Super Bowl LVIII is here!
As fans watch what will happen between the lines between the San Francisco 49ers and Kansas City Chiefs, one of the other big parts of the game is the commercials. With the Super Bowl being the most watched event or program in America each year, companies tend to bring out the stars and get more creative for their expensive advertising.
This year is no different.
With the 30-second spots reportedly costing $7 million, several stars have already been highlighted 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.
