There are only hours left until the Super Bowl Sunday kick-off and the Carolina Panthers face the Denver Broncos. Whether or not you are interested in sports, there is always something worth watching the telecast for — the commercials. Lucky for you the internet has almost all of them up already. Here are all of the 2016 Super Bowl commercials so far, so you'll know what's coming once the show is underway.
Advertising is a huge part of the Super Bowl. Since it's consistently the highest rated television event of the year, according to Vox, advertisers pull out all the stops, creatively and financially. This year, CBS charged $5 million for a 30 second ad, compared to last year, when NBC charged advertisers $4.5 million per 30 seconds of advertising, according to Bleacher Report. I know, right? Crazy.
The Huffington Post reported that the 2015 Super Bowl was the most-watched show in United States television history, with a massive 114.4 million viewers tuning into the broadcast. In the eyes of brands, that may make $5 million seem like pennies compared to the massive amount of exposure they get during the broadcast.
The 2016 commercials and commercial teasers posted on YouTube so far this year have not disappointed. Check out all of the ones released so far:
