This Planters Super Bowl Commercial 2020 Will Not Air, Features Mr. Peanut's Death Scene

Planters was planning on airing two commercials during the 2020 Super Bowl, but now only one will be shown out of respect for the death of Kobe Bryant.

In the first ad, the Mr. Peanut character is riding in a car with actors Wesley Snipes and Matt Walsh, but they crash off a cliff. The three of them are hanging off a tree, but their weight is causing it to snap, so Mr. Peanut falls to his death.

The second commercial is going to be a funeral for Mr. Peanut. This will still air, but instead of airing in the third quarter, it will air during the second quarter, before the tribute to Kobe during the halftime show.

You can watch the “Road Trip” ad right here.
