We’ve long been big fans of the Snickers commercials featuring WWE Superstars that come out around WrestleMania. The the latest one, featuring a VR-playing Miz, has it’s moments:
Accidentally punching somebody in the face is always funny, and Miz’s delivery of his catchphrase after a great pratfall is money, too.
But sorry, Snickers, you’ve been passed in the race for the “best use of wrestlers to sell stuff” race.
It’s not really a fair comparison, as Old Spice has basically taken over the already entertaining 24/7 title scene, repackaged NXT’s Rik Bugez as their lead character/pitchman, and started telling an ongoing story.
The follow-up to the series that started with a Fastlane spot is pretty flawless, though. I think it’s my favorite WWE comedy since Fashion Files...
“Ninja Referee!” The Night Panther sound effect. Drew Gulak keeping the light bulb swinging. R-Truth being R-Truth. The door gag.
Grab a Snickers and join me as I await the next installment in “The Prophecy of the Night Panther.”
