It's the first weekend in February already, which means it's Super Bowl weekend and many brands have already released their Super Bowl commercials for us to watch. A deluge came in after an initial trickle last week, and what we're seeing is almost every brand wants to be associated with fun and coveted lifestyles. But we don't have just Super Bowl ads to offer here. This is Fun Video Friday, so we have all sorts of genres here: music videos, animation, and another video from AsapSCIENCE explaining how your brain works.
