The Super Bowl isn’t just the biggest event of football season — it’s the biggest event for advertising as well. Instead of solely relying on a 30-second spot during the big game, more and more brands are incorporating social campaigns into their Super Bowl advertising strategies.
Last year State Farm went all-in on social media advertising, opting to run a TikTok campaign instead of making a Super Bowl commercial. The brand posted a video from the @jakefromstatefarm account encouraging TikTok users to duet the video showing off their dance skills for a chance to star in a State Farm video.
Ahead of Super Bowl LVII on February 12, we’ve seen brands roll out early ads and teasers on social media to build anticipation and engagement. Here are a few we’ve seen so far:
The Love Triangle by Doritos
On January 12, Doritos released a video called “The Love Triangle” starring Jack Harlow. The clip follows the teaser image the brand shared on social media just three days before.
Doritos also took a page out of State Farm’s playbook with the #DoritosTriangleTryout TikTok challenge, inviting fans to share dance videos for a chance to star in the company’s final Super Bowl ad.
