Top 5 Most Viral Super Bowl Ads: Acura breaks Volkswagen Record
 
 

The 46th Super Bowl is taking place today in the Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. The Giants will face the Patriots. We do not know how the game will end yet, but we know the results  of another game. The online wars of the 2012 Super Bowl Ads before the Super Bowl has ended.

Most 2012 Super Bowl advertisers have released their ads and social campaigns to create buzz for their expensive Super Bowl ads. There are some advertisers like Chrysler that hold back and did not release their Super Bowl commercials yet. For the most part though the Super Bowl ads are online already. Our 2012 Super Bowl Ads Video Library counts 38 ads.

At the end of January, Volkswagen was again ahead in the online Super Bowl ads battle like last year with the release of the teaser video The Bark Side that went immediately viral and has now over 11 million views.

Volkswagen's initial viral success with the teaser video The Bark Side is not translating into views for the actual Volkswagen Super Bowl 2012 Ad.

Honda is the new winner of the online Super Bowl Ads wars of 2012.

The Japanese car maker landed a surprise hit with the release of a 10 second teaser video late last week featuring Matthew Broderick as Ferris Bueller. Honda released an extended version of the Super Bowl commercial featuring Matthew Broderick titled "Matthew's Day Off" that has now over 11 million views.
But that is not even the winning Super Bowl Ad for Honda.

Honda owned Acura comes out on top with over 14 million views with the Acura Super Bowl 2012 Ad titled "Transactions."  This is one million more views than the Volkswagen Super Bowl 2011 had before the broadcast of the Super Bowl game.

In the Acura commercial, Jerry Seinfeld tries to negotiate a deal to be the first to own the unreleased 2014 Acura NSX. He is using props and characters from his classic comedy show Seinfeld including the Soup Nazi, Last living Munchkin and more. For me the Jerry Seinfeld Super Bowl Commercial is the best ad of Super Bowl XLVI. Jerry Seinfeld is what the Mini Darth Vader was in 2011. 

Do not miss the Acura Web Extras. Jerry Seinfeld is hilarious in every one of these skids. Watch them all now on Super Bowl Ads for Geeks.

The Audi Super Bowl 2012 Ad still ranks 3rd  with 4 million views followed by the Volkswagen Super Bowl 2012 Ad with 3.7 million and the Chevy Super Bowl 2012 Ad titled Happy Grad with 1.3 million views.

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.
