Sneak peek at this year's big-budget Super Bowl commercials (VIDEOS)

Jan 29 2019, 5:25 pm

Like peanut butter and jelly, the Super Bowl and commercials go hand-in-hand.

With millions of eyes tuning in from all over the globe, the NFL’s big game has become a massive platform for brands to try to one-up each other with star-studded, big-budget ad spots.

The average cost for a 30-second spot in last year’s Super Bowl was $5 million, and with that number expected to rise this year, companies need to make their ads count.

For the third year in a row, you’ll be able to view these pricey ads on the live CBS broadcast in Canada.

With the big game only a few days away, some of the big-name brands have already released their commercials online. We’ve rounded them up to give you a sneak peek at what you can look forward to this Super Bowl Sunday.
