2003 Ads [VIDEO]
The 2003 Super Bowl commercials were some of the most memorable in recent years and set the bar quite high for advertising during a sporting event. Several companies chose to be creative and memorable when creating ads for their brands. From the groundbreaking Apple Mac vs. PC ads to the zany antics of The Simpsons, there was something for everyone.
One commercial that sticks out in most people’s heads is Reebok’s “Terry Tate: Office Linebacker” spot. Terry Tate was portrayed Lester Speight, an American football linebacker who “Takes ’em on the ride on the pain train” to those in the office who are not obeying office rules. The advertisement showed him patrolling an office and laying down the law NFL style while wearing a signature jersey number 56. Since its debut in 2003, this ad has spawned several sequels including “Office Linebacker II,” released during Super Bowl XLIV in 2010 as well as other related videos that can still be found online today and have made it into pop culture lingo even today — all thanks to its initial showing at SuperBowl XXXVII’s broadcast back in 2003!
Here are some of the best ads from that year’s big game:
- Reebok – “Terry Tate – Office Linebacker”
- Budweiser – “Instant Replay”
- FedEx – “Castaway”
- Budweiser – “Great Listener”
