So not only did last nights SuperBowl throw up the usual frenzy surrounding those big budget commercials (not to mention some fantastic drama on the field and a pretty brilliant half-time show), but the 3rd quarter power outtage provided brands with a further opportunity to jump into the conversation too. This was the first SuperBowl that I actually followed live on Twitter and I was seriously impressed to see how quickly some brands reacted to the blackout.
Bravo to the very savvy digital marketers at Oreo, LinkedIn, Audi and Tide, to name but a few, that put out Tweets ridiculing the debacle within minutes of it happening. It goes to show what a great marketing opportunity the SuperBowl can be to brands, even the ones that don’t splash out for a $4 million thirty second TV spot.
Power out? No problem. twitter.com/Oreo/status/29…
