Play the Helpful Honda Bowl with the Super Bowl Commercials. Giving Back Was Never So Easy!

What is your favorite part of the SuperBowl? If you were to ask me that question, I would either say the great cocktails (providing that was on the SuperBowl menu) or it would be the commercials! It’s interesting how much attention those commercials get. This year you will see one less brand participating in the commercial blitz BUT that doesn’t mean you can’t watch the commercials. Actually this brand wants you to watch those commercials – and the more you watch, it could earn The Boys and Girls Clubs of Southern California  some serious donations.

What am I talking about? I am talking about the Helpful Honda Dealers and the Helpful Guys *(and Girls) in Blue!! There is a fabulous promotion that Honda has come up with and it’s so smart, so fun and also gives back in the process that even your kids can play.

Following last year’s helpful act of providing complimentary Uber rides to get nearly 9,000 football fans home safely on one of the most dangerous driving days of the year, the Southern California Honda Dealers are planning their biggest Random Act of Helpfulness yet. But this one means not buying a commercial in the Big Game.

AOR, Secret Weapon Marketing (, known for its unexpected and breakthrough campaigns with evergreen messages, is continuing the Random Acts of Helpfulness* ( by foregoing a spot in the Game and turning it into a financial win for the kids of Boys & Girls Clubs in Southern California. Instead of competing with hundreds of millions of other companies’ advertising dollars, the Southern California Honda Dealers are reinforcing their position to be… helpful.


Here is the Helpful Honda Guys Scorecard!
Pizza Box Advertising

“We are honored that the SoCal Honda Dealers chose the Boys & Girls Clubs in Southern California as the beneficiary of the Random Act of Helpfulness campaign,” said Kelly Reynolds, vice president pacific west with Boys & Girls Clubs of America. “One of the highlights of the Big Game is watching the ads, and this year they will have extra special importance to us. Thank you to the SoCal Honda Dealers and everyone who will play the ‘Helpful Bowl’ for making a difference in the lives of so many kids and teens in our communities.”

The ‘Helpful Bowl’ 2017
In addition to television, radio and online ads, starting January 22nd through February 5th, over 100 local pizza shops will deliver game boards to local residents who order pizza, as a way to to encourage them to play in the Helpful Bowl.
