The Talker: Do Super Bowl ads really work?

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

Remember when you had to wait until the Super Bowl to see the commercials? Now, you can just go online.

One of the latest sneak-peeks released to FOX 32 is of a Coca-Cola ad. The ad depicts Vegas-style showgirls, cowboys, and so-called "band landers" of the Mad Max variety racing through the desert for a giant bottle of Coke. In a new twist, viewers get to pick the ending and vote for who gets the bottle.

We may not get as many Super Bowl ad previews this year as we have in the past. Some companies think they get more buzz by holding back.

The "Wonderful Pistachios" brand has not yet released its ad, but it has begun hyping the star of the ad: "Gangnam Style's" rapper Psy.

Mercedes is going all out with the pre-Super Bowl ad hype, with one featuring model Kate Upton. Mercedes is also putting out teasers of its other ads. Two of the teasers are 15 seconds, one is 30 seconds, and all use the same Rolling Stones song to describe the Mercedes as either hot, powerful, or mysterious.

The Super Bowl is February 3rd.

    The Hess triangle is a tiny piece of private property in Greenwich Village. Manhattan historian Joyce Gold explained the origins of the property: After World War I, New York City seized a beautiful residence and tore it down so it could extend Seventh Avenue and the west side subway below it. The city left the building's owner only a tiny scrap of property so small it requested he donate the triangle to make way for a sidewalk. The man refused, took the city to court and won.
