This is not a comment on Sylvester Stallone’s acting. He’s Rocky. I can’t insult Rocky (well, I can and I probably will in some peoples eyes). Yet after watching Paramount+’s Big Game commercial, seeing his face chiseled on a mountain and then it sneezing and him flying through the air – I will never be able to un-think of thinking he was a booger flying out of a nose.
Granted it is his own nose, so there is that.
For Paramount+’s Big Game commercial, Sylvester Stallone and his daughters Sophia, Scarlet and Sistine set up camp on Paramount Mountain, along with some other familiar faces (Dora The Explorer, Captain Pike, Ensign Mariner, Lieutenant Dangle, and Beavis and Butt-Head). Can Sly make it to the top of Sylvester Stallone Face?
Paramount+ is a streamer that we love and yes, we get that this commercial is advertising, but we’re also fully aware that this is an effort to get in on the conversation of the nepo baby conversation. Only thing is that by these two seconds of his daughters speaking, I am going to go with they may be more talented than him.
So is it the child keeping the parent relevant because hey – Rocky is iconic, but we’ve all moved on to other things.
Creed III is out March 3rd, but this ridiculous commercial is out now.
