Super Bowl Picks and Pans from VMLY&R Executive Producer Amy Turner

Which Super Bowl spots did you love? Which did you not love? Let’s hear what the pros had to say! We were thrilled to have VMLY&R Executive Producer Amy Turner stop by Screen after the game to present her picks…

SCREEN: What was your favorite spot of the night?

AMY: It is hard to pick just one!

Anheuser-Busch – Made me smile, a lot!

NFL – Run with It, was very fun.

Dunkin’ I love a culturally relevant moment, self-deprecation and a simple catchy line of copy. 

Here is that Ben Affleck spot and Ben chatting about the whole experience…

SCREEN: What was your least favorite spot of the night or a spot you felt could have been more successful?

AMY: Ignoring all the trailers, I did not understand the M&Ms ad. Secondly, for all the reasons I thought Dunkin’ was great, the spot for e.l.f. fell flat on execution.  All said and done, these ads are hard to make, and I am not a Monday morning quarterback. 

Here is that Jennifer Coolidge spot for e.l.f…

SCREEN: What would you like to see more or less of in terms of advertising in next year’s Super Bowl?

AMY: More brands, less trailers! I loved that this year’s ads mostly leaned into the giggles and not the tears. Keep it coming for next year.

SCREEN: Any final words here, Amy?

AMY: Congratulations to everyone involved in these ads!  I have so much respect for the mountain of work and sleepless nights it takes to get one of these on air. Take a nap tomorrow.
