New ESPN Commercial Features Super Bowl’s Left & Right Sharks
The only Super Bowl participants that benefited from the big game as much as the New England Patriots has to be the left and right sharks from Katy Perry's halftime show.
Since that game ended, the country has been talking about the left shark's performance as much as Malcolm Butler's game-winning interception. The out-of-sync dancer has spawned memes, merchandise, and now an ESPN commercial.
The network's 'This is Sportscenter' ad campaign takes a mocking look at the inner-workings of the Worldwide Leader, but the television spots are usually a look at anchors, mascots, or athletes. This might mark the first time ESPN has ever produced one of its comical commercials so quickly based on a specific moment.
But kudos on the quick turnaround. The company definitely took advantage of two of the biggest takeaways from this winter: the left shark and the endless northeastern snow.
