Mr. Peanut returns to Super Bowl in new nutty adventure

Super Bowl LIV is just a little over two weeks away and brands are beginning to roll out what they have paid millions of dollars for. Kraft-Heinz’s Planters Peanuts is one of the brands who will be vying for millions of eyeballs. This year, Mr. Peanut returns with a story that will show fans just how far he will go to have his friends’ backs. The thirty second spot stars titular nut alongside longtime friend and VEEP star Matt Walsh and will air during the Super Bowl’s third quarter.

“I’m a huge fan of Planters snacks, and I’m thrilled to star alongside my pal Mr. Peanut,” said Walsh. “I’ve starred in some nutty scenarios in the past, but I can assure our fans they haven’t seen anything like our Super Bowl journey!”
