The game day commercial drives the car company's “nearly double” message home
If they wanted over-the-top, Ford Motor Company couldn't have cast a better star than James Franco for its Super Bowl commercial.
If you're at all familiar with Franco's work, then you know that he doesn't do anything ordinary.
In the game day spot, the busiest man in Hollywood found time to one-up “Daily Show” correspondent Rob Riggle in the 90-second “Nearly Double” commercial for the Ford Fusion Hybrid.
Franco recreates Riggle's commercial, but with the flair one would expect from the star. His version includes a tiger, pyrotechnics, choreographed dancers and hanging out of window to blow a dandelion.
Watch the commercial above.
