The Super Bowl is one of the most-watched events on television every year, and it’s not just because of the football. Sports lovers and those who don’t pay any attention to athletics gather around the television each year to take in the big game—and some of the biggest commercials you’ll ever see. Companies pay huge amounts of money for commercial spots during the Super Bowl, and the video campaigns are often pushed online as well. Keep reading for a look at a few of the top Super Bowl commercials that have gone viral over the years.
“1984” by Apple
This one-minute commercial aired decades ago, but is still one of the most iconic Super Bowl commercials. Inspired by the George Orwell book, the commercial uses eerie yet powerful imagery to get its point across. The commercial enticed viewers to anticipate the launch of Macintosh, and helped to further establish the Apple brand in the minds of American consumers. Though the video production is not as high-tech as a commercial you might see today, it still conveys a strong message to viewers.
“Ozzy and Bieber” by Best Buy
“Bieber Fever” was sweeping the nation at the time this commercial aired in 2011. By having two stars from different generations, Best Buy was able to appeal to a broad range of ages in this commercial. Both Ozzy Osbourne and Justin Bieber are able to make jokes at their own expense, and the humor makes the ad even more relatable and memorable.
“The Force” by Volkswagen
2011 was a good year for Super Bowl commercials, producing this memorable Volkswagen ad. The commercial plays off of childhood nostalgia, as well as the ever-popular Star Wars movie series. In the ad, we see a child dressed as Darth Vader attempting to use “the force” to control various objects—to no avail. When his father comes home in a new Volkswagen, however, little Vader is in for a surprise.
