Total spending on Super Bowl ads has skyrocketed over the years, growing 5 times larger than it was 23 years ago. In addition to the networks, the entertainment and pop culture partners are also benefiting from the high price tag for 30 seconds of airtime. Ryan Schinman, Co-Founder & CEO of Mayflower Entertainment, was with us to share how he connects brands with athletes, celebrities, and influencers.

Schinman is responsible for orchestrating some of the largest endorsement deals ever made between Madison Avenue and Hollywood. He is credited for creating such partnerships as: Matthew McConaughey and Scarlett Johansson with Dolce and Gabbana, Diddy and Usher with Mercedes, and Oprah and DJ Khaled with Weight Watchers. Schinman said the Super Bowl ad that he was involved in that he is most proud of was the Justin Timberlake commercial with Pepsi. He said it made Pepsi "beyond relevant" in the pop culture world.

Super Bowl ads cost around $5 million. Schinman said there's no exact science for measuring the success of a marketing campaign because there are too many variables. Put simply, if brands can improve their visibility and sell more products, it's worth the investment, he added.
