NEW YORK (AP) — Advertisers including Budweiser, M&Ms, Groupon and others have begun to release their ads ahead of Super Bowl Sunday to try to drum up some buzz. It’s a crucial time to capture attention since marketers spend $5 million per 30-second spot for airtime alone.
While teaser ads abound, here’s a look at the full Super Bowl ads that have been released as of Monday. So far advertisers are mostly focusing on silly humor and heartwarming messages. The Super Bowl between the New England Patriots and Philadelphia Eagles airs Sunday night on NBC.
Budweiser: The beer maker’s ad features a brewery that turns out cans of water for places in need, to the tune of “Stand By Me.” Click here for the ad.
Febreze: The air freshener goes all in for toilet humor with a pseudo-documentary ad about Dave, a man whose “bleep don’t stink.” The kicker is that David is not at your Super Bowl party — so you should use Febreze. Click here for the ad.
Groupon: The deal-site’s ad features Tiffany Haddish and shows football players kicking a football at a rich man who doesn’t support local business. Click here for the ad.
Lexus: The carmaker promotes its new luxury sedan with an action-packed ad featuring the Black Panther character from Marvel’s new movie. Click here for the ad.
M&Ms: The chocolate candy’s ad shows a cartoon M&M character transforming into Danny DeVito after he finds a lucky penny and is relieved that no one wants to eat him. Click here for the ad.
