With prices in the region of $2.8 million for a 30-second advert, last Sunday’s Super Bowl game proved yet again that the American Football final is the largest single media event of the year. When you consider that since Janet Jackson‘s (in)famous “wardrobe malfunction” several years ago, the half-time entertainment is now geared towards classic rock (Springsteen, Prince and this year, The Who), then the audience of non-football fans is also considerable…

With an average US audience of 106.5 million viewers, this was the most-watched Super Bowl ever as well as the most-watched program of any kind in American television history, beating the 27-year-long record previously held by the final episode of M*A*S*H, “Goodbye, Farewell and Amen“, watched by 105.97 million viewers. An estimated 153.4 million total viewers watched all or part of the game. (from Wikipedia)

So what about the adverts? Good question. Here are three of our favourites:

1. The Simpsons Coke ad.

2. Teleflora “Talking Flowers”

3. Bud Light in a parody of “Lost”

And yes, there was also a football final, which was won (for the first time) by the New Orleans Saintsmore information at Wikipedia.
