2016 Super Bowl 50 Ad Watch: Avocados from Mexico “Avos In Space”

In a galaxy not so far from here, a group of aliens tour the Museum of Earthly Wonders to see all the unique stuff the little blue planet has to offer in Avocados from Mexico's hilariously entertaining 2016 Super Bowl commercial.

Prepare to learn all there is to know about Earth’s strange inhabitants through fascinating and mysterious earthly artifacts such as the commercial airliner, emojis, Scott Baio and that dress. Although this museum has curated some of Earth’s most valuable treasures only one stands out above the rest, the Mexican avocado.

Super Bowl 50 Ad Watch: PayPal Move Over Old Money “There’s a New Money in Town”

PayPal is investing big money to introduce its "global vision for the future of money" with this new commercial set to air during the first quarter of the 2016 Super Bowl 50. Move over Old Money. There’s a New Money in Town...

Greg Fisher, the PayPal's vp of global brand marketing, described the ad as "more than a commercial." It will, he said, explain how the company plans to "empower people and businesses to move and manage money securely, efficiently and affordably" now that PayPal has separated from eBay.

The Super Bowl appearance heralds the launch of a major brand campaign which, Fisher said, is "designed to start a larger conversation about a reimagined financial world that must include everyone." [source: AdWeek]

FirstBank, Ode to Millennials “No Pants” Regional Super Bowl 50 Commercial

The branding approach, atypical for FirstBank, aims to bring in new savings accounts from a generation that is famously savings-averse. The key insight, based on services such as Airbnon, Car2Go, was that Millennials do “save”; they share.
The spot runs regionally on the Super Bowl in Colorado and in Arizona. After that it will appear mainly on late night and sports programming.

"Millennials, are you the most money-saving savvy generation since the Greatest Generation of the 30’s and 40’s? Perhaps. You certainly enjoy sharing things – bikes, music, cars, streaming TV logins, even pants – apparently. We like to think you do this to save money, but the truth is probably closer to your generation being the most inclusive, most open-minded and the friendliest. So FirstBank is giving you a Mile-High salute during this year’s big game."
