2022 NCAA Championship and Superbowl Advertisements


Recommended Posts

Hello Coaches,

 

This season we are going to try something different. We are going to create a "broadcast" like you would hear on the radio for the NCAA Championship Game and the NFL's Superbowl. And we want *you* to make the ads for it!

 

Specifically, these will be what are called "Live Read" ads. This means the announcer/play-by-play guy will read it in between things like possessions, scores, etc. Here is an example of a Live Read ad that is used to set up a weather report:

 

So what we need you to do is write up a quick ad that we can slot in a different times during the game. Here is a template not too dissimilar from what a real ad writeup would start with:

  • What: What are you trying to sell/get people to do?
  • Who: Who are you trying to get to buy/go do the thing?
  • Where: Is there a specific location people need to go (physically or virtually) to get/do it?
  • When: Is there a specific time people need to go to get/do it?
  • Why: Why would anyone care about this product/thing/event?
  • How (sort of covered already): How does one get/do the thing you want them to do?

Some other things to think about:

  • Company Names
  • Brand Names
  • Event Names
  • Taglines ("I'm loving it" [McDonald's], "Just Do It" [Nike], "Meow Mix, so good cats ask for it by name", [Meow Mix])
  • Real World Examples
  • Branding of things like Red Zones, Field Goal Attempts, Touchdowns, etc. ("Team X has now entered the 'Sherman Williams Red Zone'", or "Team X is lining up for a 'Bank of America Field Goal Attempt'")

Do you need to write an entire script? No, however, if you do it will be greatly appreciated!

 

Unfortunately, we will probably have to take all of the final ads for the NCAA Championship game by the end of the day Thursday, November 17th, 2022. This is so we have enough time to record the game. Superbowl ads will be taken all the way through Wednesday, November 30th, 2022.

 

So, what all do we need from you to put an ad in the big games?

  • List out the Product/Event/Whatever you are advertising.
  • List out things like company name, tag lines, etc.
  • List out as many of the "W" questions and answers as makes sense for your ad
  • (OPTIONAL) A quick script that you think would sound good on the radio.

I will comment with a good example. If you make your post look like it, it will be enough for us to work with. Be creative! Have fun!

 

Final disclosure: it is possible that not all of these will be used. However, we will try our best to squeeze them in.
