TV Commercial Super Bowl Review
Heart or Humor
FCB Chicago creates again the Super Bowl TV Commercial for Michelob ULTRA. This time the marketing message is “Staying fit is only worth it if you can enjoy it. And there’s no better way to enjoy it than with the superior taste of Michelob ULTRA.”
The press release below:
Michelob ULTRA unveiled its new Super Bowl commercial, reinforcing that while there’s an abundance of artificial in the world, your beer is one thing that shouldn’t be. With no artificial flavors or colors and only 95 calories and 2.6 carbs, Michelob ULTRA believes being human is about being fit and fun. In the: 30 commercial that will air on Super Bowl Sunday, the robots featured outperform humans at everything except one critical moment: enjoying a superior light beer.
“Reminding people who are physically active and fans of beer that balance is possible has always been our mission, and we’re excited to bring this message to the Super Bowl stage,” said Azania Andrews, vice president of Michelob ULTRA. “As the fastest growing beer brand, we believe we are the beer of this decade and the next, and we can’t wait to show America what we’re up to this year, beginning with Super Bowl.”
The commercial also marks the beginning of a new partnership with award-winning Latin music superstar, Maluma, who makes a cameo in the commercial as part of his official Super Bowl debut.
“I like to live a regret-free life and I’m always looking for ways to balance being active with having fun with my friends and family. I love that a beer like Michelob ULTRA gets me and makes it easy to see what matters,” said Maluma. “I’m so proud to represent my Latin culture during my first-ever Super Bowl commercial, and also show people why it’s so important to keep it real, from life’s experiences to the ingredients in your beer.”
Highlighting no artificial and celebrating the fit and fun lifestyle, “Robots” marks Michelob ULTRA’s fourth consecutive year in the Super Bowl as the brand continues to cement its leadership of the premium light beer category. Michelob ULTRA is a beer whose identity, since its inception in 2002, has been centered on celebrating the active, balanced lifestyle of its 21+ drinkers through its high-quality products, partnerships, and experiences.
FCB Chicago is the lead creative agency for “Robots.”
Not bad, but I was expected more from Michelob ULTRA.
