The Super Bowl is less than a week away, but brands have already started releasing their commercials for the biggest TV event of the year.
Fox, the network airing the 2020 Super Bowl, had sold out its advertising slots by November. Fox had been selling 30-second slots for as much as $5.6 million. The brands advertising in this year's Super Bowl game include Facebook, Snickers, Heinz, Pop-Tarts, Procter & Gamble and more. Viewers should expect some political flavor too, with Michael Bloomberg and Donald Trump airing their presidential campaign ads during the game.
Here are the Super Bowl commercials that have already been released. This list will be updated as brands release their official spots:
Alexa's 90-second spot with Ellen Degeneres and Portia de Rossi imagines life without the voice assistant. The spot explores what requests like "What's today's news?" or "Play that song I like" would have looked like in days of yore (or in a fantasy world).
Amazon Prime Video will air a 60-second spot for its original "Hunters" series, which will be about a band of Nazi hunters who have "set out to stop the Fourth Reich from rising to power in 1970s America." The show will be available on February 21.
Audi's 60-second spot features actress Maisie Williams, best known for her role as Arya in HBO's "Game of Thrones," driving an Audi e-tron and singing "Let It Go" from Disney's 2013 hit "Frozen." In the spot, Williams drives the zero-emissions crossover away from a crowded intersection of carbon-emitting vehicles with internal combustion engines

Cheetos' spot gives new meaning to "Can't Touch This" with the help of MC Hammer and Cheetos Popcorn.
Coca-Cola's new campaign for its energy drink Coke Energy debuts during the Super Bowl.

Hill hand-selected Scorcese to join him in the commercial, Coke said.
Discover's two 15-second spots, made with The Martin Agency, will run in the same commercial break during the Super Bowl with an ad running in between. Both feature a litany of pop-culture moments.

Pepsi's spot for its Zero Sugar version features Missy Elliott and H.E.R. performing a rendition of the Rolling Stones' "Paint it Black" (with a subtle reference to Coca-Cola's red cans and the Pepsi Zero Sugar cans' black exterior). The spot was done with Goodby Silverstein & Partners.

This spot from WeatherTech features Scout, the dog owned by David MacNeil, the company's founder and CEO.
