Pepsi NEXT Super Bowl Ad Trots Out Tired Parents-Not-Home Scenario

pepsi_next_sb_13.png

This TBWA\Chiat\Day LA-created Super Bowl Pepsi Nest ad could have been funny. It follows the over-played scenario in which parents return home to find offspring having a party. It's got all the usual antics including a guy duct taped to the ceiling.

Parents come home home with the usual horrified looks on their faces and exclaim, What's going on here?" Dad then says, "hold on" and...while a dude pours milk over himself (OK, that is kinda funny)...ponders the "real cola taste. And that's it. That's all.

Tired premise. Poor execution. But what do we know. Drunk Super Bowl fans will probablt love it and tweet it up the charts.

Speed Stick Saves Guy From 'I'd Fold Your Panties Any Day' Embarressment

speed_stick_yellow_panties.png

For its first-ever Super Bowl outing, Speed Stick will tackle the proverbial awkward laundromat encounter with the hot chick. Aligning with its protective promise that Speed Stick will only allow guys to sweat on the inside when in awkward situations, we see an impatient guy take a woman's laundry out of the drier so he can put his in.

Of course, there's a pair of tiny yellow panties atop the pile which falls to the floor. When he stands after picking them up, his eyes...and the camera...slide up the body of an attractive woman who asks, "What are you doing?"

Here's an extended version of Hyundai's Kia Sorento Space Babies Super bowl commercial. We think the ad will get a lot of laughs. After all, anyone who's ever had kids is very familiar with juggling, dancing and improvising after being asked, "Daddy/Mommy, where do babies come from?"

Hyundai Survives Gaspocalype in Canadian Super Bowl Ad

hyundai_gaspocalypse.png

Hmm. Too bad this commercial won't be airing during the Super Bowl in America. Only Canadians will get to see this Max Max-themed Hyundai commercial entitled Gaspocalypse.

The ad features Max Max-like characters racing after a man driving a Hyundai. Given the title of the ad, you can guess how it ends. But it's still amusing enough as well as action packed. The coda is kind of unnecessary but it doesn't really ruin the work.

Created by Innocean Canada, the ad was directed by Benji Weinstein of Steam Films/Tool of North America.
