Superbowl Synch V1

Synch Spotlight: Super Bowl Edition

On Sunday, millions of Americans gathered around their TVs to watch one of the most highly televised events of the year — the Super Bowl. 

While the Super Bowl is obviously centered around football, over the years the commercials have evolved to be nearly just as central. In fact, a recent Huffington Post poll found more Americans between the ages of 18 and 30 actually prefer watching the commercials over the game itself.  

With that being said, this week’s Synch Spotlight is dedicated to all things Super Bowl commercials as we run through some of the best ones aired Sunday night and the music featured in them.
