Check out the ultra-expensive Super Bowl ads for 2017

AN avocado hypnotist, a stranded Melissa McCarthy and Oscar-winning directors - these are among the ads set to screen during the Super Bowl.

The TV commercials that air during the NFL broadcast rival (well, almost) what happens on the field.

The cost alone is enough to rival a top footballer's salary. An ad that airs during the Super Bowl costs US$5 million for 30-seconds, according to the New York Times.

Snickers, Mercedes-Benz, Kia, Heinz and Australian booze brand Yellow Tail Wines have forked out serious cash to advertise during the Super Bowl on Monday (Australian time).

Here are some of the highlights.
