Nice to see a company that’s all about the outdoors advertising during the Super Bowl! Maybe Americans are ready to put the phone down and hit the trail now and then? The Marmot Super Bowl 50 commercial will introduce this outdoor gear brand to many people for the first time, and we wish them the very best success.

Now let’s talk not about the brand Marmot or the Super Bowl commercial… but about ACTUAL marmots. If you’ll allow a bit of digression and personal opinion here, marmots are cute animals, sure, but they are actually annoying as hell. Ask anyone who has ever made camp above the treeline on various North American mountains; these little bastards do their best to get into your tent and get your food!
