Miller’s 1-Second Spots: Viewers Blinked, Missed Them

Why So Few Saw Miller’s High Life on NBC
Millions of Super Bowl viewers who read about Miller High Life‘s one-second Super Bowl ads but didn’t see them during the game probably assumed they simply missed them because they were grabbing a beer in the bathroom — or blinking. But the real reason many viewers — including those in major markets such as Chicago, Los Angeles and New York — missed the fleeting image of Miller spokesman Windell Middlebrooks quickly shouting “High Life” is because NBC, which aired the game Feb. 1, issued a directive to its owned-and-operated station affiliates not to run the local spots from the value-oriented beer brand.
