Super Bowl 49 delivered the goods on the field yesterday, with a last gasp victory for the New England Patriots, a brawl at the end and some impressive dancing sharks for Katy Perry’s halftime show. Once again, it proved to be a ratings goldmine for NBC, ranking as the “highest overnight rating in Super Bowl history and a four percent increase on last year”. That’s why advertisers pay around US$4.5 million for a nationwide spot—and why so many people seem to be interested in the ads. Herewith, a collection of the goods, bads and uglies.
From relatively small-scale beginnings in Whangarei in 1979, Michael Hill has over the last 36 years grown into an international enterprise that today has 280 stores globally employing about 2400 staff in a variety of roles.

Thankfully, Newcastle Brown Ale is here to be the voice of reason—and, in its quintessential ‘No Bollocks’ style, skewer the marketing tactics of other brands—by creating a hypothetical ad for the S**** B***.
The average game of NFL contains only 11 minutes of action, the rest of the three hours is spent on replays, shots of players, and commercials. It’s no wonder then that there’s so much hooplah around Super Bowl ads, because for some it’s the only entertainment amidst the spectacle that is American football.
It’s Super Bowl time. That time of year when Americans go mad for budget-blowing commercials, patriotic musicians belting out the Star-Spangled Banner and, oh yeah, American Football.
