No one can say Steve Harvey can’t laugh at his own mistakes. In one of the funniest commercials to air during Super Bowl 50 on Feb. 7, Steve mocked at his infamous Miss Universe flub in a T-Mobile spot that proves that, for once, Steve wasn’t the one who goofed up! Click to watch.
Steve Harvey, 59, may finally be over his notorious Miss Universe fiasco, thanks to T-Mobile and Super Bowl 50. The Family Feud host got a little of redemption for mistaking naming Miss Colombia Ariadna Gutiérrez, 22, as the winner while throwing some shade at Verizon.
“Whoa, whoa, listen — folks,” Steve says at the start of the ad that aired during the Super Bowl on Feb. 7. The ad looks very similar to a Verizon commercial with colorful balls, but Steve has to point out another mistake. Uh-oh. “I have to apologize – again,” Steve says, before telling in the audience that Verizon was using outdated information to make itself look good!
“I’m not taking responsibility on this on,” Steve says, as he’s so happy that he’s almost crying. “Nuh-uh. It’s Verizon that got it wrong! Yes! Not me!” The commercial then tags itself #Ballogize, while Steve walks off, completely ecstatic that he’s totally off the hook. Of course, Steve has been on an apology tour for screwing up at Miss Universe by naming Miss Colombia as the winner. Thankfully, she found it in her heart to forgive him!
This isn’t the only ad that T-Mobile ran during Super Bowl 50. Drake, 29, also poked fun at himself and his often-mocked “Hotline Bling” video. Drizzy showed he had a sense of humor, as he agreed that adding a line about cellphone upgrades was genius. “These changes don’t ruin the song at all,” he said, and just smiled like he had dropped another diss track on Meek Mill, 28.

Super Bowl 50 has been great for hilarious commercials. In addition to the unlikely bromance between The Incredible Hulk and Ant-Man in a Coca-Cola spot, there’s also the bizarre humor of the PuppyBabyMonkey in Mountain Dew’s commercial. Plus, Toyota totally mocked the geeky reputation of Prius drivers by amping up the attitude. Now, Prius drivers are “Heck on wheels!” Stand back! Of course, if a Prius driver ever needs to call for a tow-truck, they can rely on T-Mobile service. Thanks, Steve!
