A lot has happened over the last 28 days that may have distracted you from February's status as Black History Month. So on this, the last day of the annual celebration, we're sharing some Black History Month-themed TV ads released by big brands; all of them aired nationally, according to iSpot.tv, the real-time TV ad measurement company.
First, an ad from "Coca-Cola" titled "History Moves Forward" that juxtaposes the evolution of the iconic Coke bottle with landmark moments in Black history. Coke has been running different version of this ad for years, including in the 2007 Super Bowl. According to iSpot, the ad aired 115 times in February, generating more than 56 million TV ad impressions across networks including NBC, USA Network and Fox Sports 1, with the biggest-budget placements coming during telecasts of the 2018 Winter Olympics.
