OK Go Needing – Getting – Super Bowl Ad

The teaser ad for this full length video made me look for it. This has to be one of the best music videos and commercials for the Super Bowl. I usually watch the Super Bowl for the ads.

A lot went into making this video – Watch it first and see all the events that went into making this.

YouTube Preview Image

There was 55 Piano’s, too many guitars and over 1,100 various musical instruments to make up this video. I really is amazing how OK Go get to do all this. I love their creativity and salute them. I hope the keep this up.

OK Go set up over 1000 instruments over two miles of desert outside Los Angeles. A Chevy Sonic was outfitted with retractable pneumatic arms designed to play the instruments, and the band recorded this version of Needing/Getting, singing as they played the instrument array with the car. The video took 4 months of preparation and 4 days of shooting and recording. There are no ringers or stand-ins; Damian took stunt driving lessons. Each piano had the lowest octaves tuned to the same note so that they’d play the right note no matter where they were struck.

Well – It is that time of the year again – The Super Bowl Just finished a few hours ago and all the ads are up on YouTube for you to vote on your favorite ad.

This year the creative ads were much better then last year. My votes goes to the following few ads.

5th Place – I loved the Pepsi -ad with Justin Timberlake because he gets hit, hurt and knocked out. :-) Sorry Justin – Just thought it was quite funny. Plus Anyone want to give me their Pepsi Points – Feel Free to Add them to the comments section. They will go to good use. (Wink Wink)

4th place – I have to say the Breathing Fire with Bud Light was Good – First Romantic and then….

3rd and 2nd – I would have to give it to Bridgestone for two of their ads:

and Unexpected Objects in Road – Loved the Ending well I like the ending in my mind better.

Merlins Take on the Super Bowl Ads

So this will sorta be off topic today – But I watched the Super Bow last evening – I usually enjoy watching for the advertisements more then the game its self (Except last year when the Steelers were in it) I have to say I really was disappointed this year. There really was no one advertisement that just really stood out.


I have to admit I did like the Snickers Commercial Called The Kiss, and I liked the FedEx Commercial and the First Office on the moon.

The Taco Bell Commercial with the two lions (I felt was pretty lame – But at least it was original) 

The Coke Commercial are all ones I have seen in the past and so don't get a vote for me as I thought the super bowl commercials were to be new and exciting. 

I did like the the commercial for e-trade and what you can do with one finger. That was creative.

The Bud Commercial for the Beer stealing crabs – was just a 3.0 out of 5.0 Creative but why?

The Career Builder Commercials – Those were much better then the monkey commercials from last year. Not even sure it was for the same company but still better.

And that sales Genie commercial – just plain dumb.

But have to give too thumbs up to Sierra Mist for the Beard Comb Over. Original and Creative.

I also have to give two thumbs up for Nation Wide and the Life Comes at you Fast and K-Fed.

The Pittsburgh Steelers

Go Steelers – What a game to watch yesterday – Can’t wait to watch the SuperBowl Game.

And not just to watch the GoDaddy.com Ads either. – I hear they are causing a stir this year as well as they did in the past and I understand that the NFL has to “OK” the ads that will air during the game.

For more info check out Bob Parson’s Blog from GoDaddy.com
