NEW YORK (AP) — The big day for marketers has arrived: The Super Bowl is advertising’s biggest, glitziest stage.

Big name advertisers from Netflix to Google paid as much as $7 million for a 30-second spot during the game, seeking to capture the attention of the roughly 100 million viewers who tune in each year.

To get the most out of those millions, many advertisers released their ads days ahead of the big game to maximize publicity. John Travolta and “Scrubs” stars Donald Faison and Zach Braff sing a T-Mobile themed version of “Summer Nights” from “Grease,” Adam Driver creates multiple versions of himself for Squarespace, and Alicia Silverstone reprises her “Clueless” character for the online shopping site Rakuten.
