Coca Cola Polar Bears Super Bowl Commercial 2012: 'Frustration' Ad Depicts Patriots And Giants Fans

Posted: Updated:

The Super Bowl wouldn't be complete without Coca Cola's iconic polar bear ad.

'Frustration', the final ad to air during the second half of the big game, featured a pair of polar bear pals sitting on the couch in their ice cave rooting for opposite teams.

At this point in the game, the bear supporting the New England Patriots with his blue scarf remains content with the score, the other one, a New York Giants fan in a red scarf, is stressed over the prospect of losing the precious NFL title. To calm him down, his buddy hands him a refreshing Coca-Cola along with a straw.

One can only presume that the roles in this cave were reversed after Giants running back Ahmad Bradshaw fell into the end zone for the game-winning touchdown with about 1 minute remaining in the fourth quarter.

Fans took to Twitter with some interesting reactions to the polar bear Coke ad.

For years, viewers have tuned into the NFL's Super Bowl as much to see what the advertisers roll out as how the two teams vying for the sport's top prize perform. This year is no different. Each time that NBC cuts away from Super Bowl XLVI between the New York Giants and New England Patriots a hush will come over most Super Bowl parties as everyone -- and not just the diehard sports fans with a rooting (or betting) interest -- focuses entirely on the ads.

While iconic Super Bowl commercials like Apple's '1984' and Coke's ad starring Mean Joe Greene will be remembered so many more are soon forgotten or, even worse, ridiculed as super fails.
