Super Bowl Commercials 2012: Acura NSX Featuring Jerry Seinfeld And The Soup Nazi

The Super Bowl commercials are nearly as big as the game for some people, and in a lot of cases big stars are brought in as pitchmen for tyathese spots. Acura is pitching their new 2012 NSX model with Jerry Seinfeld trying to win over the guy who is first in line to get the new car.

Seinfeld is obsessed in being the first person to get the new model and stats his offer low with a simple $20 but then along the way he ups the ante which includes doing a failed standup attempt at his family dinner, offering the last living munchkin from The Wizard of Oz and the Soup Nazi character from Seinfeld with the mention that he owns all the characters.

The offer that wins Seinfeld the top spot was his personal Manhattan zip line course.

However at the last second, Jay Leno swoops in with his jet pack flying squirrel suit that can take him cross country in 20 minutes. and with that offer Leno takes the top spot from Seinfeld.
