Super Bowl 50 is coming to Apple's home. I would not be surprised if Apple is among the Silicon Valley companies advertising in Super Bowl 50.

Apple's Super Bowl 1984 commercial is considered one of the best Super Bowl commercials of all time. Since then Apple has only advertised two times during a Super Bowl game. In 2014, Apple was rumored to run a Super Bowl ad to commemorate the 30th anniversary of its 1984 commercial and the Mac, but it did not happen.

2016 could be the year for Apple's fourth Super Bowl commercial. Super Bowl 50 takes place in the heart of Silicon Valley in Santa Clara. Apple' headquarter is in Cupertino and just a 15 minute drive away from the Levi's Stadium, where the Super Bowl 50 will be played.

Apple's first Super Bowl commercial introduced the Mac over 30 years ago. In 1985 the Apple Super Bowl commercial titled "Lemmings" tried to follow-up on the success of the 1984 ad, but failed to do so. In 1999 Apple tried again with a Super Bowl commercial featuring Space Odyssey's HAL 9000. Apple's last Super Bowl ad did not make Super Bowl advertising history either. You can watch all three Apple Super Bowl commercials below.

We expect a slew of Silicon Valley technology companies to show flag and advertise in the Super Bowl 50.
