Super Bowl ads: First look! And 2 that were banned

Can't wait for Super Bowl Sunday? Well, football fans are pretty much out of luck. Kickoff is at 6:30 p.m. and that's that.

But those who are just looking for the ads are in business, since a bunch of them have already been released. And some have also been banned -- we've got a few of those, too. So let's watch, point, laugh, shake our heads, judge and begin to prepare our Best Super Bowl Ad lists for Monday morning.

Also, come right back here Sunday evening for our live blog of the Super Bowl commercials, with real-time reactions and discussion of the night's other big event.

Toyota, "Wish Granted"

Wheat Thins, "Night Vision"

Audi, "Prom"

Budwesier, "Brotherhood"

Mercedes, "(Don't know title, so let's just call it 'The Kate Upton wet car one')"

Volkswagen, "Get Happy"

Skechers, 'Man vs. Cheetah' teaser

E*Trade, "Fat Stack of Cash"

AXE, "Apollo Space Academy"

And now, here are two ads that you won't be seeing during the Super Bowl because they were rejected by CBS. The first one, because it got a little too close to poking fun at Pepsi, a major NFL sponsor. This second one was banned because, well, it's for a porn site. Though the ad just features an older couple on a bench and is 100% safe to view. Unsure if this makes people more or less likely to click.

SodaStream, rejected commercial
