If you're tuning in to the Super Bowl tomorrow just for the good commercials (and let's be honest, also the margaritas), you're not alone!
The Super Bowl is the premier advertising event of the year. In fact, four of the five most watched telecasts ever were Super Bowls, so It's no wonder that commercials aired during the event are such a big deal.
With that in mind, we think this is the perfect opportunity to watch these commercials with the critical eye of a professional voice over actor. To help in this endeavor, we're providing you with a Super Bowl VO Scavenger Hunt. Send us your answers and we'll compile the results in a Super Bowl Commercials recap.
Just make sure your friends don't mute the TV once the commercials come on.
Have a great weekend,
