While Bob Dylan will cede the main stage to the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Bruno Mars during the actual Super Bowl performance, the man’s face and music will appear throughout the game thanks to Chrysler motor vehicles and Chobani yogurt.
As Billboard reports, Dylan will star in a Chrysler commercial for the latest in the automaker’s series of cinematic Super Bowl ads. The ad will be similar to previous high-profile Super Bowl ads that starred Eminem and Clint Eastwood. An as-yet-unknown track from Dylan’s catalog will provide the soundtrack for the commercial. May we suggest: Oxford Town (& Country Minivan).
The Chobani ad, featuring Dylan’s timeless “I Want You” hit the web yesterday and will also be aired during the Super Bowl.
Dylan is, of course, no stranger to lending his songs and his person for ads, having appeared previously in spots for Pepsi with will.i.am and in an ad for Victoria’s Secret with supermodel Adrian Lima.
