Let’s be honest: tuning into these Super Bowl 2022 commercials is half of the fun of football’s biggest night—and this year, fans didn’t even have to wait until the big game day to start watching.
Like last year’s Super Bowl commercials, many advertisers chose to get in on the fun early by releasing their Super Bowl 2022 commercials in the days leading up to the highly anticipated championship game between the Los Angeles Rams and the Cincinnati Bengals at Super Bowl LVI. Some early drops include Saturday Night Live alum Colin Jost and Scarlett Johansson‘s commercial for Amazon Alexa, where the new parents find themselves learning a little too much about each other thanks to Alexa’s smart tech ways. Fellow SNL star, Pete Davidson, also landed an early ad released by Hellmann’s brand mayonnaise; in it, the comedian gets tackled by NFL star Jerod Mayo in an effort to remind fans to “tackle” their food waste.
Of course, the Super Bowl 2022 commercials also feature some advertising regulars. Budweiser’s Clydesdale horse makes a return, as does Sam Adam’s “Your Cousin From Boston” character. Other major players like Frito-Lay—which owns Doritos, Lays, Cheetos and more—are also back this year, albeit with some star-studded new faces to Super Bowl Sunday’s commercial lineup. But don’t let us spoil all of the exciting guest appearances! Keep on reading ahead to see the best Super Bowl 2022 commercials for yourself.
Super Bowl 2022 Commercials
Below, we’ve rounded up the Super Bowl 2022 commercials airing before, during and after this year’s championship game. NBC’s pricing for each of these commercials began at $6 million for a 30-second ad spot, per Variety, making these some very hefty investments for each brand. But was it always worth it? We’ll let you watch the Super Bowl 2022 commercials up ahead so you can be the judge of that!

Charlie Puth & Megan Thee Stallion’s Flamin’ Hot Cheetos Ad
Charlie Puth and Megan Thee Stallion team up with a forest of adorable woodland creatures in this new collaboration for Flamin’ Hot Doritos and Cheetos. Speaking to Billboard in February 2022 about the ad, Puth revealed just how excited he was about being in a Super Bowl commercial for the first time: “I’ve never done a Super Bowl commercial before and somehow I’m fortunate enough for it to happen for me this year,” he said. “I’m still pinching myself.”
“Frito-Lay had reached out to me and told me they had a great idea for a commercial where they wanted it to be very musical, so when I heard the term ‘musical’ I was in right away,” he added. “The premise is that all these animals eat these Flamin’ Hot products and they become musically active, they start harmonizing and being in synch and perfect tempo with each other and that’s what happened to my life as well. I have some Cool Ranch Doritos and I’m off to the races writing 5 songs.”

For more about the Super Bowl, football fans can check out When It Was Just a Game: Remembering the First Super Bowl
by Harvey Frommer. The best-selling book delves into the history of the first Super Bowl, which was originally known as the AFL-NFL Championship Game. (The term “Super Bowl” was coined only in its third year.) The debut game, between the winning Green Bay Packers and the Kansas City Chiefs, was played in front of only 61,946 people at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum—an audience well below the stadium’s capacity. Harvey Frommer, a sports historian and reporter, puts the tale of that momentous game together using oral history, gathered by hundreds of interviews with players, coaches, media and spectators alike.
