Watch Super Bowl Ads
- 2009 Seasons
Super Bowl ads are television advertisements run by companies during the Super Bowl, the most watched event in the United States each year. Since the audience for the game reaches a staggering 100 million viewers every year, there is obviously incentive for companies to promote their products and services. Often the ads attempt to be unique and funny, even if the product it's trying to sell is difficult to identify. This creates competition among companies to stand out with the masses and create the most memorable commercial. The ads themselves have become almost as big a spectacle as the actual game. In 2014, the cost of a 30 second advertising spot cost $4 million. With several companies vying for position in the consciousness of consumers in America, it can create pressure to deliver a clever ad. Overall, the business of Super Bowl ads is fun for fans and risky for companies with the possible reward of new customers.
