Ready for some Super Bowl LI commercials? Get a start here …


You probably won’t see any sports cards in commercials during Super Bowl LI, but there will be plenty of collectors watching those pricey spots and Buzz will share some favorites here as they arrive during the game.

Biggest question on my mind first is … will PuppyMonkeyBaby make a triumphant return?

Which one is best? Be sure to tell Buzz what you think here or on Twitter. For now, here are the early highlights.

Super Bowl Commercial: Buick
Buzz’s Take: “If that’s a Buick, then my kid’s Cam Newton.” (Spoiler alert: Your kid won’t be winning the Super Bowl then … too soon?)

Super Bowl Commercial: Kia Niro
Buzz’s Take: Melissa McCarthy follows up her epic Sean Spicer SNL spot with a Super Bowl commercial where she shows you how “it’s tough to be an eco-warrior.”

Super Bowl Commercial: T-Mobile
Buzz’s Take: Gronk flexes his acting chops and Bieber tries to class it up (or something).

More to come if you keep reading — and more to come during the game, too.

Buzz’s Take: A classy football-related commercial that would make Donovan McNabb’s mom proud.

Super Bowl Commercial: X-Men Apocalypse
Buzz’s Take: Buzz hadn’t seen anything for this one, so it was pretty striking. (Meanwhile, 41 million of you have seen the previous trailer since December on just one YouTube account … Buzz was apparently in Star Wars mode back then.)

Super Bowl Commercial: Bud Light
Buzz’s Take: In what’s likely to be a series of commercials, Seth Rogen and Amy Schumer spoof politics. (For the record, neither one has a certified auto … just saying.)

Super Bowl Commercial: Doritos
Buzz’s Take: The leader for the creepiest and funniest commercial in the game so far …
