Coors Light gets locked out of the Super Bowl every year due to Anheuser-Busch's exclusive contract with the NFL.  So how did we get noticed when we legally couldn't advertise during the biggest game of the year? We ran our Super Bowl ad in the one place where there are no rules. Your dreams.

Partnering with Harvard dream psychologist Dr. Deirdre Barrett, we developed  a first-of-its kind video and audio stimulus designed to induce a dream about Coors – starring any celebrity you want, and packed with various other Super Bowl tropes. We received over 1.4 billion earned media impressions, upped social engagement by 3,000% and invented a new advertising medium along the way.
