ECP creates Super Bowl LVI Spot for Gerald R. Ford International Airport

Midwest advertising agency Extra Credit Projects (ECP), found themselves among big names like Pepsi, Doritos, and Budweiser as they debuted a commercial during Super Bowl LVI on Sunday, February 13 for client Gerald R. Ford International Airport.

With creative from ECP and media from Extra Credit Media, this 30-second ad was shown in prime time during Sunday’s big game, reaching nearly 1 million viewers in the West Michigan region.

“It’s exciting to be a part of the big game and connect with such a broad audience in the region,” said Rob Jackson, Principal at Extra Credit Projects. “The Ford Airport is such a huge economic driver in the region, and with their continued growth and plans for additional development, the scale of the Super Bowl felt right for their brand.”

The Gerald R. Ford International Airport has an undeniable connection with football as former President Gerald R. Ford played for the Michigan Wolverines and led the team to two undefeated seasons nearly nine decades ago. In memory of the former president, and to commemorate the occasion, ECP also created custom gift boxes which held specially designed football jerseys that featured President Gerald R. Ford’s retired number 48 which will be gifted to a number of airport partners.
