For better or worse, the trend this year is for advertisers to release trailers for their Super Bowl ads . . . or the WHOLE THING . . . early. (–Honda’s “Ferris Bueller” ad was released this week . . . and some others came out last week.)
#1.) There’s an Acura commercial featuring JERRY SEINFELD, the Soup Nazi from “Seinfeld”, and JAY LENO. In the ad, Jerry finds out he’s second on the waiting list for the new Acura, and tries to bribe the #1 guy to give up his spot. It’s pretty great.
#2.) REGIS PHILBIN pops up in a Pepsi Max ad about a Coke Zero delivery guy who “cheats” on Coke for Pepsi. JENNIFER NETTLES of the country group SUGARLAND covered HANK WILLIAMS’ “Your Cheatin’ Heart” for the spot.
#3.) There’s also an H&M commercial featuring DAVID BECKHAM in his underwear. Basically, he just stands there while the camera moves around his body.
