NFL Players Recreate “Dirty Dancing” Scene In 2018 Super Bowl Commercial


Super Bowl commercials have become as anticipated as the game itself!

During the Super Bowl LII between the New England Patriots and the Philadelphia Eagles, fans were treated to a performance of a different kind when two of football’s biggest stars came together to recreate one of the big screen’s most iconic moments.

Giants quarterback and two-time Super Bowl MVP Eli Manning and teammate, two-time Pro Bowler, and holder of numerous NFL records, Odell Beckham Jr. starred in the 60-second commercial created to celebrate touchdowns.

The video is set at the Giants’ practice facility and opens with Manning asking Beckham, “Do you want to go work on that thing?” The players make their way to the field and Manning throws a touchdown pass to Beckham. When the receiver makes the catch “(I’ve Had) The Time of My Life” from the 1987 movie Dirty Dancing begins to play.

Instead of the typical NFL touchdown celebration, Manning and Beckham start performing the well-known choreography from the movie, including the iconic lift. Giants offensive linemen Brett Jones, John Greco, Chad Wheeler, D.J. Fluker, and John Jerry appear as backup dancers.

The tag line at the end of the ad read, “To all the touchdowns to come.”
