As always, the Super Bowl drew in big budget commercials from Budweiser, Doritos and the usual suspects to fill the pricey 30-second spots.Â But, one newcomer into the fold this year was Google.Â Â Google, had previously been against spending massive amounts of money on Super Bowl spots, let alone any TV advertising.Â Â The commerical, features many searches about someone on a business trip to Paris, meeting a girl, and the several events that followed.Â The video had actually drawn attention on YouTube for 3 months prior to the Super Bowl. Google Chief Eric Schmidt explained in a blog post Sunday, “We didn’t set out to do a Super Bowl ad, or even a TV ad for search.Â Our goal was simply to createÂ a seriesÂ of short online videos about our products and our users, and how they interact. But we liked this video so much, and it’s had such a positive reaction on YouTube, that we decided to share it with a wider audience.”Â
After it aired during the Super Bowl, many TV critics and viewers were a buzz with excitement.Â The commercial shows how useful Google can be used in every day life.Â And thisÂ TV spot, in particular, had a very sweet and romantic ending.Â
What do you guys think of the “little commercial that could?”Â Did you have any other favorite commercials from the Super Bowl?
