Nine tech vendor Super Bowl commercials

There’s no bigger marketing stage than the Super Bowl. And with ad prices reaching astronomical sums for a spot during the NFL championship game, companies that buy a Super Bowl ad tend to bring their most creative, innovative, star-laden efforts to the table. 

While the Seattle Seahawks were demolishing the Denver Broncos on Sunday, here are nine technology-related commercials you may have missed.

“Technology has taken us places we’ve only dreamed, empowering us to make the impossible possible. Celebrate the people using Microsoft technology to break barriers and inspire us all.”

“The 80s called … they want their store back. 80s celebrities invade a RadioShack to take back their old stuff and make room for the RadioShack of the future.”

“Gwen Dean quit her job as a machine engineer in front of more than a hundred million people watching a football game! She said so long to working for someone else and started her dream business with help from GoDaddy. She registered a domain name, got a website and turned her dream into a real business.”

Love Hurts – TurboTax

“It’s not easy watching a team that’s not your team play in the biggest game of the year. It’s like going to prom and watching that girl you love dance with some guy who’s not you. Some guy name Sean. But if do your taxes with TurboTax Federal Free Edition, before you know it, you could be holding the biggest paycheck of your year. And that day is like your own personal holiday.”
