Rival Spark: Super Bowl Post Game; Part 1

But by way of a quick overview:

👉Our initial findings show that next day unprompted recall favours brands such as @pepsi, @Doritos, @budweiserusa and @dunkindonuts. These look to have translated broad appeal, a clear product story & celebrity into memorable moments, with some supported by multiple ads.

Check back in 25 days when we do our 30 day followup survey, to see if any brands have managed to establish staying power post SuperBowl. Additionally we'll be using Rival Curo to monitor share of search, search themes & retail uplift to give a long term picture of the game's ads.
