Today's Sports Clip: Cutest Super Bowl commercial ever?

Budweiser's Super Bowl commercial debuted on the "Today" show on Wednesday and it's already getting rave reviews.

It tells the story of a newly-adopted puppy that keeps running away to see its best friend, which happens to be a Clydesdale at a nearby farm.

The spot would probably win the award for cutest commercial if such an award existed. Budweiser's 2013 Super Bowl commercial, as seen at the bottom of the page, was just as emotional. It told the story of a man who reunited with a Clydesdale three years after not seeing each other.

The Broncos and Seahawks will play on Sunday and the game is expected to set a Super Bowl viewership record. According to Forbes, the big game should break the 2012 Super Bowl television audience record of 111.3 million viewers.

The cost of a 30-second commercial is estimated to be $4 million, according to USA Today.

The Super Bowl Commercials website has previews of a bunch of upcoming Super Bowl ads.
