TV - Top 5 Superbowl LIV Adverts


Apparently there was a programme on TV about an owl last weekend. A superb owl. However, Susan Omand ignored that and... watched the adverts instead??...

1. Walmart

Well, I guess, if you're going to spend money on a Superbowl advert, you've got to go big or go home....
