The Super Bowl will bring an audience roughly 13 times bigger than NBC typically gets in primetime, so it’s not a bad idea for the entertainment division to introduce itself to some of those people.
So ladies and gentlemen, say hello to much of NBC’s on-camera talent singing and dancing to a song called “Brotherhood of Man.” It’s pretty good stuff — and most heartening, the cast of “Community” plays a part, stoking our hopes that this is the first step to it being back on the schedule in the relatively near future.
Cast members From “30 Rock,” “The Office,” “Parks and Recreation,” “Smash,” “Law & Order: SVU,” “Whitney,” “Are You There, Chelsea?,” “Parenthood,” “The Voice,” “The Tonight Show” and “Saturday Night Live,” along with Brian Williams and the “Today” crew, take part in the number, and it’s a pretty fun four minutes. Highlights for us include Tracy Morgan calling himself “bladorkable” (“It worked for FOX!” Alec Baldwin notes), Ron Swanson (Nick Offerman) refusing to sing in the “Parks and Rec” portion and Tina Fey asking, “Are we in Super Bowl commercial? Is a Clydesdale gonna kick a beer at Betty White or something?”
What do you think of the promo? Nice to see the gang from Greendale, no?
