Google’s now famous Super Bowl ad “Parisian Love” was quite a surprise. Google hardly needs to buy any advertising to increase its brand awareness, but since a one minute Super Bowl ad cost the equivalent of a cup of coffee to you and me, they did it anyway.

They also aced the intense competition for best Super Bowl ad, another surprise.  In fact, the ad was so clever that it has sparked a spin off contest: Best Parody of Google’s Super Bowl ad.  Watch the original, and then check out the first, second, and third place winners.
