Super Bowl ads are probably more famous around the world than the game of American football itself. They promise big budgets, big name stars, and sometimes there is even a little football here and there.
The 2018 edition of the Super Bowl, which took place on February 4, was no exception. Here you have the eight best ads, the most fun and original, of the evening.
