Dr. Evil has been retired since 2002, but he’s coming back for the Super Bowl. While there’s no indication of exactly why the evil genius is back, there’s no denying that laugh when you hear it. The Mike Myers character popped up on the General Motors Instagram page in a video that’s as ominous as the master mind himself.
The video shows a black screen with white writing and the classic “Austin Powers” music behind it. “His name is legendary. His plans are diabolical. He rules not with an iron fist, but an iron pinkie,” the video reads. “Evil is back for good.” What that means, who knows, but it is fun to see the character come back to the big screen. Err, little screen? Either way, super fun.
Seeing as this ad is from General Motors, it’s pretty definite that a car commercial is coming. While there’s no telling which car the commercial is for, it will definitely be entertaining with this character involved.
