Picture this: you wake up next Monday tired, hungover, and disappointed that you failed to win any money on Super Bowl Squares for the fifth year in a row. This is not much of a fantasy. This is you after every Super Bowl. What is worse? This year you missed the commercial everyone is talking about.

Have no fear! The ever-evolving media industry has led to more and more companies releasing their Super Bowl ads before game itself. With a 30-second commercial reportedly going for more than $5 million for this year’s big game, companies are trying to get the most bang for their buck by pairing their Super Bowl spots with massive online and social media campaigns.
