One day after the Super Bowl, brands are still fighting over what commercial “won” the big game in regards to social media, buzz or USA Today-ness. Unfortunately, one spot that won’t be part of the “best of” conversation, mainly because it wasn’t technically a “Super Bowl commercial” per se, is NYC-based production company Hungry Man’s pregame mini-musical promo for NBC’s various TV lineups.
“Brotherhood of Man,” passes the mic between shows’ stars, from Jane Krakowski and the 30 Rock cast to Kenan “Goodburger” Thompson and the SNL cast, from Ed Helms and the The Office crew to Will Arnett and the ladies of Up All Night. Hey, we even get to see that Alec Baldwin‘s voice lessons he took for his role in Rock of Ages paid off after all. Credits follow after the jump.
