VFL Jerod Mayo Tackles Pete Davidson in Laugh-Out-Loud Super Bowl Commercial

    by -

    The competition may very well be over before it even starts. No, not the Super Bowl itself, but the ongoing commercial competition during the Big Game. And that’s where VFL Jerod Mayo comes in to play.

    Teaming up with Hellmann’s Mayonaisse, Jerod Mayo is the spotlight star of a brand new Super Bowl commercial that is nothing short of laugh-out-loud funny.

    On the Monday before the game, Hellman’s released the commercial online and sent the internet into a frenzy. From Tennessee fans to Patriots fans to condiment fans everywhere, Super Bowl viewers are sure to get a kick watching VFL Jerod Mayo launch some unsuspecting guests across the room.

    Here… take a look for yourself… “Grandma!”

    In the commercial, former Patriots linebacker Mayo did his best to tackle food waste… even if the one wasting the food was SNL’s Pete Davidson.

    Judging by the overall quality of the last couple of years, Mayo’s mayo commercial may very well be the best commercial in 2022. Not just in comparison to commercials of years past, but really just because this one was so unique, clever, and funny. Who didn’t laugh when Mayo trucked the grandmother!

    Since his time playing for Tennessee, Mayo spent his whole NFL career with the New England Patriots. Mayo’s eight-year playing career with the Patriots included a Super Bowl championship, two Pro Bowl selections, and one first-team All-Pro selection.

    In 2019, though, Mayo transitioned into a coaching role with the team under head coach Bill Belichick. Mayo took over as the Patriots’ linebackers coach, a position he currently holds today.

    Jerod Mayo was a game-changing player in the mid-2000s for Tennessee as a first-team All-SEC selection in 2007, which paved the way for him to be taken with the tenth pick in the first round of the 2008 NFL Draft.
