Why is the Super Bowl such a cultural phenomenon?

The Super Bowl is one of the biggest nights in entertainment in America, and more recently in Australia as well. Every year, millions of people tune in to watch not only the game, but also some of the biggest names in music perform during the half-time show, as well as multi-million dollar advertisements. So why are Aussies starting to tune into the Super Bowl in droves, even more so than some of our biggest local events?

Hosts: Billi FitzSimons, Zara Seidler
