Voting has been underway on Facebook’s official sports page, but they’re not wagering on whether the Pittsburgh Steelers or the Green Bay Packers will win Super Bowl XLV. Since Friday, people have been able to vote on commercials scheduled to air on the big day. The ad to get the most “likes” by Thursday, February 10th, will become 2011′s Facebook Replay winner.
This is the first year Facebook is trying to be such an active part of the Super Bowl craze, and for good reason: The day the Steelers and the Packers advanced to the Super Bowl, about 4.6 million people shared their thoughts and experiences with their Facebook friends. The two teams each have over a million fans on their respective pages.
Currently, all three ads for the TV hit show “Glee” are comfortably leading the vote count. A teen comedy about a group of geeks making waves in the NFL-viewer demographic? Hardly: The new season of “Glee” premieres right after the Super Bowl, and their loyal fans can hardly wait. Apparently, the die-hard football fans have yet to cast their votes.
What’s your favorite Super Bowl ad this year?
