Many of the Super Bowl commercials everyone will be talking about Monday have already been seen more 140 million times on YouTube.
Google’s huge video site has set up its AdBlitz program for the ninth year teasing and previewing Super Bowl ads.
Nearly 40 ads have been posted on YouTube, representing nearly all of the brands paying $5 million for 30-seconds worth of time on the CBS broadcast.
YouTube says those marketers put their spots on YouTube to help make that investment pay off. The spots released to AdBlitz get 2.2 times more views than those that wait till game day to post.
One brand, Shock Top, created an exclusive teaser ad just for AdBlitz.
