A simple slate ends the spot with the message "Best. Fans. Ever," the NFL logo, and one more surprise. The commercial will air in the third quarter of the game.

The second NFL Super Bowl ad is titled Gadget. The ad features a young NFL fan effortlessly accessing the NFL content on NFL-owned media platforms across the entire year. While watching NFL Network on his flat-screen TV, he grabs it off the wall as it morphs into his tablet, where he watches coverage of the NFL Draft. From there his tablet changes into his laptop, where he visits for Fantasy news and video highlights. Then his laptop morphs into his mobile device, where he watches NFL Network's NFL RedZone channel.

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.
