The candy brand airs its first Big Game commercial on Feb. 1.

Who doesn't want to frolic in a hot tub filled with candy? Check out this sneak-peek of a Super Bowl spot from Skittles.

The ad opens with a message to viewers: 

Skittles is so excited about our first-ever Super Bowl ad that we started tailgating in Arizona...four weeks early. 

Staged in the vacant University of Phoenix Stadium parking lot, there's a wild Skittles-filled tailgate party happening. The spot features football great Kurt Warner, the NFL quarterback who played with the Saint Louis Rams, New York Giants and Arizona Cardinals. The teaser tag says "Super Bowl XLIX is about to get awesomer."

Do you suddenly want some rainbow flavored candy? Skittles hopes so!  With over 8,000 views on YouTube after just being posted for a few hours, Skittles sales may skyrocket in 2015.
