The full Jaguar 2014 Big Game commercial has been released just ahead of today’s Super Bowl game, finally revealing the nature of the very dark ‘Rendezvous.’
The 2014 Jaguar Super Bowl ad makes note of the fact that British actors are commonly cast as villains. The ad itself brings together Ben Kingsley, Tom Hiddleston, who plays Loki in The Avengers and Mark Strong, known for his role as Lord Blackwood in the 2009 Sherlock Holmes movie. The trio of villains spout off possible reasons for why Brits are cast as the bad guys, like that they are always focused, one step ahead, have an eye for detail and are obsessed with power. Of course, all of these traits can also be applied to the luxury British auto-maker as well, claiming that it’s “good to be bad.”
