Peyton Manning Becomes A Super Bowl 'Vacation Quarterback' For Universal Parks 

By Barry Janoff

January 30, 2018: Peyton Manning has played in, and won, two Super Bowls, with the Indianapolis Colts (Super Bowl XLI) and the Denver Broncos (Super Bowl 50).

He also has appeared on TV screens as a spokesperson in numerous commercials.

Now he gets to combine the two, starring for Universal Parks & Resorts in a Super Bowl LII spot, “Vacation Quarterback.”

The creative, done in-house, is organic as Universal Parks & Resorts in Hollywood and Orlando is a unit of Comcast NBCUniversal, which is airing the game on Sunday from U.S. Bank in Minneapolis.

The spot is scheduled to air in its full one-minute version during pre-Game and then in a 30-second version at half time.

Support includes Internet and social media.

The placement also puts Universal in front of an anticipated 111 million viewers ahead of its rival, Disney, which does a post-game spot with one of the Big Game’s top players, who answers the question, “You’ve just won the Super Bowl . . . What are you doing next?” by replying, “I’m going to Disney World.”

In the Universal Resorts spot, Manning coaches families on how to take their vacation to the next level at Universal Orlando Resort and Universal Studios Hollywood.

"This is your moment," Manning says as the quarterback of a family starting its day at a Universal theme park. "You are more than a team. You are a family. Now let's get out there and play."

As they roam the area, Manning encourages people to “Push your vacation to 110%.”

On one of the intense roller coasters, he screams, “Fear is never an option.”

The spot is filled with a bevy of football references.

In the Wizarding World of Harry Potter section of the park, he offers, “I really wanted to play Quidditch, but we’re kind of a football family.”

At the Transformers section, an oversize Bot proclaims, “All hail Megatron,” to which Manning replies, “Didn’t you play for Detroit?” referring to former Lions wide receiver Calvin Jones. To which Megatron replies, “The sight of you sickens me.”

At the end of the day, while trying to organize a family photo with the Minions, he yells, “Omaha.”

A voiceover then offers, “The off-season is on. So take your vacation to the next level," with a tag to both the Hollywood and Orlando destinations.
