Despite the fact that most of the tv spots and other movie-related fare (step forward off a cliff Honda’s Ferris Bueller nonsense) were released online in the days leading up to the Super Bowl the most expensive minutes of airtime certainly gave us all something to talk about last night.
In amidst the confused tweets about the rules of American Football there was blockbuster talk and plenty of it. So much so that cunning statsters Way to Blue (our absolute favourite company named after a Nick Drake song) have compiled this infographic which sets out the twitterstorm created by each of the night’s biggest film ads.
Given the absence of a Nolan Batman spot, or an example of the Amazingness of Spider-Man there’s no surprise that Marvel’s The Avengers caused the assembled geekery to run riot over Twitter with their Os and their Ms and a few Gs along the way.
In short Marvel got it right. Take a look below and see who all the fuzz was about last night and spare a thought for poor John Carter, perhaps he does need that ‘of Mars’ after all.
Here’s the infographic in all its glory, click it. Go on.
