The Super Bowl has seen no shortage of inspiring ads throughout the years, the kind that makes kids want to get up off their butts and go run a mile or ten, the ones that made you think you’d one day be good enough to join the NFL.
But some of us just didn’t care about sports all that much. Some of us just wanted to be the very best, like no one ever was.
“The most awesome stage”
Last year, Facebook's VP of Design thought the TNW Conference main stage was the best she'd ever been on.
That’s the kind of person that Nintendo’s Pokemon – which happens to be celebrating its 20th anniversary this year – made its Super Bowl 50 ad for.
In all seriousness, it’s a pretty slick production, showing a live-action take on young trainers from different backgrounds across the world vying to become a Pokémon master.
The message is simple: Pokémon unites us all.
Anyway, go watch it. It’s pretty awesome.
