Stephen Colbert is a man who can pretty much make people laugh at will: a well-turned phrase, a winning smile, or even a single raised eyebrow will do it. So it came as no surprise to us that the teaser for his first-ever Super Bowl commercial is pretty excellent.
And indeed Colbert hardly does anything; he just sits there in a chair talking to the camera, holding up a bowl of (wonderful) pistachios, and then apparently talking to an eagle that’s lurking off screen. We can’t be sure if this teaser tells us anything about the upcoming ad other than comedy is definitely afoot. And that is more than enough for us, thank you.
Remember late last year when there were rumors that Miley Cyrus would be featured in this year’s Wonderful Pistachios Super Bowl commercial? We’re so glad it worked out this way instead.
