What We Watched — February 3rd, 2017

February 3, 2017

Ever wonder what your favorite COHNians are watching during their spare time? This week, we watched a handful of Super Bowl ads, a throwback Twitter contest that COHN ran in 2009, and the very best ad of the week from a Danish TV station. Enjoy!

Super Bowl ads? We’ve got ’em!

What would the week before the big game be without the ads? Check out this chart of upcoming ads — and spoiler alert, but not on this list, Spuds MacKenzie is back! Still trying to figure out if I missed him…

This Danish ad will challenge you to step outside your defining box

Here was a pretty cool and moving ad by a Danish television station. It probably seems more powerful since everything in the US is in shambles but a cool perspective nonetheless.

The Twongue Twister Project

Here’s a fun throwback. In 2009 COHN (known then as Cohn Marketing) launched a hilarious Twitter contest titled the Twitter Twongue Twister. To play, Twitter users submitted a traditional tongue twister via Twitter. Winners received Twizzlers, Twix, Twister, and Twinkies, and I know this because—during my pre-COHN years—I submitted my own Twongue Twister to the contest and won! I think I was hoping they would hire me for my hijinx, but the candy was a nice consolation. Watch this gut-busting video of Denverites trying to read tricky Twongue Twisters!
