The Do-Good Super Bowl Ads Of 2019

More than most, this year’s Super Bowl paled in excitement to many of the ads that premiered during the game.
I was looking forward to seeing the ads, hoping that brands took their cues from recent campaigns, including the much-discussed and highly-impactful Colin Kaepernick Nike ad released last year. Among the slate of star-studded and action-packed advertisements, there are a few that stood out for putting their company’s purpose front and center.

These companies used their Super Bowl spots to make a statement – about what they stand for as organizations, what issues they’re focused on solving, and where they’re focused on creating impact. And the proof is in the pudding! – many of these were came from companies in the JUST 100. Check out our favorites below:

This one is hardly your traditional “Do Good” ad, but #79 company Kellogg uses its advertising platform to make a wry statement about the future of work and technology, eschewing sentimentality for an existential warning to us all.
