Post-Super Bowl Morning Stir

-It’s safe to say Super Bowl XLVII was quite the spectacle last night, what between the power outages, Beyonce’s halftime show and, oh yeah, the game itself. Of course, wedged in between it all were the ads, and here’s an extended cut of CP+B’s entry for Best Buy starring Amy Poehler.

-In case you missed it during halftime, Red Stripe responded to Deutsch L.A.’s VW Super Bowl spot, which some deemed racist (see above).

-As we imagined, Budweiser’s “Brotherhood” spot from Anomaly topped USA Today’s annual Ad Meter, beating out the Tide spot starring a Joe Montana-shaped salsa stain. link

-In other A-B InBev-related news, legal experts believe the brand will eventually be successful in acquiring Modelo Group, the makers of Corona among other beers. link

-Meanwhile, the Dodge Ram “Farmer” spot ranked highest in the ADBOWL. link

-IPG-owned GolinHarris appointed Pierre-Hubert Meilhac as managing director for its Paris office, which works with clients including Foods International and Florida Department of Citrus.
