PLANO, Texas, Jan. 8, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- NFL fans have waited all season to see which winning team will be showered with confetti on Super Bowl Sunday. As Super Wild Card Weekend approaches, Frito-Lay is bringing fans closer to the action with the debut of its 2024 NFL Playoff campaign, "Taste of Super Bowl."

The campaign features a new television commercial starring football legends Rob Gronkowski, Marshawn Lynch and Troy Polamalu as they rediscover the taste of victory – but this time with a chip-inspired twist. The former Super Bowl champions—with a combined seven Super Bowl victories between them – experience confetti bursting from bags of Lay's®, Cheetos® and Tostitos®. The pop of confetti transports them right back to the feeling of celebrating on football's biggest stage.

"More than 90% of football fans enjoy snacks and beverages on gameday while they cheer their team on to victory," said Tina Mahal, senior vice president of marketing, Frito-Lay North America. "With this new commercial, we wanted to harness the power of our iconic brands to extend the victory celebration to viewers and bring the confetti to them."

"Snacks are a key part of gameday, especially when coming together to watch the Super Bowl, and no one does it better than Frito-Lay," said Gronkowski. "I had a blast reliving some of those Super Bowl memories and creating that experience for the fans with Marshawn and Troy."

The commercial will debut on television during Super Wild Card Weekend and run through Super Bowl LVIII. It will also be available on digital and social channels. The spot was created by Frito-Lay's internal creative agency and directed by acclaimed director Peter Berg.
