Last year an average of 111.9 million viewers tuned in to watch the Denver Broncos earn their third Super Bowl championship and defeat the Carolina Panthers. With such a large audience, it's no wonder household name brands are quick to jump on Super Bowl ads. Not to mention, 78 percent of Americans are said to look forward to Super Bowl ads.
I think it's safe to say watching Super Bowl ads has become a well-known American tradition.
