Advertisers pay top dollar each year to have 30 second spots run during the Super Bowl. And with good reason, because watching the Super Bowl has almost become more about the commercials than the actual game.
While the same can not be said of the Olympics, commercials are still a big part of the viewing experience. I had almost forgotten about how awesomely specific and amazing the commercials can be until I was bombarded with a whole slew of them this weekend.
So, for the next week or so I'll be posting various ads here, asking you guys to leave comments on your favorite ones. Before all is said and done, there could be a commercial showdown of Olympic proportions.
First up: a commercial from Proctor and Gamble that immediately stole my heart, mostly because I'm a sucker for kids in sports gear.
This was the first of many mom-centric ads I saw over the weekend. I'll be sure to post a few others over the next week to see which one pulls at the heart strings the most.
Please be sure to note your favorites over the next week, otherwise this contest will be decided in a purely subjective fashion.
Happy Mardi Gras everyone! Go Team USA!
