Thank you internet. I stumbled across this teaser for a commercial that is set to air during the Superbowl on Sunday.
Then I found this…I swear I don’t even have to go looking for them. They just show up…places.
Without even seeing any others, this is officially my favorite Superbowl commercial this year…maybe ever. Tom Hiddleston, Mark Strong and Ben Kingsley talk about why all the villains are British. Now, there have been some great Superbowl commercials, but none of them had Tom Hiddleston. (I think I must be focused on him because I saw the broadcast of Coriolanus last night…yeah, that’s it…because of Shakespeare.) Here’s what I like about it (other than Tom Hiddleston). The focus on villains taps into that part of us that really wants to be a bad girl/guy. You know that rebellious part that never really grows up. “It’s good to be bad.”
Then there’s the kicker at the very end, “How alive are you?” Nicely done, Jaguar. Nicely done.
‘Til next time,
P.S. Don’t worry, I’ll tell you all about Coriolanus. Tomorrow at the latest, I promise.
P.P.S. Sneak preview….Coriolanus was AWESOME!!!
