Advertisement Slots For Super Bowl Sell Out

Super Bowl 2012

Sad news around the Thoughts of a Jeanius office today, our marketing scheme has been foiled. All the advertisement slots for the upcoming Super Bowl are sold out. The slots were sold out by Thanksgiving, says Seth Winter, senior vice president of sales and marketing at NBC’s sports group.

The 30-second slots went for a record $3.5 million. Winter also said that there will be fewer 30 second commercials and more 60 second spots.

Car commercials figure to be popular in 2012 with Volkswagen, Chevy, Cadillac, Toyota, Kia, and Hyundai all running commercials.

Troy Aikman and Deion Sanders will be featured in a Bridgestone commercial. returns in a much-needed way and will of course feature Danica Patrick, Jillian Michaels, and will debut the pop-music group the Pussycat Dolls.

In addition to those above Anheuser-Busch, Doritos, Coca Cola, Best Buy, CareerBuilder,, Century 21, and Dannon Yogurt have all been confirmed to run at least one spot.

Here’s one of my favorites from last year’s Super Bowl:
