To millions of people, half the fun of watching the Super Bowl is the commercials! Millions of dollars are spent by companies to promote their product during this great sporting event. They spare no cost to make their commercials the most memorable. 

Sixty nine commercials were aired during the Super Bowl. Each 30 second ad cost $2 million. Of the 69 commercials, 17 were captioned for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing. That means that 52 commercials were not accessible to millions of people around the world. After spending millions to produce and air their ads, 52 companies chose not to spend $200 more to caption them. 

Contact the following companies and let them know your concerns. If they did caption, please thank them.
