Here come the Super Bowl commercials featuring musicians

Now that we’ve finally reached Super Bowl week, it’s time to start sorting through the big-budget commercials that will run during the game.

Canadians should note, however, that thanks to recent CRTC rule changes, we will not get the same feed as they do in America. It’s back to having Canadian spots subbed in for the Canadian broadcast of the game. That means we’ll have to work a little harder to see all the commercials ‘Murcia is going to talking about.

Let’s begin with this Pepsi ad featuring Steve Carrell, Cardi B, and Lil Jon.

And here’s Chance the Rapper for Doritos.

More to come, I’m sure.
