Not All Ads Make The Final Cut. Maybe Because They Were Too Funny. That’s Probably It. They Were Too Funny To Air And Got Banned
Creating the best Super Bowl commercial doesn’t necessarily mean being the best. It just means being better than the rest.
But sometimes advertisers take this strategy to the next level and end up creating commercials that can’t be aired. Too racy, too controversial or just plain offensive, it’s an advertising trick that works year in and year out. If history is any indicator, there were be at least one 2016 Super Bowl commercial that gets banned.
