Super Bowl 2024 Ads You Can Watch Right Now – CNET

Super Bowl 58 is almost here, and that means viewers can count on brands using the big game to capture their attention. More than 115 million people tuned in to last year’s event. Super Bowl Sunday is one of the world’s biggest stages, and advertisers continue to pour money into campaigns. 

In 2023, Tubi duped audiences with its channel-changing trick. This year, as in past years, the ads will aim to entertain, inform, crack you up or dazzle you into spending money. Celebrity cameos are everywhere, as are beer and food, and there are a handful of newcomers on the scene too. To top it off, DoorDash will deliver every item you see in a Super Bowl commercial to one winner — including new cars, candy and a giant bucket of mayo. Here’s a look at the ads that have dropped so far, ahead of Sunday’s game. 

T-Mobile: Flashdance with Jason Momoa, Zach Braff, Donald Faison

Lionel Messi orders Michelob from a beachside bar and winds up whizzing across the sand with his dazzling footwork as he waits for his beer.

E-Trade: Babies flex their skills

A staple during Super Bowl season, the E-Trade babies are back trading barbs about pickleball — while playing “tennis for babies.” Winning at trash talk is not the goal, but the sales pitch may hold your attention.

Starry: Ice Spice’s new love

Starry is Pepsi’s lemon-lime replacement for Sierra Mist, and the brand is playing up that angle by recruiting Ice Spice to drop an ex for something new. Tina Fey everywhere

M&M’s: Ring of comfort
