From Mad Men to Twitter Feeds: How Advertising is Evolving


One out of 10 people watch the Super Bowl just for the commercials. But about 50 percent of Tivo owners will fast forward through commercials on the biggest day of television advertising. With dwindling financial resources, technology and social media, advertisers are forced to come up with new ways to sell their products or services. Instead of forking over 2.8 million dollars per 30-second spot, some companies are putting that money to different use. Pepsi, for one, is giving it away and creating a fairly substantial buzz in the process. Join Dan Moulthrop and guests for a Super Bowl ad recap and a look at how advertising has evolved over the years.David Moore, President & Executive Creative Director, Liggett Stashower
