Morgan Freeman and Peter Dinklage rapping for Mountain Dew and Doritos.
Well, there’s no reason to watch the Super Bowl now.
I just spent 30 minutes previewing this year’s Super Bowl commercials, although Freeman sounded a lot like Missy Elliott.
At least two commercials feature beer companies, namely Budweiser and Stella Artois, highlighting their ability to provide water for people in disaster-stricken countries. Very touching.
James Cromwell does a controversial PETA ad, playing a priest who won’t absolve the guy who lies about the horrible way animals are slaughtered. I keep hearing Cromwell in the movie “Babe” saying, “That’ll do, Pig. That’ll do.”
An M&M morphs into Danny DeVito. Peyton Manning, of course, has to be in a Super Bowl commercial. He’s hawking family trips to amusement parks.
We’ll have the annual discussions about Canadian networks not showing the American commercials during Super Bowl. Canadian networks need to make money, too. They’re not collecting $5 million for a 30-second spot.
And, oh yeah, the Eagles play the Patriots on Sunday.
