Tide's Super Bowl Stain: Part 2

By Nathan Skid and David Hall | March 02, 2017 |

In Episode 2 of Anatomy of an Ad: The Stain, we look at how the Tide team overcame the deluge during filming and put the finishing touches on an unprecedented three-part campaign they hope will make Super Bowl history.
