Molly Ringwald was happy to share her love for avocados, which has been there for a long time in a fun Super Bowl commercial debut.
She stated her intense love for avocados isn’t just a fantasy. It is long-standing and genuine. She also has a story to prove this love.
Some hours before she had the chance to star in a quirky 30-second spot for Avocados from Mexico, Ringwald stated she was with a friend in L.A and they were eating breakfast. They were having avocado toast and they had a long conversation of about 20 minutes about this fruit.
How Ringwald Got the Ad
She stated how she got on the plane and she looked at her email, there it was – an email asking her if she would star in a Super Bowl Ad for Avocados from Mexico. Ringwald recalled, it felt like the universe was telling her what she just wanted to hear, or it felt like it was a real game or something.
Ringwald is 51, she is popularly known for when she starred in movies like “The Breakfast Club,” “Sixteen Candles,” and “Pretty in Pink.” She also starred in “Riverdale” and the “Secret Life of the American Teenager.”
In the first Super Bowl ad she starred in, she acted as a pitchwoman in Mexico Shopping Network’s fictional avocados. There she stressed products like a baby carrier that was in the shape of an avocado or an avocado helmet. She stated she enjoyed the quirky tone of the ad. It approached the features of Avocados from Mexico and that has gone up to being advertised on Super Bowl.
She stated she liked the sound of things that are whimsical, surreal, and weird. She feels like promotions, especially Super Bowl ads, serve as a chance to do something unique.
This would be the sixth year that avocados from Mexico star in a Super Bowl ad. Previously, past spots have featured a reversed role featuring dogs with dogs serving as trainers and people competing and a space tour outside space, which ends with some weird aliens consuming guacamole.
How Successful the Ad Became
“We all have found our nice spot with the viewers who came to watch the game,” people like Kevin Hamilton, the company’s guru of brand marketing, strategy, and public relations stated in a news release. He stated we all look forward to making nationwide avocado fans happy with the ad.
Ringwald stated her family and friends are more excited about the Super Bowl commercial than she is. Apart from the fact that she doesn’t watch the game, when asked the last time she watched it from start to finish, she said she had never done such a thing. She stated this year there would be a change though. And that she has huge plans of watching the entire Super Bowl this year.
