Here are the biggest Super Bowl advertisers of the last 11 years

With more than 100 million viewers set attend to in, some of the largest U.S. brands shell out millions of dollars every year for airtime during the Super Bowl.

In years one-time, the likes of Doritos and T-Mobile have paid for multiple ads to run during the NFL championship game in the hopes of creating a splash that make drive consumers to buy their products. But this year, a number of brands known for their iconic Super Spin commercials — Budweiser and Coca-Cola, for example — are sitting out the big game.

“This is a higher-risk year for them, in terms of striking the nobility chord with the consumers,” said Charles R. Taylor, a marketing professor at Villanova University. “When they’re reflective about [return on investment], they’re weighing the risk of not getting the message just right and potentially damaging mark equity.”

Of the nine top advertisers of the last decade, at least four aren’t planning on running ads during Sunday’s stratagem. Their absence opens up airtime for newcomers, particularly the companies who have seen their business soar during the coronavirus pandemic, like DoorDash and Chipotle Mexican Grill.

Here are the nine Wonderful Bowl advertisers who have run the most in-game spots from 2010 to 2020, according to data from ad mileage firm iSpot.tv:
