Jeep celebrates Groundhog Day with Super Bowl ad starring Bill Murray

It’s Groundhog Day all over again.

Bill Murray has recreated his role as Phil Connors in the 1993 film Groundhog Day for Jeep’s Super Bowl 2020 ad that also celebrates the U.S. and Canada’s Groundhog Day tradition.

This year’s Groundhog Day, which is celebrated every 2nd of February, has coincided with the 2020 Super Bowl. People who celebrate this tradition believe that if a groundhog emerges from its burrow on February 2, it would have implications on the weather.

This tradition was adopted into a film with the same day and it starred Bill Murray.

Jeep has found it timely to cast Bill in its Groundhog Day commercial for the Super Bowl 2020. The brand’s 60-second commercial shows Bill being excited about the Jeep Gladiator as his "getaway vehicle” after taking the groundhog. Apart from Bill, Jeep’s TV commercial for the Big Game also starred Brian Doyle Murray and Stephen Tobolowsky who also relived their roles in the 1993 film as Buster Green and Ned Ryerson.

The ad also marks Bill’s first-ever commercial. Jeep filmed the commercial in Woodstock, Illinois, the same location as the original film.

“This is my first commercial. I'm glad I did it with you (Jeep)… And I'm glad that this is my last commercial, as well,” Bill said in statement.
