Surely some of you are excited to see the San Francisco 49ers and the Kansas City Chiefs head to Miami to battle it out in Super Bowl LIV, but if you’re reading this website we’re guessing just as many of you are also stoked to see all of the multimillion-dollar Big Game ads that will air during it.
