Super Bowl 2012 Ads
Besides the football the Super Bowl Ads are the main attractions. NBC has sold out all Super Bowl 2012 spots at the end of November with some 30 seconds slots catching close to $4 million. There will be more of the "epic" Super Bowl ads this year. The reason for that is the tremendous success Chrysler had with their Eminem ad and also the wildly popular Volkswagen The Force Spot wast 60 seconds long. The list of Super Bowl 2012 advertisers is complete.

At the post of this Super Bowl FAQ we count 35 excluding Hollywood movie studios. The Super Bowl 2012 will see again a lot of car ads, not as many as last year as several car makers that advertised in 2011 are not coming back. Anheuser-Busch InBev runs the most Super Bowl ads again this year. The most online buzz ahead of the Super Bowl generated Honda with the Ferris Bueller Honda ad and the Acura Ad staring Jerry Seinfeld. Watch all released Super Bowl Ads.
