Now, most marketers are focused on the Super Bowl commercials themselves. But there’s a new category — and a new opportunity — worth checking out.

So, in no particular order, check out the two contenders — and let me know your favorite pre-game video in the comments area below.

First up is one of the featured videos, An Extremely Brief History of Superbowl Commercials. “When people watch a television program just so they can see the ads, you’ve reached a very weird place in culture that is worth studying.”

Next up is another featured video worth your consideration: Random Football Facts! The background music for this video was made by an awesome band called “Mars Argo”.

Feel free to nominate other pre-game Super Bowl videos. The winner gets bupkis. But, hey, this beats watching television until the game starts.
