March Madness in Advertising!

Every year as winter draws to a close and spring (slowly) starts to show its face again, a unique phenomenon sweeps the country. A phenomenon that has even the least sports savvy Americans researching player stats, cheering on teams they may have never even heard of before, and filling out perhaps dozens of brackets.

That phenomenon is known as the NCAA's March Madness tournament. 

These few weeks fill up stadiums and sports bars with fans clambering to see how their picks will fair in the great tournament. Even I, typically a passive sports fan at best, have found myself yelling at screens and biting my nails over close games and unpredictable upsets. (Thanks a lot, Duke.)

Throughout the years large-scale events have become central hubs attracting the greatest marketers to put out their top work, no matter the amount of time or money it takes to produce.

And with the The Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics now underway, this year is no exception.

There have been many unique ads out there trying to attach a brand name to the Sochi Olympics and stand out amongst the rest.
