NEW ORLEANS (CBS SF) — Super Bowl advertisers are no longer keeping television spots a secret until the Big Game. Instead, they’re releasing online snippets of their ads or longer video trailers that allude to the action in the Game Day spot.
Here’s a dozen of our favorites to take a look at online before Super Bowl XLVII on Sunday:
Mercedes-Benz: In a spot that has gotten 5.4 million views already on Youtube, supermodel Kate Upton wears a low-cut tank top as she oversees football players washing her car.
Volkswagen: Volkswagen’s teaser spot shows people who have starred in videos online previously erupting in temper tantrums on a sunny hilltop to sing “Get Happy” with reggae singer Jimmy Cliff.
