The Super Bowl is to America what FIFA World Cup is to the rest of the world, a game so hysterical it brings America to its sporting knees. And in the true American character, dollars and capitalism are on parade. In some cynical quarters, Super Bowl is regarded as the climax of consumerism as brands dip into deep pockets to buy advertising slots. Let this sink in – 30 seconds slot this year costs over $5 million dollars. Again, let that sink in.
Also – in truer American character, this year’s ads are filled with irreverence, humour, social commentary (read as trolling Donald Trump), and deadpan silliness.
