Mr. Peanut Dead At Age 104
Say it isn’t so! Our beloved Mr.Peanut gave up his life to save others and there’s going to be a funeral at Super Bowl LlV.
Super Bowl commercial season is here, and Planters is kicking things off with a bang. In a nutshell, their beloved mascot Mr. Peanut gives up his life to save Matt Walsh and Wesley Snipes. The trio was driving in the NUTmobile when they were forced to swerve to avoid an armadillo in the road.
Mr. Peanut loses control of the vehicle and they were thrown from the vehicle and rolled off a cliff. Snipes, Walsh, and Mr. Peanut managed to grab hold of a branch and were dangling above a canyon.
As the branch begins to break, Mr. Peanut knows it cannot support their weight and decides to make the ultimate sacrifice. He let go of the tree limb, falling to his death.
Planters announced the sad news on Twitter.
“We’re devastated to confirm that Mr. Peanut is gone. He died doing what he did best – having people’s backs when they needed him most. #RIPeanut”
Planters will air a funeral for Mr. Peanut during the third quarter of Super Bowl LIV.
