Bridgestone Super Bowl 2012 Ad Teaser released
 
 

Bridgestone just published a 50 second teaser video for their upcoming Bridgestone Super Bowl 2012 Ad titled "Time to Perform." Bridgestone has already released a ton of videos since it announced the Bridgestone Performance Balls in early January. The videos have famous sports stars and well known sports reporters in them. So far the online Bridgestone Super Bowl 2012 campaign is not catching on.
The most viewed video in the series is the initial fake press conference with 350,000 views. All later videos are only attracting a couple thousand each. This is a far cry from what Volkswagen achieved with The Bark Side. Online for only one week, the video already has over 8,000,000 views.

My problem with the Bridgestone Super Bowl Ad campaign is that it is not that funny. The concept is very smart. Bridgestone can talk about their tire brands in a sports context making these brands much more accessible for consumers. The laugh out loud comedy is missing though and there is a risk that Super Bowl viewers will not take notice of the Bridgestone 2012 ads. Watch the Bridgestone Super Bowl 2012 Ad teaser video below. Via Super Bowl Ads for Geeks.

The Super Bowl 2012 is taking place in Indianapolis on February 5th, 2012. Just like last year, I4U News will again be featuring the Super Bowl for Geeks Guide. Of course the Super Bowl 2012 for Geeks Guide will be all about the Super Bowl Commercials and not the game. Watch the first 2012 Super Bowl Ads in our Super Bowl Ad Video Gallery.

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.
