Do you watch the Super Bowl for the game or for the ads?
The Super Bowl crowns the NFL champion—that's the National Football League champion, not the advertising champion. Before all the businesses tainted the league, the Super Bowl was supposed to be the explosive finish to a tough NFL season.
If you're a real fan watching the Super Bowl, you're plopping down on the couch to watch the best of the best square off in a battle of wills for a championship ring. There are miraculous catches, big hits, incredible comebacks and last-second touchdowns. Even a casual observer should be entertained by watching these men go to war for championship glory. The game is better than the ads.
The Super Bowl has had some wild moments in recent memory, but there have been a lot of duds too. What was supposed to be the best football all year ends up being a snoozefest, with one team dominating or a defensive struggle with little scoring. One thing watchers can depend on are the ads.
With commercials, viewers are guaranteed to enjoy something. Whether it's a player giving a jersey to a kid or horses playing football, the ads are the true stars of the Super Bowl. They are just as anticipated as the game, and bring a wider audience to the Super Bowl. Without commercials, the Super Bowl would just be another game. Ads make it a worldwide phenomenon. Commercials are more entertaining (and widely appreciated) than the game.
