Oreo dunks in the dark when Super Bowl backs out

While everyone was still talking about the commercials and complaining about the blackout on twitter, Oreo stole the show. "You can still dunk in the dark" reads this tweeted out Oreo ad, so timely so timely. Easily had more retweets than some super bowl commercials had viewers. Well played!

It pays to have a 15 person social media team on the payroll during the superbowl that can react to things in real time.

Touchdown: Oreo


UPDATED: Dodge "God Made A Farmer," a direct lift of

I know everyone’s going gaga about the Richard's Group's "God Made a Farmer" ad for Dodge because it cut through the clutter and was quiet and beautiful in an otherwise lackluster year of super bowl spots. And this is true. Paul Harvey's voice still resonates long after he made this speech back in the 1970's.

But. I guess I would like it more if didn’t do the exact same spot, right down to using Paul Harvey's voice and the execution (though not as heavily retouched) two years ago.

Do we still like it as much?
