In a nail biter, the Baltimore Ravens topped the San Francisco 49ers during the Super Bowl XLVII, during which a half-hour long blackout added to the drama. But in between plays there were 10 Super Bowl ads that stood out. Here are the ads that will be the buzz around the water cooler — and on social media sites — on Monday.
1. Chrysler’s two-minute spot during halftime of the Super Bowl was a salute to troops and their families. The ad featured Oprah Winfrey reading a letter from the Jeep brand to encourage families to stay hopeful until their loved ones return.
2. Chrysler also scored with a Ram ad that saluted farmers featuring radio broadcaster Paul Harvey’s 1978 “So God Made a Farmer” address, which talks about the heartiness of farmers. It ran while documentary-style still images of farmers past and present played.
