Shazam – I heard that one-quarter to one-third of ads would use them, but I looked long and hard at the ads and only saw the Shazam logo a handful of times. And sometimes it wasn’t even on there for the whole :30 spot. Did anyone else have better luck? The half time show Shazam was good. I got a free song OMFG (I think that’s the name), but I haven’t had a chance to download it yet.
Chevy Game Time – No car. I did get 25% off of Papa Johns, but the coupon is only good until this Sunday and Bryan made a massive lasagna that we’ve been working on all week, so it will go to waste. I also go 25% off of NFL.com, but I have no desire to get anything.
Adbowl – I liked being able to rate the commercials as we saw them and I got some of my friends into the game as well (we started all unanimously voting on my iPad). It was a little hard to juggle though and sometimes the company’s wrong ad was being displayed. But it was overall fun.
GetGlue – Yawn. I checked in and couldn’t find out what else to do with it. Did anyone find that activity engaging during the show? Anyone care to share? As soon as I signed up, I had about 20 of my friends start following me, but I don’t know if that’s an automatic feature or that many people are that active with it. You know who you are.
I was so busy doing the Chevy Game Time app trivia during the game and actually watching the game itself, that I didn’t have time to visit with the Polar Bears. Did anyone get to read their live remarks during the game? I have to admit, they creep me out a little bit as they reach way across the uncanny valley for polar bears.
Overall, I like how it brought a new layer to the game. Unfortunately, I was not the best audience member to take advantage of all of this.
On a positive note for the Superbowl, the NFL’s fantasy football ads got more than 1.7 million text entries to “Live Like A Millionaire.” I was using the iPad though with my phone tucked away in my purse, so I didn’t get to participate. Did anyone else? Are you still getting texts from them or are they leaving you alone?
Curious minds want to know! Don’t feel bashful commenting!

The time is fast approaching (or already here) when the ads overshadow the game. Fortunately for the NFL the game was pretty good this year.
