Sites to watch Super Bowl ads - old and new - online

Ah, the Super Bowl. It's a chance to watch the two greatest teams in the National Football League square off for supremacy. But when the athletes aren't tackling each other or planning their plays, commercials take centre stage.

Super Bowl ads have become must-see sensations, with advertisers paying up to $3 million a spot. But here in Canada, it's highly unlikedly that we'll see the same famous ads our American counterparts will at the same time.

But if you have to watch the advertising blockbusters as soon as they come out, there's a site to feed your fix.

YouTube's AdBlitz channel will be posting the ads online as they air during the game so you can watch them.

There's also a social component to the site - you can vote for your favourite ad and win some prizes.

If you want to re-watch your favourite commercials from previous years, Superbowl-ads.com has compiled them all in one handy site where you can even browse them by year. It sure beats searching and searching to see that Go Daddy or Doritios commercial again and again. 

The site has posted teasers to this year's commercials as well and even a couple that have already been release. The VW Darth Vader/Star Wars themed ad is my pick.

What has been your favourite Super Bowl ad?
