If you’re the type to live tweet the ads instead of the game, this one’s for you. Don’t miss our annual Super Bowl Ad Review where our expert panelists discuss the stories that America’s largest corporations develop to entertain and sell products on the biggest stage in television.
Each year’s crop of ads never fails to produce wildly mixed results. We’ll use polls so you can vote on your favorites and tell us what you absolutely hated. Join us to laugh, cry and shudder (thanks TurboTax “Robochild” commercial from 2019 that I’m still trying to forget).
We look forward to discussing this year’s winners and losers with you in this interactive session!
