What’s Super Bowl Sunday without the commercials?

While the Los Angeles Rams and the New England Patriots duked it out over the Lombardi Trophy this year, there was another battle of the brands raging off the field, on your TV screens.

A premium ad slot during the game doesn’t come cheap. CBS charged north of $US5 million for a 30-second spot in the game this year, in line with how NBC priced it last year.

Several newbies made their Super Bowl debut, with Procter & Gamble’s beauty brand Olay, the dating app Bumble, and Kraft’s frozen-food brand Devour joining regulars like Anheuser-Busch InBev, Avocados From Mexico, and Kia.

Others, like Airbnb, Jaguar, and Land Rover, sat this year out. As did Skittles – which tried to steal attention from the main stage by putting together a one-night-only play called “Skittles Commercial: The Broadway Musical” in lieu of a traditional Super Bowl ad.

Here’s a look at all the ads that ran in the big game. Note that this list includes national advertisers only.
