BALTIMORE – February 6, 2018 – Warschawski, a full-service advertising, marketing, digital, public relations, branding, web design, creative and crisis communications agency, released its list of the 2018 Super Bowl advertising top winners and losers. Compiled by CEO, David Warschawski, this much anticipated annual ranking lists the best and worst ads and provides the foundation for David to provide media commentary on such topics as ad effectiveness, new trends, and the return on investment for Super Bowl ads.

David is a respected advertising industry expert, published author, and contributor to numerous national and international media outlets ranging from CNBC to National Public Radio (NPR), from PBS to Germany’s highly regarded Der Spiegel to New Zealand’s biggest radio station. His annual Super Bowl report receives coverage from regional media, marketing communications media and national and international media outlets.   

Warschawski employs a proprietary approach in creating the Warschawski Top Ten Winners and Losers List of Super Bowl Advertising – see the full list below.  Our W-Best (The Warschawski BEST) Model allows us to measure the success of any advertisement or marketing piece, and it is how Warschawski once again ranked this year’s Super Bowl ads.
