Carrie Bradshaw And The Dude Make An Unlikely Pair In Stella Artois’ Super Bowl Spot

The world’s most unlikely duo—Sarah Jessica Parker’s Carrie Bradshaw from Sex and the City and Jeff Bridges’ The Dude of The Big Lebowski fame—is coming together in Stella Artois’ Super Bowl spot.

The ad, which will air during the second quarter of the game, first shows Parker’s Sex and the City character entering a restaurant (with the Sex and the City theme playing in the background), where she’s welcomed by the staff and immediately offered her signature drink: a cosmopolitan. When she turns it down, asking for a Stella Artois instead, it sends the restaurant into immediate shock and subsequent panic. The music stops, flames swell, waiters run around and food is spilled. But Carrie gets her beer.

After she does, The Dude enters the bar. The bartender assumes he wants a white Russian, his go-to beverage. But like Carrie, he changes his mind and asks for a Stella. Drink in hand, he goes and sits down at the table next to Carrie’s, who leans over to compliment his drink choice, to which he replies, “Changing can do a little good.”

U2 are set to return this spring with a new as-yet-untitled Danger Mouse-produced album and you can get their new single for free!

“Invisible” will be available as a limited-edition free download on iTunes for the first 24 hours after the Super Bowl commercial airs. For every download during that time, Bank of America will donate $1 (up to $2 million) to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, to provide life-saving HIV/AIDS treatment, testing and prevention services in many of the world’s poorest countries. Beyond the downloads, U2, (RED) and Bank of America expect to generate more than $10 million in donations and funding for the campaign.

U2 have also filmed a Super Bowl commercial, so expect to learn a whole lot more about their upcoming new album while you’re watching the big game.

U2 Planning April 2014 Record Release Which Will Be Announced With A Super Bowl Commercial

u2-est-de-retour

U2 are planning an April 2014 release for their new album, which they will announce with a commercial during the Super Bowl.

The Irish rockers worked on the album with producer Danger Mouse at Electric Lady Studios in New York. The band has been working on new material since 2011, when they finished the lengthy world tour that supported their 2009 album, No Line on the Horizon.

Bassist Adam Clayton said in June that the band had recorded an “abundance of riches,” which the musicians have been sifting through to make the strongest record possible. “We could make three or four different records and justify that to ourselves, but to make the best record you can, you have to steer away from the ones you can make easily,” he said then. “We’re really trying to get into territory that we’re not comfortable in.”

Last month, Clayton described the songs as a “bit of a return to U2 of old, but with the maturity, if you like, of the U2 of the last 10 years.” At the time, he said the group had selected 12 tracks and were hoping to complete them by the end of November so they could enjoy Christmas.

The upcoming won’t be the only new music U2 have on the way. On November 29th, Black Friday, the band is putting out a 10-inch single containing the new song “Ordinary Love.” The group recorded the track for the upcoming biopic Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom. The flipside of the vinyl contains a new version of the No Line track “Breathe.”
