A Super sport

Mahendra Gupta, Ph.D. (left), dean and the Geraldine J. and Robert L. Virgil Professor of Accounting and Management at Olin Business School, catches the “winning pass” at the ninth annual Super Ad Bowl, sponsored by the Olin Marketing Association (OMA) on Feb. 1 at the Knight Center. MBA student Tetsuya Udo scored one of the winning bids to throw a pie at a professor. Ticket sales, a raffle and silent auction at the event raised more than $1,300 for Meds and Food For Kids, an organization dedicated to curing child malnutrition in Haiti. About 100 students, friends and faculty attended OMA’s Super Ad Bowl festivities and voted the Doritos/Crystal Ball commercial as the best ad during the game, followed by Teleflora, Bud Light/Conan O’Brien and Cash4Gold. Tied for fifth place were Pepsi/Cross Generations and Budweiser/Clydesdale fetch.
