A Coffee Called ‘Death Wish’ Wins Free Super Bowl 50 Ad
A 30 second ad in Super Bowl 50 will cost a record breaking $5 million dollars this year, but one lucky small business has earned a coveted spot in the broadcast for free!
15,000 small businesses in the country were competing in Intuit QuickBooks Small Business Big Game contest which awards the winner with an all-expenses paid ad to air during Super Bowl, and Death Wish Coffee Company in New York whose coffee contains double the caffeine of a regular cup, was just announced as this year's winner.
Mike Brown, owner of Death Wish Coffee Company in Round Lake, New York told CNNMoney that winning the competition was "beyond our wildest dreams", and that he and his employees are super excited to be on the same stage as the brands they have always admired.
The company posted this thank you on their Facebook page this morning...
The owner also says that the actual ad is more like a movie trailer, and that his company has already revamped their website, hired more employees, and are preparing for an influx in business after the ad airs during the big game.
