Today, I’d like to depart from what everyone else seems to be talking about today. Enough of the Meryl Srreep/Trump Twitter war already. I understand that it was news this morning, but by 6PM tonight I had had enough. Is is really necessary for every single news outlet on the planet to report the same regurgitated news all day long?
So, I set out to find something more exciting to talk about tonight. I came across an interesting article about The Yankees public relations woes and empty seats, but the commentary was not on a secured site so I didn’t feel comfortable sharing it with you.
Then I searched empty seats, and came up with a couple more good articles, but to be honest with you, sports aren’t just my thing. But, then I thought . . .
“Hey! The Super Bowl is coming! And that means ads! I wonder if some of them are being announced yet?”
And you know what? They are! Yippee!
Here’s a teaser about some of what is in store for this year’s Super Bowl ads
- Audi’s Super Bowl Ad 2017
- Xerox is resurrecting a vintage ad with a new twist
- Turbo Tax announces ad for Super Bowl LI
- Joe Flacco stars in the Pepsi/Tostitos ad
- Honda’s CR-V ad
- Go Daddy to introduce a new product during Super Bowl 2017
- Proctor and Gamble has 2 ads this year

Guess who won’t be airing an ad during the Super Bowl this year?
Frito-Lay has decided that they just didn’t have anything to say this year and are taking a year off to reevaluate their “marketing strategy” (Chicago bureau chief E.J. Schultz of Advertising Age told ABC News).
“If you’re going to spend that kind of money,” Ad Age’s Schultz said, “you got to have something really important to say or else it’s going to be overshadowed by the other ads around it.”
What do you think about Frito-Lay’s decision? Who do you think will be the winners and losers of the Super Bowl LI ads? Who do you think will be facing public relations success or failure on social media due to their ads?

As always, thanks for reading and sharing!
