Butterfinger. Butterfinger will be getting their slot during the third quarter of of the big game and they were able to let the world know during incredible skydiving stunt. How awesome is that? Recently, Butterfinger has generated a ton buzz due to their unprecedented offering NFL players up to $50K to cover fines from excessive celebrating during the game. The man behind this controversial idea is no other than former NFL wide receiver, Terrell Owens, who had his share of penalties and fines during his playing days due to some of his extraordinary celebration routines.

Colgate. Colgate will be airing right before the ending of the first half. This unique add will be pushing the idea of saving water while brushing teeth, a theme that rings close to home to California residents who suffered through an unprecedented drought during 2015.

Halftime Show & Ticket Prices

Halftime shows at the Superbowl have always been a been a huge spectacle, drawing in millions of viewers. Hoping to top last years record breaking performance, which drew in 115.3 million viewers to watch Katy Perry, Left Shark, and surprise guest Missy Elliot. This year, Coldplay and the Queen Bee herself, Beyonce, are slated to perform and anticipated to smash last years ratings.

Currently, the average ticket price is is around $6,000, with the cheapest sitting at about $4,000 (binoculars not included). However most aren’t jumping at the chance to trade their homes for seats at the Super Bowl, and will choose to watch it at home surrounded by family friends and plenty of buffalo chicken dip.

But for those who really need to be front-and-center, a measly $30,000 will get you in the VIP section at the 50 yard line.

Super Bowl 50 will be great event to watch as there is a lot at stake. With two incredible teams, one boasting the best defense, while the other boasts the best offense, and a possible storybook ending for Peyton Manning, this could be the most incredible Super Bowl yet.

Super Bowl 50… What to Expect

Super Bowl 50 is finally set after both the Denver Broncos and Carolina Panthers won their conference championship games on January 24th. The game will be played at Levi’s Stadium, home of the San Francisco 49ers.ball-674372_960_720

The theme of the upcoming Super Bowl is new school versus old school, with Cam Newton, a young rising star on the Panthers will taking on the future Hall of Famer, Peyton Manning of the Broncos. This may very well be Peyton’s final game after a injury-riddled season. While we know the Super Bowl, it’s halftime show, and the creative commercials peppered in between always draws in a ton of viewers, the buzz amplified after these two teams punched their ticket to Santa Clara.

Many brands have already given glimpses about the ads they will be releasing on Super Bowl Sunday. Do you want to know what the average cost of 30 second slot during the the Super Bowl is? Just a mere $5 million. It is unbelievable how much these ads pay to get on the air.

Each year, television networks CBS, FOX, and NBC alternate airing the Super Bowl. This year, CBS is scheduled to host it and recently announced they wouldn’t be surprised if some ads would pay upwards of $6 million for a time slot.

Here are few ads that will make their way to the biggest sporting event in America.

Acura. You will be able to view this Acura ad during first quarter of the game, so you won’t have to wait too long for it. Acura will be making big announcement as they are launching a new automobile that should get consumers hyped: the NSX Supercar. Acura is hoping it will be one of the hottest cars out on the market, capitolizing off of the Super Bowl in order to show the world how incredible it really is. According to I4U News, this will be the most expensive car ever advertised in a Super Bowl ad.

Budweiser. Budweiser was a big hit the during the past few Super Bowls because America fell love with the gorgeous labrador puppies that were shown on their ads. However, say bye-bye to the puppies this year and say hello to comedy powerhouses Amy Schumer and Seth Rogan. I know it might be devastating news for the fans of the cuter things in life, but the puppies have no impact on beer sales and therefore, it is time for a change.

Stay tuned for part two of this post, where I talk about more ads to look for during the Super Bowl, the halftime show, and ticket prices!
