In addition to enabling all ads during the game for replay and sharing, the first ad of the game is for Bud Light’s Cool Twist aluminium bottles and will feature a world premiere release with 500,000 free downloads of Afrojack’s new song, “Ten Feet Tall” for fans 21 years of age and older.* The new track will not be available for purchase until midnight, so fans of the artist can be the first to get it for free by Shazaming the Bud Light commercial.
British luxury automaker, Jaguar is also offering a special Shazam-enabled Super Bowl experience. When people Shazam Jaguar’s ‘Rendezvous’ ad, featuring the all-new F-TYPE Coupe, they are taken to an interactive British Villains concept that features recent models, behind-the-scenes videos and more!
