Get an early look at dozens of Super Bowl 50 commercials

Instant replay isn’t just for the game.

Some people want to see their favorite commercials again and again.

We can’t tell you what will happen during the game — Peyton Manning throws four interceptions before halftime — but we can give you an early look at dozens of Super Bowl 50’s commercials here.

Right up there. Just click on the link.

The usual suspects — Budweiser, Doritos and Pepsi — are all back. There are some new faces, too, like Amazon, Marmot and Pokemon.

I had no idea what Alec Baldwin and Dan Marino were promoting, so I looked it up.

Maybe that was the point.

Drake dances. Amy Schumer and Seth Rogen won’t stop talking about their caucus. And Willem Dafoe wears a dress. Their 30-second spots cost companies $5 million just to air. That means Cam Newton’s $13 million base salary will be more than paid for during the game’s first commercial break.

About 114.4 million Americans watched the Super Bowl last year. A poll by the National Retail Federation concluded that about 77 percent of viewers look forward to watching Super Bowl commercials.

That’s money well spent.

There’s a wiener dog stampede, a vegan bear and a choir of sheep. A puppymonkeybaby — you read that right — also makes an appearance.

In other animal cameo news, Budweiser got rid of the puppy and barely shows their horses. At one point the company’s ad says its beer is “not for everyone.”

I can’t believe they got rid of the puppy.

Some are just downright stupid.

I’ll let you be the judge.
