Each year commercials for the Super bowl are anticipated by many. Sponsors think of fun and creative ways to make people want to buy their product. This year the dominating company that advertised in the super bowl was Anheuser-Busch.

The Doritos commercial broke the Anheuser-Busch 10-time winning streak according to usatoday.com. Anheuser- Busch managed to get second place featuring the horse saving his girlfriend from the Circus. Last year the commercials cost the companies $2.7 million for a 30-second ad. This year the cost went up to $3 million for the same amount of time.
