Earlier this week, our other favorite internet sweetheart Anna Kendrick gave the web a good chortle with a new mock Super Bowl ad for Newcastle Brown Ale. In it, the “approachably hot” actress sits in what’s presumably her Newcastle-given dressing room and airs a not-unextensive list of grievances. Such as: not being able to say the words “Super Bowl,” being gypped out of a “sh*t-ton” of money from a beer she doesn’t even drink, and not being “beer-commercial hot.”
“I’m approachable hot, like the hottest girl in your improv class hot. Like hot to the kind of guys who feel bad calling a girl hot. But I love a challenge,” she says, mad-dogging her own reflection.
Like the rest of Newcastle’s hyper-meta Super Bowl ads, Kenrick’s spot is witty and refreshing, though maybe not quite as side-splittingly hilarious as some internet hyperbole might have you believe. It’s an undestated funny. Like, the kind of funny you’d expect from an American delivery of British humor. Like “The Office” funny. But hilarious, LOL, best thing you’ve seen all week-funny? No.
