From what I’ve read, companies pay about $3 million for a 30-second commercial on the Super Bowl. I understand that they typically hire ad agencies to come up with the ideas for, and produce, the commercial itself. I believe that those ad agencies get paid a commission that is a percentage of the cost of the placement (e.g., 15% of $3,000,000 = $450,000) plus the expenses of shooting the commercial.
So the concepts for these commercials are developed by the world’s brightest and most seasoned advertising professionals.
Except in one case this year.
Wow! Way to go Clay Broussard! I hope you’re in supply chain because you love it, because you’d probably make a lot more money if you specialized in Super Bowl advertising!
