There’s a good number of Super Bowl trailers expected during today’s big game between the Green Bay Packers and the Pittsburg Steelers. Following Apple’s 1984 commercial introducing the Macintosh computer, directed by Ridley Scott, the broadcast of the Super Bowl became the premier showcase for high concept and expensive commercials. Famous commercial campaigns include the Budweiser “Bud Bowl” campaign and the 1999 and 2000 dot-com ads. Prices have increased every year, with advertisers paying as much as $3 million for a thirty-second spot during Super Bowl XLIII in 2009. Considering the Super Bowl has an annual global audience of around one billion people, I am assuming most people will have already seen most, if not all of these ads. With that said I don’t feel the need to write anymore. You can watch all the ads below. Enjoy!
