Tide, Diet Coke and Han Solo: Here are the most memorable ads from Super Bowl LII

POSTED February 5, 2018 9:19 p.m.
Super Bowl LII was about more than just football on Sunday night.

A 2016 study from HuffPost/YouGov found that about 26 percent of young Americans — those infamous millennials — prefer to watch the big game for the commercials. Only 24 percent of younger viewers would rather watch the actual football game.

Similarly, a study from 2016 done by Burson-Marsteller Fan Experience said that many Americans want to wait to see their commercials before the big game airs.

No question exists about hype around commercials. The Deseret News highlighted 10 different commercials that were online ahead of the Super Bowl (some were teasers as well).

We’ve collected some of the best from Sunday night and posted them below.

Here they are.
