Super Bowl Commercial Reboots: Super Bowls vs. Super Foods

Reboot: Super Bowls vs. Super Foods

Apple’s 1984 Super Bowl commercial re-wrote the book on product announcements. It challenged the then-institution of computers (IBM) with an exciting new way to think about PCs.

For this Super Bowl remix, I’m taking the spot in a bit of a different direction.

Imagine a theater setting similar to the original spot. Except the audience is binge eating hamburgers and chicken legs and chugging glasses of milk. A mysterious man on the screen drones repeatedly:

“Protein.”

“Protein.”

“Protein.”

Pan to the outskirts of the theater, where cows and pigs march in a line, bound together by chains.

But then, through the mist runs a huge, muscular man in bright green booty shorts. It’s world-record-breaking vegan strongman Patrik Baboumian.

He runs up to the screen, swings around a sledgehammer and throws it through the glass. An on-screen super appears:

“Go Vegan. And you’ll see why protein doesn’t have to be at all like ‘protein.’”

“Learn more at PETA.org.”
