However, I’m just as sure that many of you are like me: advertising nerds that only watch the Super Bowl for the commercials, which are the best of the year. This year, Snickers is doing the first ever live commercial at the Super Bowl, starring Adam Driver and, according to the above trailer, “other LESS famous actors.” IndieWire has a full series of preview ads like this featuring stunt horses, dead cowboys, and an Adam Driver cardboard cutout. Because he doesn’t rehearse. He just shows up and delivers.
