Super Bowl LVIII is here!
While fans tune in to watch what’s going to happen between the San Francisco 49ers and Kansas City Chiefs between the lines, one of the other big parts of the game is the commercials. As the Super Bowl is annually the most-watched event or show in America, companies tend to bring out the stars and get more creative for their high-priced ads.
This year is no different.
With the 30-second spots reportedly going for $7 million, several stars have already been featured by companies that released their ads ahead of the big game.
Let’s take a look at some of the biggest ads for Super Bowl Sunday.
