Mr. Peanut shows off some nutty driving skills in Planters' first Super Bowl ad since 2008.
In "Crunch Time," Mr. Peanut takes the wheel of the Planters Nutmobile to hastily get to Alex Rodriguez's "nut-mergency." Thanks to Mr. Peanut's speedy and somewhat reckless driving, A-Rod is spared from the fate of having to snack on kale chips, as a can of deluxe mixed nuts flies onto the table.
While Planters already announced the appearance of retired baseball player Rodriguez, the ad also features a cameo by Charlie Sheen. After Mr. Peanut does some particularly daring driving, Sheen remarks "and people think I'm nuts." The soundtrack for Mr. Peanut's epic ride is Motley Crue's "Kickstart My Heart," with a brief pause for "Ave Maria."
