How to find Wonder Woman at the Super Bowl
Gal Gadot is making a surprise appearance, and we have your sneak peek.
Sure, some of us will be watching the big game. Whether it's the Packers, Falcons, Steelers or Patriots, sports fans will be cheering on their favorite team in a couple weeks.
Meanwhile, some of us will be enjoying that other time-honored tradition: the commercials.
Super Bowl ads have long been grist for the water cooler the morning after the big game. One of the ads people may be talking about is a commercial for the Israel-based Internet company Wix. The ad is a mini action movie starring, Gal Gadot.
The Israeli-born actress will be premiering in her own Wonder Woman movie later this year. When the first full trailer was released in November, it was greeted with unfettered enthusiasm. So any new chance we get to see her superhero skills in action is welcome indeed.
In the minute-long video, directed by French filmmaker Louis Leterrier, Gadot and British action star Jason Statham wreak havoc at a bistro. In the process, they show off some incredible action skills. You can watch the video below:
"Despite the mess I made, I still managed to get a dessert on the house," Gadot joked on her Facebook page.
Omer Shai, a graduate of the Academic College of Tel Aviv and the chief marketing officer at Wix, said he and his team wanted to do something disruptive with the ad's storyline. "The ad shows that it doesn't matter how disruptive the world is or the challenges you'll face in starting your own business – we'll be there for you," he said.
The new commercial featuring Gal Gadot will air during the fourth quarter of the Super Bowl on Sunday, Feb. 5.
