Letterman, Leno & Oprah Team Up For Super Bowl Commercial

In what was one of the most popular Super Bowl commercials of the night, late night hosts David Letterman and Jay Leno joined talk show host Oprah Winfrey in a 10 second spot for The Late Show with David Letterman.

Late Show executive producer Rob Burnett told EW how the ad was shot without the press catching on:

“We began having logistical meetings that would make the CIA proud,” Rob said. “We had to figure out a way to keep it a surprise. NBC arranged to have Jay fly on the NBC jet at 7:30 in morning on Feb. 2 and he was at the Teterboro Airport [in New Jersey] at 3:30 p.m. We snuck him through the front door on Broadway.”

Jay wore a disguise …a hooded sweatshirt, dark sunglasses and a mustache. Fifteen minutes later, Oprah arrived … but not in a disguise. We shot it in the balcony of the Ed Sullivan Theater.”

It was such a shock after all the late-night ugly. I think all three of them did themselves some good with that bit! Need more of that!

Totally shocking, I guess NBC wanted to promote the new-old Leno show!

I want to vomit everytime I see Leno on TV or anywhere.

TRIO OF HAS BEEN, TRY TO STICK TOGETHER….FAIL!!!! hahahah

they are definitely true comedians.. they can laugh at themselves and the situation. it was nice to see.

Letterman was funny. I like it even though I don’t like Oprah.

@ Alias, that would have made the commercial even MORE funnier! But I still love Letterman on there.

This was great. Loved it. Good of Oprah to lend a hand in healing.

it was pretty funny
i thought it had 2 do with something bigger tho
i was thinking that they might join forces 2 do something
who knows something still might be going on

What a brilliant idea but what ALIAS wrote is even better ( Conan walking in toward Leno saying – YOU TOOK MY SEAT.
This made me laugh a lot. Alias you should produce for TV
