2012 Super Bowl Auto Ad Watch: All The Car Commercials

Yeah, so, we just heard there's an actual football game that goes on in between all of those car commercials. Who knew? Our priority's always been in the right place — the car ads.

That's because today's not about Gronk's ankle, Eli besting his big brother's legacy, or Brady's dreamy face. No, it's about cars, beer and talking babies. But mostly about cars.

For now, take a look at what ads have already hit the web ahead of the big game — straight from our Super Bowl Ad Watch tag page — and then come back here throughout Super Bowl 46 tonight to see any of the auto-themed commercials — as soon as they've aired. It's like a car ad cheat sheet for the night.
