Jerry Seinfeld Super Bowl Ad is Hilarious [VIDEO]

Acura has followed this year’s trend of releasing Super Bowl ads prior to the big game with their extended spot for the 2012 Acura NSX starring Jerry Seinfeld.

I’m not one to boast about commercials, but this almost 2-minute long advertisement is hilarious. The ad begins at an Acura dealership with Seinfeld speaking to a salesman. He discovers that he’s the second person on the waiting list, and immediately begins his mission to win over the person in the first spot to claim his place.

Some of the ridiculous strategies include $20 cash, the ‘Soup Nazi’ of Seinfeld fame, small talk with the omelet guy, stand-up at a family dinner party, acting out a reality TV show using sock puppets, showing the man a live alien, and allowing access to Seinfeld’s private ziplines throughout Manhattan.

Watch the clip below, and look out for the surprise celebrity guest appearance at the end.
