(RNN) - Some people watch the Super Bowl for the game. Others watch for the commercials.

The average price of a 30-second spot during this year’s game between the Patriots and the Philadelphia Eagles costs about $5 million, according to SI reporter Richard Deitsch.

A Groupon ad starring actress and comedienne Tiffany Haddish already has garnered 4 million views on YouTube.

Coca Cola’s 1979’s "Mean Joe Greene," and Budweiser’s “Lost Dog” in 2015 are among the most watched ads of all time.
