A poster for the 1951 NFL championship game in Indianapolis is displayed on display at the Smithsonian National Museum of American History on January 19, 2021 in Washington, DC.
The ad was a major factor in the 1954 Super Bowl and, by the end of the decade, was being used by every major American sports franchise.
The ad shows a group of boys wearing baseball caps, and their names are highlighted with a picture of a smiling boy.
At the beginning of the ad, the boys are reading a newspaper article about the football season, and they ask their parents: “What are the best things to do in this time of year?”
In the ad they are shown walking around a mall, and when they see a picture on a billboard, they say: “I want to be a part of this.”
The boy then asks: “Who will do it for me?”
The caption on the billboard reads: “Super Bowl advertising.”
It was the first Super Bowl ad to be seen by more than 10 million people, and it is considered to be one of the most iconic moments in American advertising history.
After the game, the boy who was sitting next to him is seen reading a book.
When asked about the ad during a Super Bowl celebration in January, John F. Kennedy said, “Super bowl ads are all that we have.”
In 2018, the ad became the biggest television commercial ever made and the second biggest advertising campaign ever seen on television.
“It’s hard to imagine how this ad has remained in the airwaves for so long, and its impact is so profound,” David Einhorn, a curator of advertising at the American Museum of Natural History, said in a statement.
While the ad is now widely viewed and admired, some of the images featured in it have remained in circulation for decades.
One of the earliest examples of the Super Bowl advertising is an advertisement for a brand called New York Dolls in 1951.
In it, the ads slogan reads: “This ad is for the New York City Dolls.”
That ad, called the “Silly” one, was produced by advertising agency New York Film Corp. That advertisement was also seen by the New England Patriots during the 1950s and 1960s, and was used to advertise the first NFL team, the New Orleans Saints.
It is also still used by NFL teams to this day.
As part of the 2017 NFL season, teams will be wearing “Doll” jerseys and playing football with “Dolls” logos on their helmets.
On a recent Sunday, the Patriots wore the jersey and logo on their uniforms as they took on the Atlanta Falcons.
Other examples of Super Bowl commercials featured on television include an ad for a grocery store chain called “A-B-G-C-T-O-R-G,” and a commercial for a drugstore chain called D&L Foods.
But the ad for D&s first SuperBowl appearance in 1954 was seen by about 40 million people.
Even though the SuperBumbens Super Bowl has been seen by millions of people in the past few years, the iconic ad still attracts many to its iconic image.
A SuperBasket in the 2017-2018 NFL season was seen for the first time by about 10 million viewers in Los Angeles, California.
And on Feb. 1, 2021, the Superbowl ad will be seen again.
