The Avocado from Mexico Super Bowl 50 commercial is online and it is hilarious how small Scot Baio's role is in it.
Avocados From Mexico is the number-one selling avocado brand in the United States. The brand announced last week that Scott Baio, known from the classic TV Show Happy Days, stars in the Big Game Ad. Now the avocado marketing firm has released the full Avocado from Mexico Super Bowl 50 Ad online and Scott Baio is only in the ad for a second.

Stationed on an interplanetary museum, the new Avocado Super Bowl ad opens with a tall, orange alien tour guide leading a bunch of other aliens through an exhibit about Earth.
The tour highlights what the aliens have determined are the most unique Earthly possessions that would amaze beings far and wide. These possessions, determined by the aliens themselves, showcase a number of pop-culture treasure troves, including the always in-season Avocados From Mexico.
Throughout the spot, the alien guide points enthusiastically to a range of pop-culture phenomena's from a Rubik's cube to a mannequin wearing the infamous blue or gold dress that drove the internet crazy. Actor Scott Baio is one of these items that represent earth, which is hilarious. Now we know why Scott Baio was playing with a Rubik's cube in the teaser to the spot.
"We are excited to build on last year's momentum and continue to integrate Avocados From Mexico into America's favorite pop-culture moments in fun, creative ways beyond the kitchen," said Alvaro Luque, president of Avocados From Mexico. "This year, we really enjoyed pushing creative boundaries for the fresh produce category and going head to head with some of the biggest brands in the world. Our ultimate goal is to drive home the importance of origin, and year-round accessibility of this delicious, authentic Mexican fruit."
Last year, Avocado from Mexico made history as the first fresh produce brand to advertise during the Big Game with the light-hearted and humorous "First Draft Ever" commercial. It featured former NFL stars Doug Flutie and Jerry Rice, who announced Mexico's choice of the avocado during a pre-historic, football-styled "draft" of plants and animals.
According to the Hass Avocado Board, fresh avocado consumption leading up to the Big Game is expected to reach a record 278 million avocados – a 13 percent increase over last year.
