Every year at this time there’s a football game squeezed in between 4 hours of ads and musical performances with a few special moments for us geeks. This year we were treated to a new VW Darth Vader commerical that was a sequel to last year’s “Kid Vader” spot, but later in the show got something no one expected!
Charlie Brown, Snoopy, and the rest of the Peanuts gang have been spokestoons for Metlife for quite some time. But “Everyone,” the ad that debuted during last night’s Super Bowl, just did it one better, featuring not only them but a host of other cartoon favorites. He-Man, Voltron, Fat Albert, Mr. Magoo, Richie Rich, Yogi Bear, and Yosemite Sam, and a bunch of other classic animated stars joined the Peanuts characters for a crossover that *almost* rivals that of Who Framed Roger Rabbit.
Now if only they could all do a weekly TV series together!
Check out the “Everyone” ad — plus some behind-the-scenes videos — below:
