SUPER BOWL ADS LECTURE AMERICA ON GIRL POWER, WIND POWER AND OBJECTIFYING MERMAIDS

Super Bowl advertisers used the massive platform to  lecture Americans  on a number of topics — from using clean energy and respecting the media to the proper treatment of mermaids in the age of #MeToo.

CBS, the network that hosted the big game, promoted “girl power” with an ad about girls playing football — and sponsor Budweiser took the time to note that the world-famous St. Louis-based company is now brewing its signature beers with wind power.

 

Spiked Seltzer’s spot featured two mermaids pitching their idea to sharks — but the mermaids were quite literally buttoned up. Instead of the typical seashell-bra top made famous in any number of depictions of mermaids, the two in this particular ad wore shirts that bared a little midriff but were otherwise buttoned all the way to their necks.
