44 years of Super Bowl Commercials.

Welcome to 2016. We now have 44 years of super bowl commercials. I repeat. Forty-four, FORTY-FOUR! 44 years of super bowl ads! This year they dropped the roman numeral system, so it's "Super Bowl 50", as a sole “L” would have looked a little odd.

Welcome to the worlds largest archive of superbowl commercials. In some years all the regional ads are included as well, but "banned ads" that claim to have been rejected from the superbowl are not. If it aired nationally during the superbowl, it's included. We now have 43 out of the 47 super bowl years, making this the worlds largest collection of super bowl ads. You're welcome!
For the latest gossip about this years super bowl ads, see super bowl commercials news & reviews topic.

Yes, all the red year names are links bringing you deeper into super bowl commercial goodness! Have fun now.
