It’s official. Commercial time for Super Bowl 2012 has sold out.

MarketWatch reports that commercial time for the Super Bowl sold out last fall. So, what can we expect from Super Bowl 2012 commercials? Well, Pepsi, “The Voice” and Lonely Island to name a few.

Entertainment Weekly reports that Pepsi has bought two 30-second spots, one of which will feature “X-Factor” winner Melanie Amaro. Speaking of reality shows, “The Voice” will have  60-second spot featuring judges Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green, Blake Shelton and Adam Levine.

In the junk food arena, M&Ms will be featured in a Super Bowl spot for the first time since 1998 and The Lonely Island will star in a 30-second spot for Doritos.

Although most Super Bowl commercials run an average of 30 seconds, it’s expected that many may go over the 30-second mark. Many sponsors have bought enough air time to run commercials longer than the standard 30 seconds.
