Here are all the companies vying for your thirst and hunger during the Super Bowl commercial breaks. 



“The polar bears are watching the game, live.” This game day spot will change depending on the game circumstances. If the 2nd quarter is particularly stressful, then the bear will relieve some tension when his friends toss him a Coke ... if he can catch it.

We all have our superstitions. Take me, for example. I've been wearing my Eli Manning home game jersey ever since they won the division title. And it's working! I haven't taken it off since. This thing has been on, 24/7. Yessiree! Hey, do you guys smell something? 


Pepsi Max
This guy got caught in the act of betrayal. Awkward. 



I think Doritos has it down. See, they don't produce the commercials. They have fans do that. For the past five years, Doritos has had a competition to see who can make the best commercial. We, the viewers, vote for the best one, then the winner gets one million dollars and their ad featured during the big game. All Doritos has to do is pay that hefty $3.5 million bill, then sit back and watch the numbers roll in. Genius. Here are the top five contenders for this year's winner.









Budweiser went the sweet route with a little surprise for our neighbors up north


We will continue to update this as the ads filter out. So be sure to check back frequently. Until then, take a walk down memory lane and revisit some of our favorite spots from last year's game here
