Mr. Peanut Dies In The Super Bowl Commercial For Planters

The advertising and social media worlds are abuzz about the death of an iconic mascot, Mr. Peanut. In Planters’ Big Game ad released today, Mr. Peanut is travelling in the NUTmobile with his buddies Wesley Snipes and Matt Walsh. Cutting Crew’s “(I Just) Died In Your Arms” is playing, and that’s what you call foreshadowing, folks. Suddenly, they have to swerve to avoid an armadillo, and they’re left clinging along to a branch above a cliff. They’re too heavy, and Mr. Peanut takes the noble fall despite his friends’ protests to save them both. Maybe he’ll be alright…well, maybe not. Apparently Mr. Peanut’s funeral will air during the 3rd quarter of the Super Bowl. So RIP Mr. Peanut. 1916-2020. Will he be dead forever? Only time will tell.
