Personal injury lawyer Jamie Casino creates most mind-blowing Super Bowl ad of all time (Video)

Jamie CasinoBefore Sunday, most people outside of Savannah, Georgia had probably never heard of Jamie Casino. By Tuesday, after Deadspin shared the video, the dude was more well known than Larry H. Parker.

Casino put together a mind-blowing 2-minute commercial that ran locally in Savannah at halftime of the Super Bowl on Sunday. The guy had more metal and special effects than a Kiss concert. It looked like we were watching a superhero comic on steroids. I’ve seen $20 million Hollywood movies that had less production that that.

Want to know how to get attention for your business? Follow this guy’s lead. Holy crap.

And Casino is not at all new to the TV commercial game. In addition to being a personal injury attorney, this guy doubles in marketing. Take a look at some of his other commercials below:

Radio Shack wins with 80s Super Bowl commercial (Video)

Everyone I know who was watching the Super Bowl seemed to enjoy the Radio Shack Super Bowl commercial. And what wasn’t there to love about it?

It was Radio Shack recognizing that their image is one of having an old, outdated store, so they mocked themselves for it. Self-deprecating humor is always good, especially when you can mix in Hulk Hogan, the California Raisins, Erik Estrada, Mary Lou Retton, Alf and other pop culture icons from the ’80s. They also targeted a good demographic — those who are in their 30s and 40s who have money to spend on technology and can relate to all the figures in the commercial.

Well done, Radio Shack, well done.

And reminder to everyone: when in doubt, go with the Hulk.

Tim Tebow makes fun of himself for lack of NFL contract in Super Bowl commercial (Video)

Tim-Tebow-T-Mobile-commercialTim Tebow may have lost his job, but he kept his sense of humor. The former Florida star has been unable to find work in the NFL since he was released by the New England Patriots over the summer. Ironically, Tebow was able to turn his lack of work into an advertising gig for the Super Bowl. The end result is actually very entertaining.

Tebow appeared on “Good Morning America” on Friday and debuted his T-Mobile commercial that will air during the Super Bowl on Sunday. The ad focuses on all the things Tebow has been able to do — ride a bull, practice stand-up comedy, throw a football on the moon — now that he is unemployed. The punch line?

“Bottom line — contracts hold you back.”

You may not know it’s a cell phone commercial until the very end, but someone came up with a great idea. Tebow remains an extremely marketable person despite the fact that his NFL career may be over.

Budweiser Super Bowl commercial with horse and puppy has captured America’s hearts (Video)

The Budweiser Clydesdale horses have become a Super Bowl staple over the years. Last year, America got chills with that commercial where the horse sprinted down the street after his caretaker three years after being separated from him. This year, the marketing geniuses have taken it a step further — they added a puppy.

In Budweiser’s Super Bowl XLVIII commercial, a horse and a puppy become friends. Need a say more? The ad has already gone viral and is sure to be a crowd pleaser come Sunday.
