If your friends and family started yelling at each other to find the remote during Super Bowl LVII in 2023, you weren’t alone. Tubi’s Super Bowl commercial tricked us all and won the ad war this year, as people all over the internet can’t stop talking about it.
So what happened? For about 10 seconds, fans everywhere had a mini panic attack thinking they were about to miss the next commercial or a big play because someone sat on the remote. Smart TVs randomly started changing channels, opening apps, and selecting a movie to watch instead.
The popular free streaming service Tubi created the commercial, which was epic.
“Wait, wait, wait. Who’s sitting on the remote?” My version of that had a few expletives, which I won’t repeat here, but you get the point.
An estimated 100+ million fans watched Super Bowl LVII in 2023. And while the halftime show is always a popular subject, tons of people tune in for the commercials. Honestly, the commercials weren’t that great this year, but Tubi stole the show.
For those unaware, Tubi is a 100% free (and legal) TV show and movie streaming app. The service offers over 40,000 movies and shows, available anytime on-demand, for free. However, the app has ads during content. It’s known as “FAST,” which stands for free ad-supported streaming TV.
And while there are several FAST apps on the market for those trying to enjoy movies and TV for free, everyone is talking about Tubi today. That’s why it won the Super Bowl ad wars.
