CAREERBUILDER LEAKS SUPER BOWL AD!

Tuesday, January 20th, 2009

Whoever said this year’s Super Bowl ads will be “subdued” obviously hasn’t seen CareerBuilder’s upcoming Super Bowl spot. Then again, not many people have…until now. Thanks to the Chicago Tribune’s website, one of CB’s two 30-second Super Bowl ads is available for public viewing. (We’re not going to ask how the Trib got ahold of it.)

In a word, the spot is HILARIOUS. In two more words, it’s WICKEDLY BRILLIANT. It’s so brilliant, we don’t even care that the embedded video (below) encroaches on the SpotBlog’s sidebar copy.

When it comes to breaking it down, we’re not sure which aspect of it to focus on. The screaming employee (we’ve all been there), the insulting boss (ditto), riding dolphins (I wish), the half-naked pedicurist co-worker (never, thank God), or punching a koala bear (no comment). From beginning to end, we hope this spot is a sign of things to come on February 1.

IN THIS YEAR’S ADS: MR. POTATO HEAD, SPACEMEN AND WILL.I.AM

_potatoxUSA Today reports that defending SpotBowl chamption Bridgestone-Firestone will use Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head and spacemen in it’s upcoming Super Bowl ads.

Also reported in the article, singer Will.i.am will appear in a Pepsi spot and Monster.com will promote its NFL partnership with a spot about the job search website’s “Director of Fandemonium” contest. The winner receives a $100,000 “signing bonus” and a trip to Super Bowl XVVIILIVIII (next year’s game) to be on the field for the game’s opening coin toss.
