Super Bowl is the 60th xkcd comic.
The Super Bowl, the championship game of the National Football League in the United States, is known for the high-profile advertisements that air during its television broadcasts in the U.S. This advertising space is extremely expensive for companies, which in turn all but promises spectacular ads, that are often innovative and humorous. Because of this, the ads themselves are often highly anticipated and generate a lot of buzz.
"The Super Bowl is actually an elaborate ruse, concocted by a shadowy group in the mid sixties for this purpose. The 'watch it for the ads' addition was a master stroke."
