The 2009 Super Bowl XLIII commercials gave more than just a view, they were artistic on many levels. When the entire world captured the best of Bridgestone and Doritos, some wondered, what about those Super Bowl commercials with music in them? Here are the top three picks.
First of the 2009 Super Bowl commercial ads which included music went to Hyundai. Hyundai offered much for their Super Bowl XLIII commercials, even though underscored by the popularity of other Super Bowl commercials. With the powerful sounds of the Smashing Pumpkins band, a car commercial has been born, as the Smashing Pumpkins played to the tune of a racing Hyundai car. The Smashing Pumkins has always been a great pick for commercial background sound, and in this case, the Smashing Pumkins delivered their smashing message.
Another Super Bowl XLIII commercial ad that rocked included the Irish known band of House of Pain. House of Pain has always been a personal favorite so seeing them Jump Around in the background sound was a true treat. House of Pain came into the game by way of a Bridgestone ad. In this 2009 Super Bowl XLIII commercial ad astronauts danced to House of Pain’s Jump Around while traveling to a distant planet only to have their space vehicle face the obstacle of poor consequences. If only they had Bridgestone. As this marked another Bridgestone moment.
Pepsi shared an incredible 2009 commercial ad during Super Bowl XLIII with Bob Dylan and Will.I.AM doing Bob’s “Forever Young”. Flashback moments of multiple gathering shots were flashed throughout this commercial adding a taste of memory and the changing times ahead. Pepsi did well, however Coke did better in the end.
Coke did not focus that much on music, although they managed to capture the interest through history’s greatest Super Bowl commercial with Mean Joe Green. In the new Coke ad, Mean Joe Green took on the face of Pittsburgh Steeler’s Mean Troy Polamalu where Troy tackles a Coke Brand Manager to the ground after he takes the Coke bottle that Troy was passing to a kid. This Coke 2009 Super Bowl commerical reflects the original commercial during the 1970’s all the way to the end. Troy then gives the kid a shirt that he ripped off of the second guy who tried to steal his Coke. Guessing between the Super Bowl commercials, both Pepsi and Coke…Coke wins. For those who can remember the emotional attraction between team member and fan, Coke keeps it alive. A true value to the Super Bowl commercials, past, present and future.
Doritos had no music included in their $1 million dollar winner’s ad by Joe and Dave Herbert. For a couple of guys who spent only a couple of thousand dollars when creating their Doritos commercial, they win big with a $1 million dollar check payback. Congrats to these fellows, as they were in the top five spot two-years ago for Super Bowl commercial ads but this time, they reached the top. Their ad included the famous snow globe throw into the vending machine to grab free Doritos.
