You'll need 3-D glasses for Super Bowl XLIII

Intel-3d-glasses copy

Exciting news in the perennially up-and-coming field of 3-D technology: Four marketers are teaming up to air two commercials in super-fabulous 3-D as part of a special "event" during this year's Super Bowl telecast on Feb. 1. The ads, which will run at the end of the second quarter (a big bathroom-break moment, unfortunately), will be a 3-D trailer for DreamWorks Animation's upcoming 3-D feature film, Monsters vs. Aliens, and a 60-second spot in 3-D for PepsiCo's SoBe Lifewater. The other two marketers involved are Intel, which has made 125 million pairs of 3-D glasses for the occasion (to be made available at various retail locations), and NBC, this year's Super Bowl broadcaster, which will also air a 3-D episode of Chuck the following day (to be promoted under the slogan "Don't Chuck your glasses"). The whole thing is ludicrous enough to get lots of attention, but don't expect the Lifewater ad to knock your socks off. It will feature "the SoBe lizards and stars from DreamWorks' Monsters vs. Aliens [dancing] alongside current NFL stars."
