Goodby created this commercial for Adobe, which aired the day after the Superbowl. The idea was to get past the Super Bowl hype and use real metrics to measure the success.
the monkey says "can you believe they spend millions of dollars on these things for what, 30 seconds? It's way cheaper to run it online. then they'll know who sees it, and whether it works.
While I love the idea of using the Super Bowl clichés (talking animals anyone?) the ad is a wee bit flawed in its logic.
Last night's Super Bowl was the most watched event in history. We're talking 111.3 million viewers. So while we can't say every last person saw the the Clydesdale spot, last night, a lot of people must have, because the "official,' youtube channel from Budweiser shows the spot having close to 6.4 million hits as of Monday late morning PST.
Since no one saw Adobe's spot last night, it shouldn't come as a surprise that the next day it only has 23,169 views.
