Mayonnaise is a choice. It’s definitely one of those condiments that you either love or hate. Now, while there are a lot of things that have the same consistency, we have to admit (and by we, I mean me) we don’t have the worst aversion to mayo.
But that is only if it is Hellmans or Kewpie (if you haven’t tried Kewpie, you should). No this isn’t an ad for mayo, it’s us talking about the Hellman’s Super Bowl commercial. Football may not be this writers thing, but commercials, well I love them.
This years Hellman’s commercial features Jon Hamm, Brie Larson, and well, Pete Davidson. Now, you can’t hate on Pete Davidson (well, you can, but you would be wrong) because like he’s everywhere. He did his time – he got the tattoos, had them removed, dated a Kardashian. The man has earned his celebrity infamy.
Now, I don’t really related food to a human being, but I understand being hungry. What I can respect about this commercial is that Brie is the one that figures out why they are in the fridge with a jar of mayonnaise. Some may ask what kind of kinky shit could transpire from this, but I think that most of us old AF (or young) people, were told to put mayonnaise in your hair and it would be all luscious.
This is not that commercial and mayonnaise in our hair only ever stunk and made us breakout. Don’t try it.
Where as we do love Brie, we’re meh on Jon Hamm in the commercial (he’s not my cup of tea, though he was hot in Top Gun: Maverick), I can’t think of anyone else that would make the whole sandwich vibe work. Also, I don’t like brie on a sandwich, but you know that’s a lot of lactose.
And lactose is a bitch.
We get why being at a party with Brie and Jon would inspire a good sandwich, but like also – what about good old roast beef.
The commercial isn’t about meat though (in my opinion) or even a panini. It’s about the greatness of Pete Davidson and his luscious lips. Pete Davidson taking a bite out of me, well smother me in Hellman’s, toast me and use me. There is an allure when in comes to Pete Davidson, one that we can’t explain.
It’s nice to see that Brie Larsen and Jon Hamm are willing to be supporting characters to Pete and the Hellmans (which honestly, if you aren’t using in your potato salad, you’re making bad choices).
Now, off to make ourselves a sandwich.
