Is it Super Bowl time already? Well, not quite. The big game kicks off on Sunday, February 5, but as you know it’s also a big day for reveals, like this topped up list of movie trailers that were released last year.
And while we still have a few weeks to go, we’re starting to feel that football buzz, with early ads already rolling out.
So what’s this about Transporter star Jason Statham heading to the mega NFL event this year? He won’t be the half-time act or anything like that (though that is a fun mental picture). But he is contributing to the festive day with an advertisement for Wix.com, starring opposite Wonder Woman‘s Gal Gadot.
In the below we see a chef working on his website, unaware a full-fledged brawl has broken out in the front of the restaurant:
This ad feels like a short film, leaving us wanting more. Alas, that’s not the case, but we can look forward to seeing more of Statham in this year’s Fast & Furious 8 (April 17) and in The Expendables 4, premiering in 2018.
This isn’t the first time we’ve seen a British face in an American ad, as we examined in this earlier Anglo post: 10 American Commercials Starring British Faces and Voices.
