As the old joke goes, the Super Bowl is three hours of commercials interrupted by football. For football fans, this year has a great match-up between the Denver Broncos and the Seattle Seahawks, and there’s the possibility of them playing in the snow, which would be awesome. But you don’t get to dominate the ratings every year by only appealing to football fans. The ads are the comic interludes where everyone can join with an opinion, and I’m always surprised when they’re released online early. This year, a Super Bowl spot will cost a record $4.5 million, and companies are deciding to jump to gun in order draw attention before Sunday. Not that anyone’s complaining, and after the jump you’ll find three ads that will play during the Super Bowl. As always, celebrities sell, so one ad has Scarlett Johansson (although it will be edited for game night since there’s a dig at major advertisers Coke and Pepsi), another has Terry Crews driving around with the Muppets, and a third ad has Tom Hiddleston, Mark Strong, and Ben Kingsley being villainous.
