Super Bowl 2016 TV ad gallery

TV ads are an integral part of the extraordinary media event that is the Super Bowl. They are anticipated, seeded, teased out, viewed and reviewed with almost as much enthusiasm as the big game itself. The Superbowl is all about the numbers, from a baffling phalanx of Roman numerals, to yards gained, to most tweeted about commercials, and over a hundred million people watching it all live on the telly.

We have carefully curated this Super Bowl ad gallery, ensuring you get to see the best of the best. You'll get to see A-listers Anthony Hopkins selling-out shamelessly for Turbo Tax, and  Steven Tyler baffled by a Skittles self-portrait. Further delights include Mountain Dew's weird and wonderful 'Puppy Monkey Baby', an emotional trip from Audi with their 'Commander' spot featuring music from the late great David Bowie, and Po the Panda of Kung Fu Panda fame utilising the power of TV advertising to attract customers to his noodle restaurant.

Plus, you'll get to see the ads most talked about on social media during the game.
