The Super Bowl is popular for two reasons. The first is the game itself, and the second is all of the awesome commercials.

The Seattle Seahawks will be taking on the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl XLVIII, with Peyton Manning looking to cement his status as the greatest quarterback ever. On the other side, players like Russell Wilson, Marshawn Lynch and Richard Sherman will be looking to begin a dynasty in Seattle.

But while the game is being played at MetLife Stadium, millions of fans will be watching the commercials as well as the matchup, so let's take a look at some of the latest teasers.


Don Cheadle Has a Llama

Don't question it; just let it happen.

In this commercial for Bud Light, Don Cheadle is waiting for an elevator with a llama, although it could be an alpaca. To be completely honest, I have no clue what the difference is between those two animals. They could have put an alpaca next to Mr. Cheadle, and I bet few people would have noticed.

The more confusing part for me is that someone was actually waiting in an elevator and expecting to see Don Cheadle with a llama. This is obviously supposed to be a setup for the real Super Bowl ad, but I want answers.

We'll just have to wait and see what the "Donnie Llama" has in store for us, but Bud Light is making sure everyone is #UpForWhatever.


Yellow Gets Kidnapped

Seriously, this commercial is dark.

It starts out innocent enough, with Yellow the M&M making a home video for something. He might have been trying to dance, or he might have been trying to work on his twerking skills. But judging from the headband and wristbands, it looks like Yellow was preparing for some form of Jazzercise.

The teaser takes a very dark turn when Yellow is suddenly knocked out with a tranquilizer and slowly dragged out of the shot. Then, a figure wearing black gloves puts a sign in front of the camera that says, "Find out what happens to Yellow 2/2/14."

I have no idea what's going to happen to Yellow, but I'm seriously fearing for his safety given the fact that someone tranquilized and kidnapped him.


Stephen Colbert, an Eagle and Pistachios

If Stephen Colbert is in a commercial, then you know it's going to be patriotic.

Wonderful Pistachios had a questionable Super Bowl ad last year involving Psy and his hit song "Gangnam Style," which seemed a little too outdated to be played during the game. But a commercial with Stephen Colbert from The Colbert Report might help turn things around.

Apparently, there might also be a bald eagle, as Colbert refers to one during the teaser. Considering Colbert is in it, I'm expecting as many patriotic things as possible. American flags, eagles, fireworks, fast foodpretty much the whole nine yards.

If this commercial is anything like his Ben and Jerry's ice cream, "Americone Dream," then it's probably going to be pretty good.
