Want to watch Super Bowl 2024 commercials before the big game? These ads are already live.

Date:


The Super Bowl isn’t only a championship game for pro football, it’s also the biggest day in advertising, with top brands aiming big-budget commercials at an expected audience of more than 100 million viewers. Many of those companies are releasing their ads early, hoping to generate buzz before the February 11 game.

There’s a lot on the line for businesses, which this year are paying $7 million for 30 seconds of air time during Super Bowl LVIII. A winning commercial can stir interest in a brand, cement customer loyalty and even boost sales. 

“It’s the last tent-pole mass media event at the moment,” Kofi Amoo-Gottfried, chief marketing officer for DoorDash, which has a commercial in this year’s Super Bowl, told CBS MoneyWatch. “It’s the one time you have left where you can have 100 million people-plus paying attention to the same thing.”

Super Bowl LVIII will broadcast live on Sunday, February 11, at 6:30 p.m. Eastern time from Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada, on CBS and Nickelodeon, as well as on streaming on Paramount+ (CBS and CBS News are owned by Paramount Global.) Here’s how to watch the Super Bowl.

Super Bowl commercials 2024: Playing it safe

Based on what is seen in the commercials released ahead of the game, this year’s crop is avoiding controversy, perhaps due to last year’s backlash against Bud Light over its marketing deal with transgender TikTok star Dylan Mulvaney and the politics of a presidential election year.

“The first Super Bowl spots to be released embrace light humor,” said Northwestern University marketing professor Tim Calkins. “This isn’t a surprise; safety is key when advertising on the Super Bowl so most advertisers will stay far away from controversial topics.”

Here are some of the Super Bowl commercials and teasers already released ahead of the game.

Anheuser-Busch

The beer maker is going for nostalgia with its one-minute long commercial featuring its famous Clydesdale horses. In the spot, a blizzard threatens to stop a delivery of Budweiser, until a team of Clydesdales are hitched to an old-fashioned wagon loaded with kegs. They travel over a snowy road and into a town where a bar is running low on Budweiser, saving the day.

The horses are greeted in town by a Labrador retriever, another nostalgic callback to previous Super Bowl ads that feature both the iconic Clydesdales and a lab.

BMW

The tagline? “There’s only one Christopher Walken. And only one ultimate driving machine.”

“The reality is everyone has a Walken impression. But there’s only one original,” Rich Silverstein, co-chairman of Goodby Silverstein & Partners, which created the ad for BMW, noted in a statement.
