The Super Bowl is the biggest sporting event in America. While most of us are tuning in for the game, Super Bowl commercials are now as as important an experience as eating way too much fried food and fighting over which Puppy Bowl team is cutest.

With all those eyeballs glued to the television screen, advertisers know that the Super Bowl is a brand's prime opportunity to make an impression.
