When it comes to the “big game”, we all love to watch – but none more than our Creative Director, Julia Henry, who has music supervised tons of sports programming from her days at Fox Sports, and yes that includes a Super Bowl (seriously). So when it comes down to it, she is watching and listening to every single cue that occurs during the broadcast – from stadium music (no that doesn’t end up on the cue sheets but it’s interesting to hear what’s being used), to in-game music, to the ads and promos.
So as homage to the big game, hear our cue “Pirates” in the backend of the 3D Monsters vs Aliens trailer, from 1:09 – 1:31. Composed by Ryan Amon (BMI), go to our Contact page for licensing.
About this spot:
This spot was the first ever 3D trailer to air on TV, during Super Bowl XLIII!
Super Bowl XLIII (aka Super Bowl 43) Commercial. Monsters vs. Aliens is a 3D movie that held a 90-second spot during the Super Bowl. At an estimated 3 million U.S. dollars per 30 seconds, Monster vs. Aliens 3D movie trailer could be the most expensive Super Bowl commercial to date (circa 2009).
The video aired on February 1, 2009 on NBC at the end of the second quarter. You need a pair of 3D glasses to view the original commercial that aired for the full effect.
