Through the years, Super Bowl commercials have certainly included unique combinations of celebrities. It appears that tradition will continue this year with Kyle Busch appearing with Martha Stewart in one advertisement.
What could that combo be advertising?
The answer is Scotts MiracleGro, according to an article by PopCulture.com. Specifically, Kyle Busch and Martha Stewart will be promoting the company’s Dream Lawn and Garden Sweepstakes. Busch will appear on a very unique lawnmower that bears his name. Stewart will reportedly say that consumers can have a very nice garden “like mine, you know, just not better than mine.”
Kyle Busch and Martha Stewart aren’t the only celebrities appearing in this Super Bowl commercial. John Travolta will appear alongside his daughter, Ella Travolta. Also appearing in the Scott’s MiracleGro commercial will be actors Carl Weathers and Leslie David Baker. Comedian Matt Braunger and Peloton’s Emma Lovewell also appear.
According to the article, the celebrities filmed each of their parts alone with a limited group of people due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. They each had to have their temperature taken and had to take COVID-19 tests that provided quick results.
You can check out a few screenshots from the upcoming commercial below. It is scheduled to air on television during the second quarter of Super Bowl LV on Sunday, Feb. 7. Performing the National Anthem the annual sporting event will be Eric Church and Jazmine Sullivan.
Dolly Parton Recreating ‘9 to 5’ for Super Bowl Ad
Kyle Busch, Martha Stewart, and John Travolta aren’t the only celebrities getting in on the Super Bowl commercial action. Also taking part in the festivities is country music legend Dolly Parton.
She has reportedly updated her hit song “9 to 5” and changed it to “5 to 9” for a commercial advertising Squarespace. The company offers website building and e-commerce.
“All the nine-to-five people, all of them can’t even go work their nine-to-five jobs now, so a lot of people are working from home,” Parton said in a recent interview.
“They’re building their own businesses online and even the ones that are still working nine-to-five, they still (build their own business) anyway. I thought it was a genius idea for Squarespace.”
The company reportedly approached the country music legend about reworking “9 to 5” into “5 to 9” for the Super Bowl commercial. Dolly Parton is also joining forces with Squarespace to promote her new perfume line.
“That is actually my side hustle,” Parton said of her new venture. “Squarespace has built a website for that so it’s a win-win for everybody.”
The perfume line is scheduled to be available during the spring of 2021.
