In the opening scene of Greenlight’s Super Bowl LVI commercial, Ty Burrell declares, “I make good money decisions.” Unfortunately, though, he goes on to buy a yacht — even though he swears he gets seasick. Then, as the ad continues, Burrell makes a series of very questionable financial decisions, including a dinosaur skeleton, amour suit, hot air balloon, jetpack, and even a robotic replica of himself. The Super Bowl commercial already has a fan base, according to Hollywood Life and Variety.
Of course, most people can relate. Each day we’re bombarded with opportunities to buy products- — everything from low-cost apps to investment-level purchases like cars and homes. Greenlight uses Ty Burrell’s comedic skills to create an exaggerated and wildly memorable commercial showing kids how easy it is to buy all the cool stuff and the downfall — going broke.
Who knows, maybe Ty Burrell can return that majestic Pegasys he bought. It seems logical that the wizard has a flexible return policy, right? But, on second thought, perhaps he should stick with Greenlight’s advice.
