CBS knows that and charges reportedly a record-breaking $5 million for a 30 second ad slot. Each year there is a discussion if a Super Bowl ad is worth the cost.
There have been many success stories, but also big failures. Recently smaller companies and startups have taken the risk of buying a Super Bowl ad and had great success with them.
