David Schwimmer Is Starring in the Skittles Super Bowl Ad That No One Will See
DAVID SCHWIMMER is starring in the Skittles Super Bowl commercial that NO ONE will see. Well, no one except some random teenager.
If you haven’t heard, the Skittles ad won’t air during the game. Instead, a teenager from Canoga Park, California will be the only one to see it. But viewers will be able to watch his REACTION to it through a livestream on Facebook.
Skittles has released four 15-second ‘teasers’ featuring David. In one, there’s a talking sandwich . . . there’s one where David is adrift in space . . . there’s another where he’s a weird monster with glowing eyes . . . and one where he’s a puppet’s puppet.
They’re all pretty weird. In each video, he questions whether what you’re seeing is an actual scene from the ad. Of course, for all we know, NONE of them are.
Skittles claims that no one else will EVER see the ad . . . not even David Schwimmer. Do you think they’ll keep their word . . . or will this thing end up online a couple days after the game? Discuss. (People)

Superbowl Sunday double-header: Vikings v. Eagles and Asteroid v. Earth
Super Bowl LII is shaping up to be a truly exciting day when 2016 Super Bowl champions, the New England Patriots, face the Philadelphia Eagles.
The Patriots have won the Super Bowl five times and will be appearing for the third time in four seasons. The Eagles have gone to the Super Bowl twice: the last time was in 2004 when they were beaten by the Pats.
Justin Timberlake will headline the halftime performance, while the national anthem will be sung by native Pennsylvanian Pink.
And of course there will be the requisite multi-million-dollar attention-grabbing commercials.
But when two teams face off at the U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis on February 4, Asteroid 2002 AJ129 will make a close approach to Earth two hours before kickoff. At the time of its nearest approach, the asteroid will be no closer than 10 times the distance between Earth and the Moon, or about 2.6 million miles.
The asteroid is classified as “potentially hazardous” but NASA insists that it “isn’t expected to hit earth.”
Which could also mean there’s not enough time to get Bruce Willis and Ben Affleck into space before an extinction-level event occurs, so there’s no point in warning people.
Paul Chodas, manager of NASA’s Center for Near-Earth Object Studies at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, California, who would probably be played by Paul Giamatti in a movie about the asteroid, said, “We have been tracking this asteroid for over 14 years and know its orbit very accurately. Our calculations indicate that asteroid 2002 AJ129 has no chance — zero — of colliding with Earth on February 4 or any time over the next 100 years.”
Paddypower.com favors The Patriots to win the Super Bowl at 4/9. There are no odds for Earth available at this time.
