Super Bowl XLV is upon us this Sunday and even if the annual ritual of communal testosterizing isn’t your thing, the B-narrative is thankfully worthy of tuning in. Just like the game itself, some people take the watching of the Super Bowl ads a little too far. No talking during the commercial breaks, really?
Thankfully those $3 million a pop ad spots will be instantly available on the internet (legally) right when they air on FOX. Hulu is once again rolling out its Ad Zone, which will have high-quality versions of the ads, and the necessary fan voting that sorts out the Duuuudes from the Duds.
New this year is a spiffy looking widget (below) that will update automagically with the new ads as they air. So no need to refresh the page. It even lets you filter by age, gender and location in case you’re interested in what scored high amongst 60+ women from Wisconsin.
In honor of this fandemonium over 30-second morsels of mass consumption, we thought we would take a look back at what won the Hulu viewers over last year:
