If you’re like me, you’ve been clicking your browser’s “refresh” button at AdWeek’s Super Bowl Ad Tracker to get the latest on which brand’s are teasing or releasing their commercials before the big game on Sunday.
If there is a recipe for cooking up a great Super Bowl ad, it seems like it would consist of heaping servings of humor, social media interaction, PUPPIES, with a generous sprinkling of patriotism (narrated by a folk icon, or starring a gorgeous Paralympic athlete), all with a good grip on the ol’ American heartstrings.
But the most memorable ad spot comes from 2000. A commercial that has outlasted even the company it endorsed. It somehow is the perfect combo of silliness, Americana, and cuteness. Featuring a cast of cowboys wielding lint-rollers and lassos, your seven layer dip has nothing on the layers of this masterpiece.
