This is for folks who get so bored of the continuous straightforward commentaries of Super Bowl announcers Phil Simms and Jim Nantz. Those folks had another and much more eccentric option in February 2016.
Comedy duo Jordan Peele and Keegan-Michael Key (aka Key & Peele) starred as Lee and Morris, a few outlandish and aspiring Atalanta sports commentary characters that they created for the 2016 Super Bowl Squarespace ad campaign.
The comedy duo also did a live and online commentary of the Super Bowl game broadcast but there was one major hitch: Neither the fictional characters or Squarespace had the rights to use or relate to any of the trademarks that were related to our nation’s Big Game two years ago.
That resulted in a few workarounds and entertaining dodges as the zany personalities were trying to carefully comment their way around the meticulously protected naming rights of the NFL. Squarespace, known for building websites, had released even a new teaser for their Super Bowl ad.
