(Rocket Mortgage landed the number 1 and 2 spots on USA Today’s AdMeter)

Congratulations to Highdive for once again landing atop of USA Today’s Admeter. The agency’s two 60-second Super Bowl LV spots for Quicken’s Rocket Mortgage were ranked number one and two.

In 2020, Highdive scored the number one spot with Jeep. The spot featured a recreation of the hit romcom, Groundhog Day, and brought back Bill Murray as self-centered weatherman Phil Connors.

The agency also landed the number 5 spot on Admeter with Rocket Mortgage’s Super Bowl commercial. In the gut-busting spot, the world got to see Jason Momoa like they’ve never seen him before.

This year, the agency enlisted popular comedian Tracy Morgan for two spots. Morgan took the buyers through a myriad of wild, crazy and hilarious scenarios that clearly displayed how “pretty sure” simply isn’t an option.

The first, titled “Pretty Sure,” featured Morgan, Guardians of the Galaxy’s Dave Bautista and Liza Koshy to illustrate that from murder hornets to buying a home, certain is better – way better. You can’t be pretty sure:


In the second spot, titled “Certain is Better,” Morgan and San Diego Charger defensive end Joey Bosa proved that certain is always better through a series of hilarious vignettes.

The mortgage company’s double win drew praise from critics, social media users and the overall voting public who weighed in on Ad Meter.

The star-studded spots clearly resonated with viewers, making Rocket Mortgage the first brand in 14 years to dominate the ranking platform in such a way.

“We enjoyed an exciting game, and appreciate the accolades our commercials are receiving, but what really meant most to us was changing the lives of all the winners in our Super Bowl Squares Sweepstakes,” said Casey Hurbis, Chief Marketing Officer for Rocket Mortgage. “We love taking some of the most exciting events in sports and finding ways to elevate the experience – which we accomplished with the Rocket Mortgage Squares giveaway. Whether it’s helping Americans become homeowners for the first time, finding a home that better fits their life or make their finances more comfortable – we are lucky to be in a position that allows us to make dreams come true every day.”

Big congrats to the team at Highdive. We’re “Pretty Sure” you did great.
