Where to Watch the ads and Vote
We are using Hulu’s AdZone to show ads after they air, there’s a collection of the past 3 years to watch at right now. This page will update automagically with the new ads as they air. So no need to refresh the page.
USA TODAY’s Ad Meter tracks the second-by-second responses of a panel of viewers to ads during the Super Bowl and ranks them from best to worst. Click on an ad in the results below to watch the panel’s responses. Rate the ads yourself using the online rating button on the player toolbar. Scroll down the page to learn more about how Ad Meter works.
Hulu is also covering the Super Bowl ads madness with its Ad Zone, which will post high-quality versions of the ads when they air. And just like YouTube and Facebook, there will be voting. (thumbs up and down)
YouTube is running its fourth annual YouTube Ad Blitz contest. Find the commercials share them with your friends. Watch the commercials the minute they air on Feb 6th. When the game ends, vote for your favorite 2011 commercial until Feb 14. The winning ad will receive ultimate video glory with YouTube homepage recognition on Feb 19.
For the first time YouTube will offer remarketing. That means that if you watch an ad on YouTube, it might follow you and appear again on another Web site you visit in Google’s display ad network.
Facebook will have a contest called Facebook Replay, which will show the Super Bowl ads on its Sports on Facebook page. It will tally how many “Likes” each commercial gets to determine the winner.

Brand Bowl will gauge public reaction to the brands advertising during the Super Bowl. By monitoring Twitter, it will measure people’s opinions and rank the brands accordingly. The brand with the top “Brand Bowl score” on Sunday night will be the winner of Brand Bowl 2011. A narrow five-hour sliding window is used during which time we measure the Twitter stream. This prevents any pre-game (or post-game) hype from influencing the results. The final Brand Bowl rankings will be calculated right after the game.
Mullen, Radian6 and The Boston Globe partnered to put on Brand Bowl 2011.
