Can’t get enough Elton John, Weego the dog, Matthew Broderick or babies in slingshots? Plan to relive all your favorite Super Bowl commercials during the annual SuperAd Bowl, sponsored by the Olin Marketing Association (OMA), at 6 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 9, in the Knight Executive Education Center.
“The SuperAd Bowl is an interactive party involving all the best parts of the Super Bowl — trivia, food, drinks and analyzing the advertising,” says Holly Hurley, first-year MBA student and OMA member.
This year’s Super Bowl ads will be screened and discussed. Several student-made commercials also will compete for prizes.
Jeff Stevens, executive creative director at Momentum Worldwide, will be the guest speaker.
Tickets are $12 in advance, $16 at the door.
To purchase tickets to the SuperAd Bowl, go to apps.olin.wustl.edu/orgevents/oma/superadbowl.
Proceeds will be donated to the MBA project Hike4Kids.
MBA student Michael McLaughlin will be hiking the entire Appalachian and Ozark trails back-to-back beginning in March to raise money for underprivileged children both in St. Louis and in Africa.
