The best Super Bowl ads that you won't see on BBC or Sky tomorrow night

Some big companies have ads coming up tomorrow night.

ONE THING YOU’LL notice if you’re watching the NFL for the first time this weekend is the frustrating regularity of television ad breaks.

TV coverage for American sports is a bit different to what we’re used to at home. Instead of uninterrupted action like what we see in football, GAA and rugby, American football games stall every few minutes.

And during some of those intervals, the coverage cuts to television advertisements. But if you’re watching the game on BBC or Sky Sports, the ads broadcasting in the states won’t appear on your screens.

The Super Bowl is a major draw for companies to place TV ads and the New York Times reports that a 30-second ad for this year’s event costs an estimated $5 million.

Here’s some of the biggest adverts that you won’t be seeing during the Super Bowl broadcast.

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady stars in Intel’s ad.

This ad by Skittles will also get a spin tomorrow night.

Budweiser’s ad about the foundation of its beer is also on the way tomorrow.

Cam Newton plays a starring role in this ad by Buick.

This is Busch’s effort.

And here’s the Bud Light ad.

Jason Statham features in this ad.

The Coen brothers directed this ad for Mercedes.

Avocados From Mexico produced this ad for the Super Bowl.

This is Audi’s ad for the big game.

Kia drafted in actress Melissa McCarthy.
