The first Campbell’s Chunky Soup commercial featuring Seahawks’ star Richard Sherman and his mom hit the web Monday, and it’s pretty cheesy (and bacon-y.)
The extended spot features Mama Sherman and what is billed as the Legion of Super Fans soaring over Seattle in a helicopter in search of Sherman.
They spot him training at CenturyLink Field and hoist him up with the help of “Sea-Monster” (the muscle-bound super fan best known as the Seahulk, who told us recently they made him change his name and color scheme to avoid a copyright clash with Marvel Comics.)
Sherman catches a fumble in mid-air and delivers a lengthy monologue on teamwork before the crew lands in the kitchen for a hearty bowl of Campbell’s new Chunky Beer-n-Cheese with Beef and Bacon.
It’s a little corny but sweet, as Sherman tells his mom he loves the soup and she gives him a kiss and says “Mama loves you.”
Suffice it to say, the entire cast likely won’t win any acting awards, but it’s fun to see some well-deserved 12s getting a little love. The spots will begin airing nationally soon along with an online campaign.
