The highly anticipated Super Bowl is around the corner, and with it comes the glitzy, high-budget commercials. One standout commercial that has already gone viral, even before the big game is the Jennifer Aniston Super Bowl commercial for UberEats.
In the advertisement, Aniston receives an UberEats delivery and seems to have a hard time remembering the service’s tagline – “in order to remember something, you’ve gotta forget something else, make a little room.” The comedy continues as she seems to forget that the delivery service offers more than just food and draws a blank when confronted by actor David Schwimmer, who plays a fictionalized version of himself in the ad.
The commercial capitalizes on the enduring popularity of the TV show Friends, with which Aniston and Schwimmer are famously associated. The ad cleverly uses humor to play off the concept that even people who have worked together for years might still not remember or recognize everyone they’ve encountered over the years. The humorous interaction between Aniston and Schwimmer is a delightful treat for Friends fans.
Both Aniston and Schwimmer played iconic roles as Rachel Green and Ross Geller, respectively, on the beloved sitcom, from 1994 to 2004. The commercial is a nostalgic reminder of the incredible chemistry the two shared on the show while also highlighting the everyday experiences of busy actors.
The commercial begins with hope, as Schwimmer protests, “We worked together for 10 years,” to which Aniston seems unconvinced. The humor continues as Aniston feigns surprise and confusion when Schwimmer approaches her, resulting in a wince-worthy-yet-humorous interaction.
However, it should be noted that the purpose of the commercial is not to be a super bowl tearjerker, create controversies, or be a flop. It’s simply a lighthearted and amusing moment for fans of Friends and Aniston. The commercial has already made the rounds on YouTube, allowing fans to get an early glimpse before the big game.
The Super Bowl is not just about the sport itself; it’s an event that also emphasizes music performances, high-profile commercials, and sales on various products. With YouTube making it easier to view these high-profile ads, it has become unnecessary to actually sit through the sporting event to see them.
This pre-Super Bowl advertisement is just a taste of the creativity and star power that fans can expect from the commercials during the big game, and the Jennifer Aniston Uber Eats ad has set a high standard for entertainment and excitement. Whether you’re a sports enthusiast or not, the Jennifer Aniston Super Bowl commercial is surely something to look forward to during the broadcast.
