At Cars.com, playing matchmaker is a game we love best. So we used every Super Bowl ad - not just the car commercials - as an opportunity to match people with their perfect car. When we saw a car in a spot, we’d reply on Twitter with a video and link to that car on Cars.com.
Super Bowl 'Big Match' Case Study
Our Super Bowl Matchmaker kicked things off before the big game.
When Pepsi shared their Super Bowl spot on Twitter, Cars.com spotted the Camaro and immediately connected you with a link directly to it.
When Doritos shared their Super Bowl spot on Twitter, Cars.com spotted the Ford Thunderbird and immediately connected you with a link directly to it.
When Audi shared their Super Bowl spot on Twitter, Cars.com spotted the E-Tron and immediately connected you with a link directly to it.
During HalfTime, as the Maroon 5 performed, we matched sports fans with 5 Maroon cars.
