Today, I headed down to the French Quarter in New Orleans to take advantage of the beautiful weather and spend some quality time with the family. While the area is normally bustling with activity, it was like a whole other world today as preparations for both Mardi Gras and Super Bowl XLVII took over the historical Jackson Square and the surrounding neighborhood. Cameras, lights, staging, signage and extra security made my hometown look like a movie set.
Because you won’t be able to watch the Saints play in the Super Bowl next weekend, I have very little interest in actually watching the big game. But, I will tune in for the infamous commercials! If you have ever watched Super Bowl commercials, you know you are taking in the best that brands have to offer. Being a Brand Ambassador for Tide during the NFL season has been tons of fun, so I am looking forward to seeing their spot during the third quarter of the Super Bowl.
Tide’s hilarious new infomercial spoof for “Stain Savers” and a social media program called “Save it! Or Wash it in Tide!” will educate viewers on how to keep those memory filled stains on their clothing. For example, the wine stain from your first date with your spouse or the makeup stain from when you met your favorite celebrity are memories that you just can’t bear to wash away. Never fear, Tide invented “Stain Savers” which are nifty little patched that protect the stains from detergent.
Want a sneak peek? On January 21st Tide released the Stain Savers infomercial video as a teaser to its upcoming Super Bowl ad. Check it out below:
The full length ad will showcase the two teams facing off during Super Bowl XLVII, the Baltimore Ravens and the San Fransisco 49ers. The fun continues on Facebook and Twitter where Tide will be posting images depicting amusing stains that some would theoretically choose to keep. Make sure to play along when fans are asked if they would “Save it!” or “Wash it in Tide!”
Are you ready for the Big Game? Are you most looking forward to the actual football or the entertaining commercials?
