  1. Super Bowl LII kicks off this Sunday between the New England Patriots and the Philadelphia Eagles. While many will legitimately be interested in the gridiron action, plenty of viewers will be tuning in simply to soak in the commercials – an interesting dynamic in its own right considering people largely despite commercials or advertising of any sort.

    Major advertisers typically bring their A-game to the Super Bowl, and rightfully so when paying more than $5 million for a 30-second ad. The annual competition for “Best Super Bowl commercial” is fierce and this year, Amazon has emerged as an early frontrunner with its full-length “Alexa Loses Her Voice” spot.

    The clip features cameos from plenty of famous faces including Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, Anthony Hopkins and Gordon Ramsay, just to name a few.

    Super Bowl LII airs live from U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis on February 4. Kickoff is set for 6:30 PM Eastern.

    It's a bloody advert! Why would you geo-lock it?!

    I'm literally laughing out loud right now.

    I will be watching the Superbowl to watch the Patriots lose. They won't, the refs will make sure of that, but one can dream!

    Still think the doritos/mountain dew one is funnier, though this is great too.

    Ooph. Never heard of that happening before. Maybe because it features a bathtub scene? Depends on where you live, I guess.
