Forget the Superbowl. Olympic Ads Take the Gold!

While it’s easy to overlook in the advertising world since the Olympics is only every 4 years, every time I see the TV ads during the Olympics, I’m overcome with emotion. American Pride. Determination. Passion. And Grit.

There is something about the way athletes commit that is so moving, and I love the way American brands rally around the red, white and blue. It’s a breath of fresh air, especially with so much unrest in our country at the moment.

Here’s a few that are #winning on my list. You’ll quickly see I like the tear jerkers! Get your tissues!
