For those who are less invested in the outcome of the game itself, Super Bowl ads are a big deal. Generally you can count on a couple of truly funny ones, a smattering of amusing ones and some truly awful ones.
The first strong entrant for this year's Super Bowl is this one, from Budweiser. If you love dogs, you'll probably love this.
Most Super Bowl commercials are pre-released these days, so it's not difficult to find a favorite before the game ever airs. For those who need a brief break from Falcons football and Broncos-Seahawks matchup questions, I'll ask: What's your favorite commercial thus far?
