Super Bowl advertisements have become a favorite aspect of the NFL’s biggest game, mainly since the broadcast is often the most-watched television event of the year. In fact, many tune into the game just to see the commercials and don’t care much about the actual football being played.

According to AdAge, ad spending for the Super Bowl has been $5.4 billion over 52 years.
