Super Bowl XLV commecial spots are sold out

The commercial slots for Super Bowl XLV next February have all been sold, less than a year after Super bowl XLIV had openings until Feb. 1, according to Broadcasting & Cable.

Fox was seeking between $2.8 million and $3 million for 30-second spots in the telecast of the Feb. 6, 2011 game, media buyers told Advertising Age. CBS, which had last February's game, sought between $2.5 million and $3 million for its spots.

The ad lineup includes: General Motors, Pepsi, Anheuser-Busch InBev,, E-Trade,, Coca-Cola, Bridgestone, Volkswagen, PepsiCo's Frito-Lay (Doritos!).

"Glee" gets the coveted post-Super Bowl spot, by the way.
