Every year, hundreds of thousands tune into their TV sets to catch a glimpse of the Super Bowl – an annual championship game of the National Football League (NFL) in America. With commercial slot rates at an all-time high during this time, companies put on their A-game when it comes to ads. Super Bowl ads, like Super Bowl itself, have attained somewhat legendary status, and there’s a good reason why.
