Pfiz­er, J&J, No­vo, Lil­ly and Sanofi among phar­ma TV ads jam­ming at Gram­my mu­sic awards

Just one week af­ter phar­ma ads stormed the Os­cars’ red car­pet with five TV com­mer­cials, Gram­my mu­sic show ad­ver­tis­ers eas­i­ly broke that record.

Eleven phar­ma com­pa­nies aired TV ads dur­ing the star-stud­ded mu­sic fest on Sun­day night — and that doesn’t even in­clude an HHS vac­cine ad plus 2 over-the-counter drugs from John­son & John­son’s con­sumer group.

Three type 2 di­a­betes brands, 3 vac­cine ads and 2 can­cer-re­lat­ed TV spots aired along with sin­gle com­mer­cials for eczema, bipo­lar de­pres­sion and ul­cer­a­tive col­i­tis dur­ing the 3 ½ hour show. HHS’ “We Can Do This” Covid-19 vac­cine en­cour­age­ment al­so ran along with J&J ads for OTC Zyrtec and Pep­cid.
