The 2011 Super Bowl ads were dominated by cars, TV shows, and movie trailers. Overall, I was disappointed with the quality of the commercials. It was obvious that advertising budgets have been slashed. Social media let me down, too. Only 2 commercials drove people to continue the commercial online, while a handful of brands displayed a Facebook and/or Twitter logo. I expected brands to promote their social media sites with calls to action in the commercial, much like the “Greatest Salesman in the World” from last year that drove viewers to continue viewing the story online. Chevy Cruze’s “Status” featured the new OnStar feature allowing you to check your Facebook status directly from the car. This is as good as social media got for the big show.
