With Super Bowl XLVIII now just a matter of days away, the excitement and sheer anticipation is building ahead of the Denver Broncos' showdown against the Seattle Seahawks at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey.

As part of the build-up to the NFL's annual showpiece, it is not just the players and fans of the respective teams that appear to be going head-to-head for early bragging rights. Rather, the team's mascots are also getting in on the act.

Yes Miles, the Broncos' mascot and Blitz, his Seahawks counterpart, have been pitted against one another in amusing fashion in an advert from the fine folks at ESPN in their latest 'This is Sportscenter' series.

In said advert, the two create n awkward and uncomfortable tense silence after walking into the same lift before the two start to squabble. The whole things ends with Miles being chased out of the shot by an angry Blitz...

Watch footage of the hilarious advert above - with thanks to Bleacher Report for bringing it to our attention.
