Superb Owl Spots

SOO

Just in case anyone is working on a Superb Owl Spot this year, it sort of is on my bucket list to work on one of those, in whatever capacity, so if you have spill over things, whatever it is.

Think of me :heart_eyes:

Yea i can only guess the mess that I am about to be involved in but i kinda still want to do it at least once.

So let me get this straight. You live in one of the most amazing countries in the world, in one of the most amazing cities in the world, and you want to work 100 hour weeks with no overtime and make thousands of 120 second films, 60 second broadcasts, :30 tv ads, 15 cut downs, 6 sec teasers, in all shapes and sizes, for an overly ambitious and underly staffed and scheduled and budgeted project, for an American football game that is far too long and far too boring?

Do you know those people that like do triathlons?? I dont get it either - I just want to be able to say “been there done that” :smiley: Also dont they have lots of moneys to throw around for Superb Owl?

Kind of like that clown that rode his bike from Chicago to New York. What’s up with that?

Sounds like a huge tool.

Desperation breeds creativity

I used to hold it as a point of pride that I was on non-Superbowl jobs when I was at Mill LA. The whole office would be working insane hours and I would walk out at 6pm every night because I was on something more low key.

Even the one Superbowl ad I did lead delivered in late November.

I do miss the catered lunches every day, espically food truck day, and especially In N Out and the Kogi truck days.

Don’t let these jaded monsters dampen your enthusiasm Finn, there is something cool about the camaraderie and shared sense of purpose that comes with a SB spot. And when you’re at a party and your commercial comes on and you get to point at the TV and tell everyone to shut up, frankly there are no greater joys available in advertising.

Do I miss working on them? No I do not. But I get it. I hope you get to cross this off your list.
