As a matter of fact, Netflix usually doesn’t involve putting ads on big events including Super Bowl. So we didn’t surprise when we heard the news that Netflix won’t feature ads in Super Bowl 2021. And this time other streamers also will do the same along with Netflix, we heard.
This is much likely because ROI costs money to put an ad up. For example, $5.5 million will be set back to you by a 30-second spot in 2021. But however, this doesn’t mean they have never given any ads, either. So we have made a list of Netflix’s spots that are opted to secure coveted ads during the Super Bowl.
Netflix first used its licensed content to promote back in 2014. The advertisement titles of that time belong to those who have departed long before such as Mission Impossible, Thor, Transformers, Hugo, True Grit, The Office, and Sons of Anarchy.
They didn’t advertise between those years.
Stranger Things season 1 had achieved huge success after it aired. So it also brought massive eager growth for Stranger Things season 2 along with its self. In 2017, Netflix provided some first glimpses from the upcoming season to ease fans’ wonders about what they would eventually get to see back then.
Among Stranger Things, Netflix also focused on the documentary Gaga: Five Foot Two’s spot that released in September that year. Five Foot Two follows the preparations that Lady Gaga took to make the half-time performance happen in 2017.
The Cloverfield Paradox was being rumored to be in development those days until Netflix’s Super Bowl ad in 2018. Back then, Netflix dropped this trailer and revealed it was not only coming to Netflix but would be available within the next few hours. So with the exciting and unexpected nature of this ad, we can assume without a doubt that it was Netflix’s best and most exciting Super Bowl ad even if the movie got slammed by critics after.
Netflix Super Bowl ad of 2019 was probably the last the streamer ever puts out. Netflix had its first real foray into the nature documentary space in back 2019. So instead of the previous years’ opting, they chose David Atottenborough’s Our Planet to bring in front which actually had been remarkably a smaller ad than others.
There have been no official reasons given yet about why there will not be new ads on this year event of Super Bowl. We actually hoped to see even for just a little bit of somethings since Netflix has been attaching us to its self with its new excellent series and movies lately. However, we shouldn’t give up hope anyways, I suppose. Maybe Netflix will make another surprise even if it won’t be in Super Bowl but maybe somewhere else? Let’s count on that.
