PSY made his first American commercial appearance in an ad for Super Bowl XLVII.
The commercial was for the brand “Wonderful Pistachios.” PSY parodies his own song “Gangnam Style” and changes the lyrics to “Crackin’ Gangnam Style. Heeeey Crack your nuts now. Crack crack pistachios.” In the video, he dances his now infamous dance in a sparkly green suit along with some giant pistachios with nice legs.
If he wasn’t exposed to the world already with his billion YouTube hits, he is definitely out there now. About 1 billion people tune in from over 200 countries to watch the Super Bowl. A thirty second Super Bowl ad costs about 4 million USD, or approximately $130 thousand USD per second.
