For those of you, like me, who despise the NFL, this may be welcome news to you. Many big-name businesses are deciding against purchasing Super Bowl ads this year; instead, they’re dumping their money into… Chinese Wuhan Virus awareness?
Oh well, anything that hastens the demise of the NFL is fine by me.
Budweiser is the latest corporation to back out of advertising during this year’s broadcast, choosing instead to join a public awareness campaign for the COVID-19 vaccine. For the first time in 37 years, the company won’t air its game-stealing commercials, Anheuser-Busch, which owns Budweiser, announced Monday.
Other Super Bowl commercial giants such as Pepsi, Coke and Hyundai will also take a step back from this year’s game, reallocating their funds in light of the pandemic. Pepsi, for instance, will focus primarily on its halftime show.
Don’t let Big Business fool you; this has little to do with Chinese Wuhan Virus messaging, and everything to do with the Woke Twitter Addicts. None of these businesses want to be canceled, so they’re all backing off.
“There is trepidation around Super Bowl advertising this year,” Bill Oberlander, co-founder and executive creative of ad agency Oberlander recently told The Post. “For the Super Bowl, you generally go big or go home. I think brands are going home rather than spending tens of millions of dollars and not getting it right. They’re saying, ‘Let’s wait until this sh*t storm clears.’”
Gillette lost $8 billion in ad revenue after they produced that awful “Toxic Masculinity” ad, and ensured I would never buy any of their products again. These CEOs are scared to death of the Woke Twitter Mobs, so many are saying it’s not worth the rick. They’re right, and I applaud them for shunning the NFL.
