For Immediate Release:

Times Square Advertisers Shine During

FOX Super Bowl Sunday Coverage

ANN ARBOR, MI, February 3, 2014– Times Square in New York City was the backdrop for the first half of Super Bowl Pre Game coverage on FOX yesterday, and taking advantage of the show's temporary home were 63 brands appearing on everything from billboards and video screens to store fronts and delivery trucks.

According to research conducted by Joyce Julius & Associates, Inc., which specializes in measuring the scope of sponsorships across all forms of media, the Super Bowl game telecast also saw seven of the Times Square advertising brands enjoy camera time. The group included Bulova, Hankook Tires, Lone Survivor, McDonald's, Merrill Lynch, Motorola and Moto X.

Joyce Julius calculates television exposure value by comparing the in-broadcast visual and verbal exposure to the estimated cost of a national commercial during the telecast and applying Joyce Julius Recognition Grading—which takes into account such factors as size and placement of the image on screen, as well as brand clutter and integration of the brand into the activity.

Each of the seven Times Square brands appeared for one or two seconds and collected exposure values ranging between $36,000 and $72,000 apiece.

The first hour of the Fox Pre Game Show was the most saturated with Times Square advertisers, as 49 brands were monitored.
