Almost as much of an event as the game itself is the bevy of commercials that air during the Super Bowl every year, which isn’t surprising given that it’s regularly the most watched television event of the year. With that many eyeballs on the same channel for an extended period of time (in the age of Netflix, Hulu, VOD, etc. audiences are more spread out than ever), various companies take the opportunity to tout their products in hopefully exciting and humorous ways.
This year is no different, and we’ll be collecting the best Super Bowl commercials that air during Super Bowl XLIX throughout the night and posting them here. As the article will be updated regularly, be sure to check back frequently and chime in with your favorite ad thus far.
