For most people, appearing in a commercial that airs during the Super Bowl is the highlight of their careers, the top of the mountain, the big… um… deal. For Korean rap-dance-pop super-mega-global star sensation Psy, it’s almost a demotion.
His Gangam Style YouTube video has been viewed more than 1.1 BILLION times, setting a record unlikely to be beaten any time soon. If ever. Thus while the approximately 112 million viewers of Super Bowl XLVII certainly means a lot of eyes on Psy’s commercial, which features him in the debut spot for the Wonderful Pistachios brand (and, in all fairness, those are some tasty nuts), it’s like a walk in the park for the flashy dressing, flashy dancing sudden pop icon.
