Do you have ScarJo-SodaStream fatigue? Has all the controversial discourse about setting the bubbles free left you feeling a little flat? Then maybe its time to plunge in to the rest of the Super Bowl pre-game ad hype.

Next on the must-see list for Jewish football fans is the Big Game spot for Black Swan director Darren Aronofsky’s upcoming biblical epic, “Noah.” Paramount hopes moviegoers will flood in to theaters beginning March 28 to see its big release starring Russell Crowe. Anthony Hopkins, Emma Watson, and Jennifer Connelly co-star.

This is Noah like you’ve never seen him… at least not in Hebrew school. Get ready to be swept away as the hero of the second portion of the weekly Torah reading cycle protects his family and saves the innocent as a spectacular amount of CGI-generated water bears down on the world.

Bar Refaeli To Steam-Up Super Bowl Ad

January 4, 2013

This post first appeared on The Shmooze blog at The Forward.

bar2-15123SodaStream won’t be the only Israeli export fizzing things up at the Super Bowl come February 3. None other than supermodel Bar Refaeli, the hottest woman alive in 2012 according to Maxim, will join Danica Patrick in one of those racy Go Daddy ads we’ve all come to expect during the biggest broadcast of the year.

Patrick, known better for these sexy commercials for the Internet domain name company than for her race car driving career, will be making a record 12th Super Bowl appearance. On the other hand, this will be Refaeli’s first time on screen during the NFL championship game.

The women have just finished filming the spot, titled “Perfect Match,” in Los Angeles. With no more information made available about it, our imaginations are left to run wild about the chemistry between the pair.

Jerry Seinfeld enlists the Soup Nazi to help sell the Acura NSX

If Matthew Broderick can do it, then so can Jerry Seinfeld. Sell cars, that is. Hot on the (w)heels of Broderick’s reprise of his famous Ferris Bueller alter ego to hock a Honda, we have Seinfeld doing his shtick to push the new Acura NSX.

It seems these days you don’t even have to wait until Super Bowl Sunday to watch Super Bowl ads. Four and half million pairs of eyes have been on Seinfeld’s extended-length commercial since Monday, nearly a week before the game kick off.
