NEW ORLEANS — Super Bowl XLVII is starting up. It's time for Blue MauMau's annual FranAd Bowl, where Blue MauMau watches the commercials from franchisors.That could be a business format franchisor, like Taco Bell. Or it could be a product distribution one, like Coca-Cola, which has franchisee bottlers that mix and distribute their products. Some are even both types, like Mercedes-Benz.

We've already published the pre-released Super Bowl ads.

Here now are the commercials that weren't pre-released and that have just aired live on television. 30 seconds of ad space at the Super Bowl costs $4 million. Blue MauMau will publish them as soon as they are available on the Internet.

Public Profile

Mr. Blue MauMau's my name and speaking on behalf of franchise buyers and owners in this patch of reef is my game. I'm a fish that sports glasses, a bow tie and a serious attitude of wanting to know the truth when it comes to anything about franchises.
