Advertising For Dummies: Since when do elephants work out? (2017)

The folks who make Wonderful Pistachios would like you to believe that elephants would give up peanuts for their product.

A few months ago, the advertising agency working with the company began a series of ads with a CGI elephant named Ernie (voiced by WWE champ & reality star John Cena), the latest of which premiered during the Super Bowl.

Ernie has appeared in two ads with Seattle Seahawks loudmouth Richard Sherman, which for Sherman is a bit of an upgrade after having Stephen A. Smith's voice in his stomach the previous 2 seasons while shilling for Oberto beef jerky.

More Super Bowl 51 ads coming as the week progresses.
