Are you ready for some Super Bowl commercials and a little football? Even if you’re not a fan of the New England Patriots or the Seattle Seahawks, tuning in for the commercials on game day is a must. It will be tough to pick a favorite among the top ads that include a sappy Budweiser puppy, Bud Light’s super-sized retro game, the return of the sexy Victoria’s Secret Angels, Danica Patrick and the adorable GoDaddy dog, and a nearly-naked beauty in Carl’s Jr.’s racy Super Bowl ad.
Super Bowl XLIX kicks off at 6:30 p.m. on February 1 and NBC is live streaming the big game for free — even if you don’t have cable. Unfortunately, those who choose to use the NBC Live Extra app won’t be able to see the ads during the game, but the network is making sure fans don’t miss out. Ad Age reports that a special NBC Sports Tumblr page was set up to air most of the commercials immediately after they are shown on television.

Cute puppies, beautiful women, the famous Budweiser Clydesdale horses, and an equal amount of both funny and sappy commercials will definitely create a buzz on Super Bowl Sunday. Which ads will be talked about the most? Here are five 2015 Super Bowl commercials that are worth watching while you swig a beer (or wine?) and chow down on pizza and hot wings. And don’t forget — there’s also a football game to watch.
Carl’s Jr.’s ad will be one the most talked about Super Bowl XLIX commercials and proof that a sexy woman in a tiny bikini always draws lots of attention — both negative and positive. Beautiful Charlotte McKinney appears to be naked in the “Au Naturel” commercial, but it’s just a swimsuit that leaves little to the imagination — food porn at its best?
Bud Light will be showing a commercial that has a retro feel. The beer company’s 2015 ad, “Coin,” features a life-size game of Pac-Man that stretches a few city blocks and — surprise — some beer. For anyone who remembers playing Pac-Man, this will be a fun commercial to watch. #ThrowbackSunday, anyone?
Victoria’s Secret will air a 30-second spot during the fourth quarter of the Patriots vs. Seahawks game. This is the lingerie company’s first Super Bowl ad since 2008. The preview shows the VS Angels, including Adriana Lima and Candice Swanepoel, in full football gear, but chances are they will be wearing a lot less on game day.
Budweiser is back with another adorable puppy ad that will undoubtedly be accompanied by sappy music and a hot guy in a plaid shirt. The Washington Post states that the ad will feature the Clydesdale horses and the same puppy from last year’s “Puppy Love” ad — this year he gets lost. Grab the tissues.
GoDaddy trades sexy for cute this year, but NASCAR fans will still get to see Danica Patrick. The web hosting company’s 2015 Super Bowl ad, “Journey Home,” features Danica and the official GoDaddy puppy, Buddy. Patrick promises it won’t be all that sappy, with a surprise ending in store for viewers.
Tune in to watch Super Bowl 2015 and a big lineup of commercials — including this year’s winning Doritos Crash the Super Bowl ad — on February 1, starting at 6:30 p.m. E.T.
