Super Bowl Sunday is just one day away and is not just about the game itself. It is also about what goes on during the breaks of the game. Yes, I am of course talking about Super Bowl commercials.
A Super Bowl commercial is not just a lot of pressure, as the game is historically the most-watched telelvision program in America each year, but it is also not cheap. In September, Dan Lovinger of NBC Sports Group reported that spots for the game this year were around $6.5 million for a 30-second ad. NBC, the network broadcasting the Super Bowl this year, has not released official numbers for the cost of an advertisement spot.
