Although former University of Alabama and current Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa would probably prefer to be playing in the Super Bowl next weekend in Las Vegas, he will at least appear on the broadcast of the big game — in a hilarious star-studded commercial for Paramount Plus.

The new ad features the likes of Drew Barrymore, Patrick Stewart, Peppa Pig and more. You have to check this out.

Tua appears in Super Bowl ad with Barrymore, Stewart, Creed + more

The ad for the Paramount Plus streaming service has already gone viral even before its official airing. The gist of the ad is that Tagovailoa, Stewart, Barrymore, Jeff Probst and several animated characters (like Arnold from “Hey Arnold,” Peppa Pig, Sonic and more) are trying to get over Paramount Mountain, and in doing so, need the help of Tua’s strong throwing arm.

What ensues is a funny take on the characters in Paramount’s stable of animated characters and a cameo from the 90s-era grunge band Creed to add in some dramatic element (in an ironic fashion).

This Super Bowl ad is part of Paramount’s “Mountain of Entertainment” ad campaign that was also featured in last year’s 60-second Super Bowl ad “Stallone Face,” starring Sylvester Stallone.

Although we do not know how much Paramount spent securing the services of stars like Tua, Stewart or Barrymore, we do know that a 30-second Super Bowl ad costs around $7 million this year, according to ad industry insiders Campaign US. Hence, Paramount is spending big money for this campaign.
