Here’s a roundup of all the Super Bowl LII ads released so far

For millions, the real show during the upcoming Super Bowl will be the commercials that run when the action on the field stops.

The Philadelphia Eagles will go up against the New England Patriots in the 52nd Super Bowl this coming Sunday, but while some people tune in for the football, the rest of us tune in for the halftime show, the game-day parties, and — of course — the ads.

Super Bowl Sunday is almost as well-known for the broadcast of star-studded, multi-million-dollar advertisements from dozens of the world’s largest brands as it is for the game itself.

To stir up buzz ahead of the game, many of those ads are often released ahead of time on YouTube.

If you can’t wait until tomorrow, here’s a roundup of all the ads that have been released so far:

Danny DeVito takes a starring role as the red M&M in M&M’s Super Bowl ad, titled “Human.”

Coca-Cola is a regular presence on Super Bowl Sunday, and brings its A-game this year with a message of diversity:

Until recently, Canadians watching the game on local channels weren’t able to view the advertisements aired during the game because of a practice called simultaneous substitution (simsub), which sees big-budget American ads replaced with Canadian ads throughout the game, reports Canadian tech news site MobileSyrup. 

Since the CRTC banned the practice last year, however, Canadians will be able to view the original advertisements for a second year in a row.
