3D SUPER BOWL SPOT AVAILABLE FOR (ROUGH) PREVIEW

Tuesday, January 27th, 2009

Pepsi has released a rough cut version of their much anticipated 3-D Super Bowl commercial. This cut is a 60-second version and features Ray Lewis and a few other NFL stars (sorry guys, I only recognized Ray). The official spot airing in the Super Bowl is said to be a 90-second ad and a co-promotion for Dreamwork’s Monsters vs. Aliens movie. This rough cut contains a few images of the movie’s characters, but not many. We’re guessing the final version will more heavily promote the flick.

NFL ANNOUNCES WINNERS OF SUPER BOWL AD CONTEST

Tuesday, January 20th, 2009

For the third year, the NFL ran an online contest asking fans to vote for which player story they’d like to see in the league’s Super Bowl ad. A story by New Orleans Saints corner back Usama Young was chosen from more than 200 player stories as the winner. In the story (seen below and currently being turned into the final spot), Young talks about getting a job as a 14-year-old lemonade salesman in the Redskin’s RFK Field (now FedEx Field).

The winning fan story comes from Reginald Castilla. In his tale, Castilla recalls sneaking a portable TV into the trunk of his dad’s car so he could watch football in between his duties as a church usher boy. Castilla’s story can be seen here.
