It seems to be all set for the event of the year in the US:
the SuperBowl 50.
Many of you have already heard mention in American films but for those who have never heard of it I’ll explain in a concise what it is :
The Super Bowl is the final of the National Football League championship league US professional football (it’s pretty much a worldwide because the teams that compete are the strongest in the world ). In a country where football is like for us as soccer, the final is the most watched event of the year ( about 110 million viewers ).
The event that will paralyze the United States of America will be hold in Santa Clara (California), in the Levi`s Stadium on Sunday, 02/07/2016.
I admit to not being a big fan of the event and even some particular team but every year I try to watch at least the first hour to get an idea of the atmosphere, the kind of American festivities, with the national anthem, flags, great guests and above all for the new commercials of the biggest American brands sent as preview during the numerous breaks of the event!
Appreciated by people like me who loves the American humor!
Right commercials! Advertising during the event is very expensive ( you spend 4 million to $ 8 million for 30 seconds and 60 seconds) and much commented upon ( are also drawn up various charts). In fact, it seems, according to Forbes, that 50 % of people watch the Super Bowl just for the publicity. These commercials almost always define a trend.
On youtube you can even find the rankings of the best advertisings over the years!Like this one2015
My favorite is always the one of the chips Doritos!
Budweiser always manages to get into our hearts by using beautiful labrador puppies as this one!
Let us understand in a simple way some details that may come useful during a simple small talk!
Who will be the teams that will compete ?
Superbowl is n to just sport.
As tradition, the annual event is not only football, but provides a highly anticipated halftime show that every year is much followed by viewers. This year the honor of performing between the second and third quarter ( in the middle game of course) it’s up to the British band Coldplay. On stage to assist them there will be also Bruno Mars and Beyonce, protagonists in the past of this important show.
