Now here’s a mashup we would’ve never expected. Jeff Bridges reprised his character from “The Big Lebowski” as The Dude to share a drink with Sarah Jessica Parker, reprising her own iconic role as Carrie Bradshaw from “Sex and the City.”
And yes, it’s for a Super Bowl ad. A few of us got a bit too excited after Bridges teased a brief video of himself as The Dude, guessing there might be news of a new “Big Lebowski” reboot or sequel.
But did anyone guess Stella Artois? If so, the next round is on us.
In the commercial, both Carrie and El Duderino find their way into a bar, but instead of ordering their signature drinks, namely a Cosmo and a White Russian, they instead decide to share a Stella Artois, much to the surprise of everyone.
“Changing can do a little good. The Dude abides,” Bridges says to Carrie before Stella’s slogan appears on screen, “Change up the usual.”
Bridges is also joining Stella as part of their Pour It Forward campaign in partnership with Water.org, in which every bottle or pour of Stella in a bar contributes to one month of clean drinking water for someone in the developing world, with a purchase of a six-pack at a store translating to six months of clean water.
The Stella Artois ad will air on Feb. 3 during Super Bowl LIII between the New England Patriots and the L.A. Rams. Watch it above.
