It’s strange to fathom, but for many people, the highlight of Super Bowl Sunday arrives when there’s no actual football being played. Super Bowl commercials have become a cultural phenomenon, and with reported ad prices of $5 million for a thirty-second slot, it’s no wonder companies are consistently bringing their A-Game.
From anticipated movie trailers to some good-old-fashioned celebrity-laden product placement, the latest batch of Super Bowl commercials have it all – including several notable appearances from rappers, including Cardi B, Big Sean, and more. If you’re one of those who appreciates the art of the advertisement, why not catch up on all the best ones below.
