Super Bowl XLVII: A look at the commercials
In a game that went down to the wire and included a coaching duel between brothers John and Jim Harbaugh and a 35-minute blackout, the Baltimore Ravens beat the San Francisco 49ers 34-31 Sunday night.

In between the drama on the field, the Super Bowl ads still captured fans' heartstrings and screens -- with more than 22 million tweets about the game, not even including mentions of the ads.

The Special Report below looks at the ads, the spend and the reactions. Feel free to share this report with your colleagues and encourage them to sign up for the free daily edition of AAF SmartBrief.
