It is safe to say that if this is going to start a new era in advertising from the company it is working out pretty well. Being one of the first to leak their commercial has certainly got them quite a bit of press for the maneuver. Still, the commercial itself is pretty dull.

Take a Look Back At Last Year

Since the Super Bowl is basically a holiday and it happens to be just a couple of days away it may not be such a bad idea to start getting prepared for it a little bit in advance. A bit like people, start to listen to Christmas music once December rolls around.

What To Expect From The Game Itself

Of course, if you are really going to be prepping for the holiday you can't forget the game itself. If you are not a big football fan this may actually be a year where you enjoy the game.

That has a lot to do with the fact that the Kansas City Chiefs happen to play an upbeat and fast style of football. Which, can certainly be enjoyed even by some casual fans. If you want to know what to expect taking a look at these videos can certainly help
