USA Today Facebook Ad Meter wins Doritos Super Bowl 2012 Ad Sling Baby

Feb 8 2012, 2:27am CST | by , in News | Super Bowl

The Super Bowl 2012 just got more expensive for Doritos. The Doritos Super Bowl 2012 Ad titled Sling Baby won the Facebook version of the USA Today Ad Meter. The Doritos Super Bowl Ad titled Man's Best Friend won the traditional USA Today Ad Meter 2012.

The USA TODAY Facebook Super Bowl Ad Meter 2012 winner has been announced and Doritos Super Bowl Ad "Sling Baby" came out on top for 2012. The ad features a grandmother who creates a way to sling her grandson – with a rubber band-like setup - across the yard to grab a Doritos bag from a taunting boy.  

The Facebook community rated the Doritos Super Bowl ad Sling Baby a 4.33 (on a scale of 1 to 5 stars). Doritos has now to pay $1 million to the creators of the Sling Baby Ad. Doritos has already awarded $1 million to the creator of the other Doritos Super Bowl 2012 Ad that won the traditional, panel based USA Today Ad Meter. 

It is quite astonishing that Doritos took both top spots of the USA Today Ad Meters. It also worth noting that the Man's Best Friend ad did not make it into the top 5 of the Facebook USA Today Ad Meter. 

The Doritos Crash the Super Bowl ad competition again sourced the best Super Bowl Ads again. Doritos has already won several times since the first Crash the Super Bowl open ad competition.

The top five USA TODAY Facebook Super Bowl Ad Meter 2012: 

  1. Doritos – Sling Baby – 4.33
  2. Bud Light – Weego – 4.25
  3. Kia – A Dream Car. For Real Life. – 4.23*
  4. Chrysler – It's Halftime In America – 4.23*
  5. M&Ms – Ms. Brown/Just My Shell– 4.22

 * In the event of a ratings tie, higher rank goes to the ad that received the larger number of votes.

The USA TODAY Facebook Super Bowl Ad meter voting was open to Facebook's more than 800 million global users. Facebook users could view, rate and share all the national ads that aired during the game.  Voting began right after the first ad aired during the Super Bowl on Sunday night and continued until 6:00 p.m. ET on Tuesday.

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.
