Want To Make A Great Super Bowl Commercial… Call George Strait

George Strait country music

One day away…

We’ve seen a number of great Super Bowl commercials over the years, with brands shelling out millions and millions of dollars for just 30 seconds of airtime.

Is it worth it? I don’t know… for some companies (with good marketing teams) yeah, but for others, it’s like… what the hell are you doing?

This year, we’ve already seen Super Bowl spots from Willie Nelson and Bic, a reunion of Walt and Jesse from Breaking Bad, Budweiser, and more.

But what I’m really hoping for is another one from the great George Strait.

During last year’s Super Bowl matchup between the Cincinnati Bengals and the Los Angeles Rams, King George appeared in what I assume was a local commercial in the Texas market, but by golly, if you want to win the Super Bowl ad game, call in the King.

Ol’ King George Strait was featured in a H-E-B (a Texas-based grocery store) ad, and I’d love to see him make a comeback again this year during the Super Bowl.

I mean, can anybody compete with George Strait?

The answer is no…

Shania Twain’s 2003 Super Bowl Halftime Show Performance

The year was 2003.

The Oakland Raiders were set to take on their former head coach Jon Gruden and the stout defense of his Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Super Bowl XXXVII.

The game was a blow out, with the Bucs jumping out to a 20-3 lead by halftime and never looking back.

And speaking of halftime, 2003 was the last time a country music act got to perform the show… we’re talking about the great Shania Twain.

Singing her 1999 hit single “Man! I Feel Like A Woman” and 2003’s “Up,” which was released shortly before the Super Bowl, Shania eventually hopped up on a lift and flew out over the audience to end her performance. You know, some real Garth Brooks kind of shit.

Shortly thereafter, No Doubt and Sting took the stage to bring the Super Bowl halftime show to its conclusion.
