Almost Half of Super Bowl 2012 Ads are Shazam Enabled

Sunday, February 5, 2012

Shazam is the must have app for Super Bowl 2012. Almost half of all Super Bowl 2012 commercials are Shazam-enabled.

Meaning you get a chance to win cars, get free music downloads, receive gift cards, donate to charity and enter sweepstakes for other giveaways. There are supposed over 1 million giveaways enabled by Shazam this Super Bowl.

The second-screen experience is now a big trend driven by the iPad. Shazam made the logical jump from tagging and recognizing songs played on the radio to TV programing and ads.

Shazam-enabled Super Bowl ads include:

  • Toyota – the ad will include a sweepstake to win two Camrys – one for you and one for a friend.
  • Best Buy – Best Buy's spot will feature two of Shazam's founders. Additionally, Best Buy is running a $50 gift card offer for consumers looking to buy and activate a mobile phone in 2012.

  • – when viewers use Shazam to tag the ad, will donate $1.00 to one of seven charities, up to a maximum $100,000.
  • Pepsi – the new ad that features the winner of the X FACTOR – Melanie Amaro performing Otis Redding’s song “Respect” - will invite people to unlock a free video.
  • Teleflora – viewers who tag Teleflora’s “Give” ad starring super model Adriana Lima will receive a secret offer.

Plus, a number of other commercials including GE, Relativity’s new Navy SEALs action-thriller, “Act of Valor” and Disney’s upcoming movie “John Carter" will be Shazam-enabled providing great offers and more.

Shazam also will also feature special content during the Super Bowl halftime show in partnership with Bud Light. Even during the game you can use Shazam to get more information about the Big Game.
