World domination has been delayed by Dr. Evil. It is due to his new 2022 General Motors Super Bowl commercial. However, it looks like Dr. Evil is slowly making progress by dominating the Super Bowl commercial.
Finally, after about 20 years of the franchise’s final installment, Mike Myers is together with his “Austin Powers” co-stars for a 60-second feature.
In the ad, Dr. Evil talks not in his volcano hideout but in the General Motors HQ high-rise. He announces that he will take control of the carmaker with the aid of his confidant Number 2 (played by Rob Lowe) following the persuasion of his son Scott Evil (played by Seth Green) and assistant Frau Farbissina (played by Mindy Sterling) for him to save the world by minimizing carbon footprint with GM’s electric vehicles.
Myers offered a stirring performance of “My Lovin’ (You’re Never Gonna Get It),” 1992’s fashionable success, before playing his role in the “Austin Powers” franchise as Kyle, Scott’s son – or as Dr. Evil calls him, “Baby Me.”
The channel airing Super Bowl this year, NBC, has said that its 30-second commercials were selling for around $7 million, that’s beyond the “one-million-dollar” Dr. Evil ransom.
Firms such as Hellmann’s, featuring Pete Davidson, Squarespace, starring Zendaya, and Planet Fitness, with Lindsay Lohan, have released their Super Bowl commercials.
Super Bowl L VI starts February 13, Sunday, at 6:30 p.m. ET/PT on NBC.
