Football is only part of the story on Super Bowl Sunday, when even the sports-averse tune in for the half-time show – and, yes, the commercials. This year, in advance of the Patriots and the Eagles’ face-off, brands have taken a cue from the Trump White House and leaked their best stuff for public consumption. From spots featuring celebrities like Cardi B and Matt Damon to ones that might make you cry, here are some of the most notable commercials to preview before the game.

Michelob Ultra, “The Perfect Fit”

Chris Pratt stars in this meta-Michelob commercial that showcases the movie star getting ready to star in, well, an advertisement for Michelob. While it’s full of funny moments, the sexiest highlight is no doubt a glimpse of Pratt’s buff body sans shirt. Cheers to that.

Febreze, “The Only Man Whose Bleep Don’t Stink”

This one is odd as bleep. From air freshener company Febreze comes this spot where “Bleep don’t stink” is repeated over and over. It’s funny at first, and then it isn’t, and then it is again… What the bleep?
