We are about a month away from the biggest footbal game of the year in Indianapolis, Indiana. We don't even know who is going to be playing in the game, but that doesn't matter to advertisers as NBC has already sold out of Advertising space in this year's Super Bowl On February 5th. The ad space was actually filled shortly after Thanksgiving.

If you had $3.5 Million dollars, you could have had your business advertise for 30 seconds at this years game. That was the average price of ads, although one advertiser paid $4 Million.

What can we expect from the ads this year?  Pepsi will have a pair of spots, one that stars X-Factor winner Melanie Amaro, there will be an ad for The Voice which premieres right after the game, Doritos will use The Lonely Island for a spot and M&M's will have a spot for the first time since the 90's. You can definitely expect ads from Budweiser, Coca-Cola, most major car companies and movie trailers as well.

I love my football, but I enjoy the commercials every year too. If I am not a fan of the 2 teams playing, I know there is always something to look forward to every year.  Here are a few of my favorites from last year.
