Oreo, Buffalo Wild Wings and others capitalize on Super Bowl power outage

The power outage at this year's Super Bowl had the world buzzing. Viewers shared their reactions and jokes through social media, turning the outage into a rather fun sideshow. Several companies – Oreo, Walgreens, Audi and Buffalo Wild Wings – made the most of the power outage, cashing in on the rather odd event to do a bit of marketing. 

Power outage? Don't worry. You can still dunk your Oreos in the dark. 

The power outage seemed like something straight out of a Buffalo Wild Wings commercial. In fact…

Don't be surprised if BWW turns the very real power outage into a commercial in the near future. 

Walgreens had a couple comments…


Finally, Audi had something to say about the Mercedes-Benz Superdome losing power.
