It's no secret that at least half of the fun of watching the Super Bowl is seeing the big-budget, blockbuster commercials between plays. But sometimes a
genius really, really weird ad slips through the cracks. And by slips through the cracks, we mean it only airs in a few "select" markets. Like this Will Ferrell ad for Old Milwaukee beer.
The commercial, which manages to suck up an entire minute of airtime, features a nice Christian woman (as deduced by her cross necklace) woman on a bus. At first, she just stares longingly out the window—until she turns to a mustached Will Ferrell and beings making out. We're not talking some friendly kiss. This is a full on face-sucking session. The whole tryst is set to a distinct Chinese song, identified as "Mother, Where Are You?" Creepy. Get More »
All around the country, fans are gathering online and in person to chat about the amazing way that, uh, that one team totally beat the other one with that great... thing they did. With the ball. That was amazing.
Okay, fine, you caught us: We were hardly paying any attention to the actual game itself. But that's not because we weren't watching the Super Bowl — it's because we were too busy getting totally pumped by all the great new movie trailers that aired during the game.
So with that in mind, here's our look at all the best new trailers from this year's Super Bowl. And seriously: Congratulations to the fans of whichever team won whatever. Get More »
Why watch the Puppy Bowl when you can get your puppy fix and more with this adorable supercut?

Sports fans, and football fans in general, enjoy using war metaphors to describe the action. But this year, the Super Bowl is going to take things to new heights thanks to the release of the first television teaser for Brad Pitt's upcoming zombie epic "World War Z."
Forget sacking the quarterback — how about eating his brain instead?

This Super Bowl Sunday, family is worth fighting for.
"Warrior" stars Joel Edgerton and Tom Hardy as two brothers who are pitted against each other in an epic mixed martial arts match. This weekend, life will imitate art as real-life brothers Jim Harbaugh and John Harbaugh stand on opposite sides of the football field as the proud coaches of, respectively, the San Francisco 49ers and the Baltimore Ravens.
We'd love to be a fly on the wall at the next Harbaugh family gathering. Oh my, the tension.
Anyway, will the game end with one of them tapping out when the other says he loves him, all set to the rousing sounds of "About Today" by The National? Hell no.

On Super Bowl Sunday, the best and baddest of the professional football world will lay it on the line for the biggest of prizes. But only a select few will go on to achieve an even greater glory: movie superstardom.
Okay, the odds of anybody from the NFL rubbing shoulders with Daniel Day-Lewis is somewhat slim, but there have been several former players who have acquitted themselves well on the big screen. Get More »
Who says Hollywood doesn't know sports? With Super Bowl XLVI just days away, many in the movie biz are showing their true colors in preparation for the big game. But the fandom elevates when two storied teams like the New York Giants and the New England Patriots face off.
Here, we take a look at 10 die-hard celebrity fans for each team. Based on this study alone, the Patriots fans may be better-looking; but if a fight were to break out at the bar this weekend, we'd want these Giants fans to have our back.
Remember that awesome Volkswagen commercial featuring the pint-sized scourge of the galaxy who came to be known as "Kid Darth Vader" that aired during last year's Super Bowl?
Well, like the "Star Wars" movies before it, that ad has spawned a sequel, one that Volkswagen is calling "The Dog Strikes Back." In this new adventure, a family dog engages in a series of doggie activities, both surreal and mundane, before becoming inspired to chase after the sweet Volkswagen bug cruising down the suburban street.

In America, football is seen as the ultimate team sport, with eleven players on each side of the ball working together to accomplish a goal that no single player could accomplish alone.

And we've got your first sneak peek of it right here. Football Fans Assemble! Get More »
