This year’s Super Bowl ads featured an overarching theme that was more focused on emotion-driven storytelling than in previous years. When you’re paying $5 million for a thirty-second spot, you expect results. And emotional appeals deliver. From Budweiser’s controversial “Born The Hard Way” ad – the story of the founder of the brewery’s journey to America to pursue his dreams – to 84 Lumber’s “The Journey Begins,” emotional messages proved to spark social media interest and inspire traditional media coverage.
Heartfelt spots that emphasize substance over style speak to why we care in the first place. A story with an emotional core resonates more strongly with consumers, and in an oversaturated media environment any edge you can get is an important one.
