Super Bowl Sunday is the one day a year when non-football fans can enjoy a game all thanks to a plethora of entertaining commercials.
Commercials that run before, during and after the Super Bowl generate a lot of buzz due to the wide audience ads reach, creating immense exposure for products and services. However, captivating attention at such high volume carries a hefty price tag, costing companies a whopping $6.5 million per 30-second slot in addition to production fees.
Super Bowl commercials are known to be iconic, not only for their high-quality cinematography and special effects but their unpredictability, occasional controversy and humor that may leave you speechless. The demand to get on-air time is so high that NBC sold-out allocated commercial time before the 2021-22 NFL season even started.
Super Bowl LVI will feature the Los Angeles Rams and the Cincinnati Bengals, airing Sunday, Feb. 13, at 6:30 p.m. ET. Grab your chicken wings and your favorite game-day beer as we take a look at where you can watch all your favorite Super Bowl LVI commercials.

Can you watch any of the Super Bowl commercials early?
Ultra fans of the commercials are in luck. While all the commercials will be aired live during the game, some companies will opt to release a trailer or even the entire ad on Youtube or social media in the week leading up to kickoff.
This trend of early releases largely dates back to a 2011 Volkswagen commercial titled “The Force,” featuring a young boy dressed as Darth Vader unsuccessfully conjuring “the force” throughout his house until he encounters the automatic start Volkswagen in the driveway.
The ad was well-received, with Time Magazine labeling it “The Ad that Changed Super Bowl Commercials Forever.”
