In parodying iconic commercials from Super Bowls past, Kung Fu Panda characters star in a priceless ad for Wix.com to fill the website’s big game spot come Super Bowl Sunday. Watch as Po the Panda transforms into the Old Spice man and more without missing a comical beat!
This is just too creative! Wix.com just one upped every Super Bowl 50 commercial out there by creating an ad that contains multiple ads WITHIN it — sound trippy? It’s actually genius and totally hilarious! In the 34-second bit, the animated cast of Kung Fu Panda 3 recreates some of the most memorable half-time commercials of all time, completely nailing each one. By doing so they’ve created an iconic campaign of their own — watch the brilliant creation here!
In the commerical, created by DreamWorks Animation and Wix.com, Po the panda, Master Shifu, and friends from Kung Fu Panda 3, brainstorm ways to promote Mr. Ping’s Noodle shop and bring more business into the restaurant. It’s Po’s bright idea to create a commercial, which he then begins daydreaming about using inspiration from some of the greats such as Carl’s Jr. “All Natural” bit, Old Spice’s “The Man Your Man Could Smell Like” campaign (which despite common misconception, didn’t even air during the Super Bowl), and Budweiser’s “Frogs” ad.
But in the end Po realizes that while a commercial is great, “It all starts and ends with a stunning website from Wix.com.” Pretty catchy, huh? This ad is already generating buzz and it’s definitely going to be a hit during the big game! After all, everyone loves a good throwback, and when it’s performed by a panda voiced by Jack Black? Even better!
The Kung Fu Panda klan isn’t the only animated gang getting in on the Super Bowl action this year either — in an epic commercial celebrating their 20-year anniversary, the animated characters of Pokemon make a memorable statement as well! And let’s not forget another favorite movie-related Super Bowl ad this year — one featuring a very — ahem — hangry Marilyn Monroe on the set of her iconic film, The Seven Year Itch. The Snickers spot proves that no, you are definitely not you when you’re hungry.
Wix’s commercial is a part of their #StartStunning campaign and will air in the third-quarter of the game, which takes place on Feb. 7. We can’t wait to watch it live!
What do you think of this creative commerical, HollywoodLifers? Are you excited to see it play during the Super Bowl?
