NBC plans to host a post-game Hangout on Google+ to discuss the best and worst commercials of this year’s Super Bowl, using a feature that allows users to watch YouTube videos together. This follows on the heels of President Obama’s first digital chat also using Hangout earlier this week. The partnership between Google and NBC will allow for cross-promoting of the big game on YouTube for the entire weekend leading up to it, while NBC promotes YouTube’s Ad Blitz—where users can vote for their favorite Super Bowl ads. Sports reporter Darren Rovell has been tapped to host the event, and he will reveal the winning ad of Ad Blitz on his show in the coming weeks.
“The day after the Super Bowl is when people head back to their office water coolers to discuss what they loved and what they didn’t,” said Rovell. “Our conversation is about taking all those water coolers conversations and bringing it to a national, digital stage.” Would you join in, or do you think it’s just another forced attempt to make Google+ relevant? Either way you might consider tuning in on Monday. The multi-million-dollar ads will likely still be fresh on your mind so why not see what everyone else has to say about them too?
