Super Bowl ads for the 2014 game are already popping up online and on television. While some of the 2014 Super Bowl ads are being held back for the game itself, the money being put into these commercials has led some companies to revealing them early. According to a report from Wednesday (Jan. 29), the cost for one 30-second spot went up to $4 million this year. It's an expensive investment that needs to pay off by being memorable.
The notable companies return again this year, with Wonderful Pistachios, Bud Light, Budweiser, Toyota, Kia, and Cheerios already garnering attention for what they have planned. Stephen Colbert, Anna Kendrick, and Kermit the Frog are just some of the celebrities that will also be appearing in the 30-second spots. There is even a site that has been set up to showcase all of the commercials that have already been released.
Early reviews suggest that the 2014 Super Bowl ads are much more mature than has been the case in the past. There aren't any close-up kisses from Godaddy.com and there aren't any overly sexual Axe body spray commercials either. In other words, it looks like advertisers are going for a more family-friendly approach this year and that should serve to entertain those viewers that don't care very much about the Seattle Seahawks or Denver Broncos.
