The official pregame is scheduled to start on Sunday, Feb. 5, at 2 p.m. ET/ 11 a.m. PT on FOX; Finally, Super Bowl LI will kick things off at 6:30 p.m. ET/3:30 p.m. PT on FOX.

Perhaps no brand has more masterfully inserted itself into a Super Bowl conversation than Old Spice, which was included in several "best of" lists of game-day ads in 2010 despite the fact that it simply published a viral ad on YouTube during the game. We've had some big ones in previous years, especially in the memorable Bud Light ad that featured the likes of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Don Cheadle for its "Up For Whatever" campaign.

This year, Proctor & Gamble will be debuting not one, but three ads in the coveted prime air time.

But there are clearly many success stories.
"Sports, advertising and music are being infiltrated by politics", says Allan.
Forbes estimated that over 100 million people will tune in and a 30-second commercial costs an average of $5 million. Even if viewers can recall the product or brand being advertised, very few spots provide sufficient unique benefits to give buyers good reasons to buy.
