Companies have started leaking their Super Bowl commercials early. Here are the commercials that are already out there, and rumors about who will be in some of the ads:
Volkswagen’s 2011 commercial with the little kid Darth Vader was the most watched ad from last year’s Super Bowl. This year, they’ll be back with another Star Wars-related ad. Here’s the teaser they’ve released called “The Dark Side”, featuring dogs barking “The Imperial March”:
Chevrolet has already started airing one of its Super Bowl ad called, “Happy Grad”, that was made by a contest winner:
GoDaddy has another sexual-tease-that-really-isn’t-anything ad (yawn). This one features Danica Patrick, Jillian Michaels and a nude model being body-painted:
Doritos will air the winner of their “Crash the Super Bowl” contest, featuring homemade Doritos ads. Look for lots of cute animals and human injuries (which is a general rule for all Super Bowl ads). Here’s one of the finalists:
Century 21‘s ad will feature Donald Trump, Deion Sanders and Apolo Ohno in conjunction with their new tagline, “Smarter. Bolder. Faster.” (We assume that Donald Trump is “smarter”, Deion is “bolder,” and Apolo is the “faster.” Sounds lame, right?)
Other celebrities that will pop up in Super Bowl ads:
Troy Aikman (Bridgestone), David Beckham (H&M), Mark Cuban (appearing with a dog named Mr. Quigly for Sketchers’ GoRun shoes), Motley Crue (Kia), Pussycat Dolls, Joan Rivers, Andy Samberg, John Stamos (Dannon’s Greek Yogurt), X-Factor Winner Melanie Amaro for her Super Bowl ad prize and more.
