McDonalds - King of Super bowl
McDonald’s social media campaign managed to be the most engaging advertiser creating 475,268 impressions. In their super bowl commercial, McDonalds announced that between 2nd -14th February, they will accept ‘lovin’ as a form of payment. This was carried with the sole reason to grab their audience’s attention using innovative and unique techniques.
Doritos - Crash the Super Bowl
Snickers - #EatASnickers
After McDonalds, Snickers not only engendered a buzz on Twitter during Super Bowl but also prompted chuckles. The DVC was not only surprising but also wistful.
Snickers released the teaser of their DVC and said that they would release the complete ad-film only if there were enough retweets.

Bud light #UpForWhatever
#UpForWhatever has now become a common phrase in America, thanks to Bud light. It manages to ask its audience the question, "If I give you this Bud light - Are you up for whatever happens next?"
@budlight My favorite commercial for the night. So much old school fun
