When we mention ‘Poker Face’ in the Super Bowl context, most people will think about Lady Gaga. But we’re not talking about her mesmerizing 2017 halftime performance. No, this is about Rian Johnson’s hit TV show with an all-star cast including Natalie Lyonne and Adrien Brody. Lyonne reprised her role in one of the most meta Super Bowl commercials.
This is one of those advertisements that only connected with a section of the audience. Many football fans didn’t understand the context of the storyline because they hadn’t seen the show. But Poker Face fans enjoyed it because it stayed true to the series. We’re not sure if that’s very effective but it was still interesting (via Gamerant).
