a short time ago, the new england patriots captured another super bowl victory. a lot of folks tuned in to see the game but millions of viewers tuned in just to see those high-priced commercials. >> this year there was a common theme, social messages including mcdonald's commercials that got viewers talking. the fast food giant announced they will accept new form of payment today. it will let customers pay for orders with what it calls lovin' which could include selfies and hugs. >> i could go in and say i want to pay with a hug. that will work? >> and you get free fries. i don't know. >> see how that works out. >> another snickers commercial. had some people looking back here. all the way to the '70s thanks to the magic of digital editing. taken back to the living room of mike and carol brady with marcia. not quite herself on a rant played by danny trejo from "sons of anarchy." the funny twist is at the end steve buscemi was at the top of the stairs playing jan. amazing what they can do with technology.
3:19 am
>> looked very real. another common theme running through the super bowl ads showed a new kind of father figure. >> gone are the days of father knows best dads and dumb dads. this year dads got real. here's abc's john donvan. >> reporter: a former footballer talking about his dad. >> what kind of excuse can you give your father when he has prosthetic legs? my dad was cleaning gutters. >> reporter: and talking about being one. >> i make sure they know how much i love them and how much i'm proud of them. >> reporter: and another. >> it is about a choice you make to love your children. >> reporter: and yet another. >> what kind of dad do you want to be? >> this kind. >> reporter: what this is, maybe a trend. because go back in time, go back well past even the first few super bowls and tv gave us a certain sort of dad. >> "make room for daddy." >> reporter: "make room for daddy" or "leave it to beaver" or "father knows best." dads who were not perfect but were perfectly intelligent.
3:20 am
>> active participation is the basis of good citizenship. >> reporter: it was almost unreal but as time went on dads got downgraded to comically dumb. homer on "the simpsons" is the symbol. so perfectly hapless he wasn't real either but these dads it is a toyota commercial. and this dove commercial with a single line of dialogue. >> da da. >> and dads who seem neither too wise or dumb but just real and good at being fathers. this son is getting in on it also. so on the night of american sports, manliness on the field, the guys in the ads are telling a story of what else goes in to being a man and maybe that is a trend. john donvan, abc news. >> you had a lot to say about dads. did you feel moved by this. >> nice touch with the dads but a lot of people -- it is one thing to be inspired and uplifted and have those themes but some themes were down right depressing in some of the commercials. if you haven't heard yet, you
3:21 am
probably have, you probably saw it but everyone had a reaction to the nationwide insurance ad and which they showed a cute kid and he is going along with a story and he said i didn't get to live all of this because i died. so essentially a dead kid ad. they are trying to bring attention to accidents. most kids die from accidents around the home, young kids. but a lot of people thought it was depressing and not the right time to have an ad like this during a celebration while people are reveling in the super bowl. >> total downer. hits you. >> almost fell off the couch. it sobers you in the midst of your party, if you will and the country was in a middle of a party. >> hours after the super bowl, what is the ad world buzzing about, this one, right. >> advertising 101. nationwide put out a statement we knew not everyone would like it but the point wasn't to sell insurance but get everyone talking. start the conversation. coming up -- perfect prediction for super bowl xlix. >> and what was the most talked about moment of the game itself? "the mix" is next.
3:22 am
stay with us. game itself? "the mix" is next. stay with us.
3:23 am
3:24 am
3:25 am
all right. time for the "the mix" now we all right. time for the "the mix" now we have super bowl edition here. madden is a popular football game, 20 years this thing has been around, at least. >> yeah. >> they do this mock game on madden. this game accurately predicted the final of the super bowl. here you are. you are seeing -- it looks life like. the seahawks and patriots played each other on this video game. the final score 28-24 patriots. the final score of the actual game was 28-24 patriots. not only that, the game predicted that tom brady would be mvp, he would have 335 yards and four touchdowns. brady's actual numbers 328 yards four touchdowns and mvp. this is as close as you can get to predicting the game. they are 9-3 over the past
3:26 am
several years of doing this. >> do they do other sports? >> i don't know. >> you and i may have to go to vegas and ask them to weigh in. >> now you are thinking, reena. now you are thinking. marshawn lynch maybe one of the best running backs in nfl history. >> a lot of people say no doubt one of the best in the game. >> how different would the game have been if someone had given him the ball. >> give him the ball, coach. #marshawn lynch is trending. >> look at these names. >> should have just gave me the ball. should've just gave me the ball. >> english is not the strong point here. >> hey, mr. lynch why were you there for the last play? i was only there so i wouldn't get fined. of course his famous line last week. i'm just here so my coach can pass the ball on the one yard line. >> these are well deserved. the guy is called beast mode. let him punch it in. >> why, why didn't they give him the ball? >> the coach has an explanation and said it had to do with formations. they were not matched up appropriately and the pass was
3:27 am
the right idea in the end. >> even i would have coached it better. >> yes, you would have. >> i know marshawn lynch. >> yes, give him the ball. >> marshawn and i go back to, i'm just here so i won't get fined. >> a week is enough to know what to do with him. >> the other one trending as well is sherman face. richard sherman is one of the biggest trash talkers in the league, defensive back for the seahawks of course but this is him watching the final play. the one in which they threw the interception. a lot of people just lovin' on the chance to jump on him. you see this? life comes at you fast. that is the face he started with and that was the one he ended with. a lot of people are making these for him. they are piling on him because he is a trash talker. >> don't talk trash. comes back to you. always does. no matter how good you are. >> that's why we don't talk trash on the show. >> never. against our principles. that's the news for this half hour.
