YouTube's Ad Blitz delivers Super Bowl commericials ahead of the Super Bowl.

We don’t yet know which teams will go head to head in New Jersey on Super Bowl Sunday yet, but we already know which commercials we can look forward to.

YouTube announced Thursday that fans will be able to watch some of this year’s ads online through its Ad Blitz page before they even air on TV Feb. 2.

So far, Ad Blitz is offering teasers for seven different Super Bowl commercials (with plans to release more as it gets closer), game analysis before kickoff, content from, and the ability to vote for your favorite commercials after the game is over.

Super Bowl commercials are no longer a one or two day affair, and major advertisers have started to release their commercials weeks in advance in order to “win the conversation” among viewers.”

And YouTube has even acknowledged that viewers couldn’t get enough of the commercials.

“It’s clear how much you love watching and sharing these commercials on YouTube,” YouTube wrote in a blog post. “In 2013, you watched Big Game ads more than 265M times for over 3.2M hours—that’s the equivalent of watching 800,000 Big Game broadcasts!”
