Eli Manning, Odell Beckham get dirty in show-stealing Super Bowl commercial

Tuesday, 06 Feb, 2018

The two Isidore Newman alumni started the commercial out running a practice route ending in Beckham finding the endzone.

Beckham Jr., playing the part of Jennifer Grey's Baby, even jumps into Manning, who took on Patrick Swayze's Johnny. NY featured a porous rushing attack that only ran for 96.8 yards per game, ranking 26th in the National Football League this season.

Peter Dinklage and Morgan Freeman in any Super Bowl commercial was going to be epic, but having them RAP (lip sync, obviously) Busta Rhymes and Missy Elliott?!

Unfortunately for the 40-year-old quarterback, Philadelphia defeated his Patriots 41-33 in Super Bowl LII.

"I think we have an understanding of what we want to do", Beckham said.

It felt like one of Manning's legendary and memorable Saturday Night Live skits, but the addition of Beckham, Collins and members of the offensive line only made it that much better.

The behind-the-scenes look at the making of a commercial is almost as amusing.

As for the lift and the question on everyone's minds: Did Manning really lift Beckham?

And you better believe the nail that iconic lift.

Dougherty said that Aaron Stoller, the commercial's director, was well known for shooting comedy and that the commercial set out to deliver "a little unexpected humor in a very contentious year".
