Some BTS fans think the commercial could air during the Super Bowl

When Samsung first teased that BTS were part of a new announcement with the company, some fans of BTS speculated that Samsung could drop a Super Bowl commercial with the band.

“Calling it now. Samsung Super Bowl ad with snippet of new track,” one fan guessed on Reddit.

After the commercial dropped on Feb. 9, some fans of the band are hopeful that the commercial will receive airtime during the 2022 Super Bowl broadcast on Feb. 13.

“… all the super bowl ads typically get released early in this day in age so I believe the one we saw is the one that will air,” one Reddit user wrote.

“I’m so excited about this!!! This is probably the most expensive and sought after ad space and my man Yoongi just casually has an ad with his production highlighted. Not to mention the boys themselves,” one fan wrote on Reddit.

“ahh so exciting! I was really thinking that the whole samsung release was just in time for the Super Bowl is no coincidence,” wrote a Reddit user.
