There are no spoilers here.

But if you want to get an idea of which 2013 Super Bowl commercials are going to steal the show, come on in.

Leaking Super Bowl ads prior to Super Sunday has certainly become a common practice of the business world, and it’s not going to change any time soon. We live in a society of instant gratification, and its no surprise we’d rather watch them now than wait in anticipation for two weeks.

As a result, though, some of the excitement of these ad spots has been taken out of the equation.

Luckily, some companies are abstaining from disclosing their full ads prior to their original Super Bowl airing.

Let’s take a look at some commercials that will be worth the wait until Feb. 3.


Anything Volkswagen Does

German engineering has also found a way into American hearts with advertising. All it took were consecutive hits with a Star Wars theme to do it.

Could another Star Wars reference be in order this year? The company seems to be keeping quiet about its intentions this year, but we’re sure they have something big planned in order to deliver on their big reputation on Super Sunday.


Budweiser Black Crown Debut

Budweiser has pulled out the big guns in the past when advertising for its new products. And why not? Beer is a staple of American football culture and it should be right there at the forefront of the season’s biggest game.

But how are they going to debut Black Crown, the company’s newest amber beer?

The new six percent alcohol beer will get two 30-second spots dubbed “Coronation” and “Celebration.”


Kate Upton Washes the New Mercedes-Benz CLA

Kate Upton will reportedly wash the newest Mercedes-Benz CLA for nearly two minutes, in slow motion, for the company’s Super Bowl add.

There’s a twist, though.

Still, there isn’t a twist big enough that can make the massive male audience disappointed after getting to enjoy ogling Upton for a minute or two.

The ad has already been posted on YouTube, in its entirety, by Mercedes-Benz. We trust you’ll do the right thing and wait until Super Bowl Sunday.
