Ah… a mother’s work is never done. For the second year in a row, Time Warner Cable will be promoting itself during the Super Bowl game and we have their ad for you to see! The company partnered with AMC to produce this 30 second spot which features not only the show ‘The Walking Dead’ but also Norman Reedus who plays Daryl Dixon on the series.
The commercial starts with a suburban mom doing housework washing a blood and gut ridden machete at the sink while talking on the phone about the day’s schedule. She then heads to her daughter’s room (who has “Don’t Open Dead Inside” spray painted on her door) where she is streaming ‘The Walking Dead’ on her computer and reprimands her for tormenting the zombie she has chained in her room. The mom then heads to the hallway mopping up the mess made by the Bicycle Zombie. Then on to the family room as an arrow is shot through the head of a passing zombie where it lands into the wall with blood splatter. She looks disapprovingly and mentions that the walls were just painted. Daryl is contrite and although he looks absolutely adorable doing so, the mom tells him and her husband to clean up the mess of zombie bodies in the room.
The ad is humorous and a great nod to the series. This Time Warner spot is a great example why Super Bowl is not only for watching the big game but also for the commercials.
