Sci-Fi and Fantasy Super Bowl Commercials

Sci-Fi and Fantasy Super Bowl Commercials February 5, 2012

It is really striking just how many of the Super Bowl commercials this year have had a sci-fi focus – and one fits the category of fantasy, featuring vampires. Which was your favorite? The Star Wars one has a pretty good twist, I thought, but the Chevy post-2012-apocalypse is my favorite of the ones I have seen.

But perhaps more importantly, is this definitive proof that geekdom is now cool – and profitable?
