Some experts are predicting this viewership of Super Bowl will surpass that of XXX (1996 for those of you Roman numerically challenged), which set the record with more than 94,800,000 viewers.
And some of them may actually care about the game (New York Giants vs. New England Patriots for those of you who are living-under-a-rock challenged). But for the rest of us, the real reason after the beer and guacamole, are the ads.
We’ll be putting all the ads on msnbc.com soon after they air during the game, the first round are in the video gallery to the right. And soon after the game we’ll be featuring our award-winningSuper Bowl Ad Showdown that allows you to rankthe best spots, view them and vote for the best (you can see last year’s Showdown, and watch all the ads, ).
Last year, msnbc.com viewers named as the runaway winner. With Bud Light and Budweiser having seven spots total, they may reclaim ad supremacy.
