Sir Patrick Stewart Charges The Super Bowl Ad

In what appears to be one of the bravest and yet most hilarious Super Bowl ads ever made, Patrick Stewart, alongside Drew Barrymore, Arnold, Peppa Pig, and several others, are seen stranded on Paramount Mountain.

In the hopes of summiting the peak, NFL player Tua Tagovailoa attempts to throw a hook onto the summit. As the attempt fails, Stewart suggests “Throw the child” while pointing to Arnold from Hey Arnold! After much consideration, as Drew Barrymore claims that “It’s a stupid idea”, the group is convinced to throw Arnold in hopes of his head getting stuck like a hook. With the music band Creed performing a song, the team gets motivated and Sir Patrick Stewart removes his clothes to show an NFL jersey underneath.

Yelling “Pip pip hike!” Arnold slams against the rock very near the summit.  When the plan fails, Patrick Stewart remarks that only if they had someone pig-skinned as the camera cuts to Peppa Pig. The reel ends with Peppa Pig saying “Oh, dear”. It is by far, one of the best Super Bowl ads ever made.
