What. A. Game. Super Bowl 54 is underway and, perhaps more importantly, so are the ads. If you're looking for all of the big game's best car, truck, and SUV company ads all in one place, you've come to the right spot. Scroll down. Watch. Enjoy.

A survey of 20,264 Americans 18 years old and older nationwide has revealed that the country is less enthusiastic about the return of the Hummer than General Motors is. A lot less enthusiastic.

Piplsay conducted the survey following the brand announcement and corresponding Super Bowl commercial. Only 51 percent of those surveyed said that they had seen the commercial during the Big Game. That means that nearly half of those respondents either didn't see the ad or don't remember seeing it.

Of those that say they saw the commercial, 17 percent said it was "good" and another 17 percent described it as "awesome". Fourteen percent thought it "okay" and three percent said it was "not great".

While 49 percent of those that responded said that they were excited to see the new Hummer, 15 percent said that they weren't. A whopping 36 percent answered saying that they "don't care" about the vehicle.

The excitement is higher among millennials than baby boomers. Sixty-two percent of the younger set are excited about the Hummer while just 54 percent of boomers are.

Reactions to the next question were quite mixed. Pollsters asked, "GM has brought back the 'Hummer' name for its EV. Does that excited you?" Forty percent answered in the affirmative. Twenty-three percent said "no" and that they still "identify it as a gas guzzler". Thirty-seven percent answered "I don't care."

The split between respondents is about the same when asked if the Hummer EV will be a threat to the Tesla Cybertruck. Respondents answered: 40 percent "not sure", 35 percent "yes", and 25 percent "no".

A team of 150 people was use to shoot Porsche's Super Bowl commercial.

Porsche's Super Bowl commercial was half "The Italian Job", half security guard fantasy. As interesting as it was, the behind the scenes footage and stories are nearly just as much so.

The spot was filmed primarily in and around Porsche's headquarters in Zuffenhausen, Germany at the end of November 2019. Most of the 10 vehicles featured in the commercial are part of the Porsche Museum collection in the town including the new all-electric Porsche Taycan.

"We have a lot of experience preparing historic vehicles for all kinds of operations but driving a 917 through the centre of Stuttgart, at night, was a first even for us," explains Alexander Klein, Head of Vehicle Management and Heritage Experience at the Porsche Museum. "When we travelled to the location in the Black Forest the roads were covered in snow, and stayed that way until the evening before the shoot. Fortunately, we were prepared and had different tyre profiles and compounds with us, especially for the racing cars. We did not make any technical changes to the museum vehicles though."

Locations for the advertisement are easily identifiable to locals of the Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen area. The opening cuts of the commercial were filmed inside the museum. The cars zoom around the famous Porsche roundabout in Zuffenhausen and the route taken in the spot moves from Stuttgart, Heidelberg, and Heppenheim to the Schwarzenbachtalsperre dam in the northern Black Forest.

The driving was't left to amateurs. One of the drivers, Harald Müller, held the World Record for drifting, while Porsche factory driver Lars Kern was behind the wheel of the iconic 917 K.

Including the drivers, it took a team of 150 people to make the 2:31 extended cut of the commercial come to to life.

The director of the product was Wayne McClammy, who, at points during filming, was using up to four cameras at the same time and had a Cayenne fitted with a Russian Arm: a roof-mounted camera crane. Arial shots were completed by two drones, including one that has a top speed of 160 km per hour.

The Super Bowl does't have to be the last time you see the ad. Check out the extended cut here.
