Super Bowl advertising is big entertainment, and everyone wants to voice their opinion
Grand Rapids, MI (PRWEB) January 30, 2009
Hanon McKendry invites Super Bowl ad fans and armchair critics to vote for their favorite Super Bowl commercials during the big game on Sun., Feb. 1 at http://www.superadbowl.com. Voting begins at the end of the first quarter.
As votes are cast, results will be immediately tabulated and posted so visitors to superadbowl.com will be able to see how their picks compare to those of Super Bowl ad fans around the world.
"Super Bowl advertising is big entertainment, and everyone wants to voice their opinion," said branding and advertising agency Hanon McKendry founder and principal Bill McKendry. "We wanted to give average viewers a place to weigh in, in real time, on the ads they think hit the mark."
Hanon McKendry's Super Bowl Poll, conducted annually by Harris Interactive, consistently shows that the ads are a significant draw on game day. This year's poll results, released today, show that over 54 percent of U.S. adults who plan to tune in to Super Bowl XLIII will do so as much or more for the commercials as for the game.
"As more and more Super Bowl advertisers maximize interactive opportunities, viewers are getting in the game and watching with their laptops by their sides," observed Pete Brand, co-founder of MINDSCAPE at Hanon McKendry, the branding firm's interactive division. "Superadbowl.com gives those interactive viewers a place to go, immediately, and be part of the action."
Visitors to http://www.superadbowl.com will be able to cast their votes for one favorite commercial from each quarter. Voting will open at the end of the first quarter and will remain open through February 3.
