Making a phenomenal marketing move,
Miller High Life has bought 30 separate 1-second ads during this year's Super Bowl.
I think it's a great idea!
They get to remind viewers of Miller High Life 30 separate times during the game.
I am guessing these wil be among thr most memorable ads this year.

See them all here: -

Those are great!  I especially loved "Wo-jo-ho-wicz!"  Also, the bark and when he sang.

Miller delivery man is my favourite ad character. I love ads featuring him!

I like 'em.  More than that, I like the concept.  I enjoy when advertisers play with the medium.  I liked those Energizer bunny commercials when they came out in the 80's.
But these Miller spots remind me of a trick Coca-Cola (or maybe it was Pepsi, or maybe it was the actual theater) used to play in theaters decades ago.  They'd flash a split-second picture of a glass of Coke or a message to "Drink Coke" on the screen, in an apparent attempt to prey on one's "need" for a Coke from the refreshment stand.  I think that advertising technique became illegal.

Is that what they called "subliminal" ads?

Yep.  Like the S-E-X supposedly styled into Farrah Fawcett's hair in that red bathing suit poster many years ago.  And those same letters imprinted very tiny onto Playboy centerfolds in the 50's and 60's.

Pffffft. Most of those "subliminal" ads were an urban myth. And *why* would you NEED to subliminally write "SEX" in Farah's pinup?! Try doing that with a photo of Margaret Thatcher and see if it works.
I don't even recall seeing any of the one-second ads. But I have a strange craving for Miller Beer....... LOL Seriously, though- when were they??

I didn't see any.  Even worse was that I told people about them, and they were waiting to see them.
