Which ads came out on top?
At $3.5 million per 30-second spot, companies willing to pay for Super Bowl XLVI commercials are looking for additional ways to make use of their most expensive promotional seconds by releasing their commercials early.
For non-football fans, this means you won't have to sit around watching the big game on Sunday to join on in the Monday water cooler talk. For football fans, this means you'll get to brag about knowing which commercials are the best – before they air on television.
If you're looking for movie trailers, we'll have a complete list of Superbowl Movie Trailers posted after the big game.
Check out our ever-expanding list of 2012 Super Bowl commercials below. While not everyone has released their ads early, the majority of companies have.
