Super Bowl commercials are airing earlier and earlier each year.
Two weeks before the big football game to decide whether the Denver Broncos or the Seattle Seahawks are the NFL champions of the 2013 season at Super Bowl XLVII, Feb. 2, 2014, in East Rutherford, N.J., we’ve already begun seeing commercials for the commercials. Yes. That’s right. As if you needed a 15-second advertisement to convince you to watch the most-watched thing on TV each year, we’re getting them anyhow. Kind of fitting, considering Amazon reportedly asked for and received a patent to start shipping you items before you’ve even bought them (unless that’s as much of a hoax/feverdreamnightmare as Amazon’s unmanned drone helicopters slicing through your neighborhood). Anyhow. This isn’t even about Amazon. They’re not paying me for this post. And neither is Bud Light.
Bud Light, however, has hired Reggie Watts to star in a Super Bowl commercial in 2014, doing the musical voodoo that he do so well, alongside Arnold Schwarzenegger in a Bjorn Borg getup as a ping-pong/table-tennis player, Don Cheadle with a llama (something something Dalai Lama joke) and a female celebrity who has yet to be fully identified. (That famous lady is Minka Kelly!)
UPDATED (Jan. 31, 2014): Here’s the extended version of just the limo ride with Reggie Watts. Roll it…
Here are the clips to tide you over until more clips come.
Hulu’s AdZone and YouTube’s AdBlitz are among sites already compiling the Super Bowl commercials for you to watch and weigh in on and love and loathe and keep you sidetracked in case football isn’t enough for you this year.
