Happy Super Bowl Sunday and Groundhog Day!

Super Bowl Sunday and Groundhog Day bring a fun commercial featuring Bill Murray.

Super Bowl Sunday is upon us! The culmination of the 2019 season brings all the pageantry and excitement on the biggest stage of the year. We’ll have plenty to keep us busy, and that doesn’t even begin to count the commercials we’ll be watching. We’ll see a vast assortment of ads for products and people, with a few that leave us scratching our heads.

Today also happens to be Groundhog Day. Punxsutawney Phil did not see his shadow Sunday morning, which is supposed to predict that we’ll have an early spring. Whether or not you buy into that, this year’s event brought with it a Jeep commercial that let us relive some of the great moments from the classic movie Groundhog Day.

Bill Murray makes his return in a recreation of the movie, with him hopping in a keep for his theft of the groundhog. It’s some silly fun, and while it is all about promoting a vehicle, it’s still a chance to get a good laugh in. My personal favorite scene in the commercial is when he is playing whack-a-mole and the groundhog looks on in disgust.
