Best Buy and Crispin Porter & Bogusky’s 30-second spot in the first quarter of Super Bowl XLVII, their third consecutive big-game appearance together, took a different direction than the prior two outings. Following a Justin Bieber-Ozzy Osbourne combo in 2011 ("Ozzy vs. Bieber") and an homage to innovators in 2012 ("Innovators"), the retailer in 2013 presented the charming Amy Poehler playing the part of a customer peppering a sales associate with questions. It’s most charming and friendly of the trilogy. Best Buy decided to sit out the game in 2014.
