Players In Its First Super Bowl Spot
DOLLARS & NONSENSE? Chrysler last week announced it will air a 60-second spot for its Dodge brand during the Super Bowl, and AD AGE's Rupal Parekh notes the company's decision to return to the game now, "after a five-year hiatus and on the heels of bankruptcy, set off a debate among consumers whether spending that kind of cash was kosher." Within hours of the news, Chrysler was "getting skewered in the blogosphere by angry consumers who dubbed the high-profile buy a waste of taxpayer dollars." Parekh: "What's a company who's taken a handout to do? Marketing is a part of the normal course of any business, and essential to rebuilding tattered brands. But when you're screamed at for spending money, is it worth it?" (AD AGE, 1/18 issue).
