Jelly Roll Is Hilariously Unrecognizable In Super Bowl LVIII Ad

Jelly Roll could hardly believe his eyes when he looked in the mirror in a new advertisement ahead of Super Bowl LVIII.
The Nashville, Tennessee-born artist posted a brief clip of the Uber Eats ad on his social media channels on Thursday (February 1), captioning his post, “WHO DID THIS TO ME??!” The video opens with the 2024 Grammy Awards nominee appearing to put toiletries away in his bathroom. When he closes the cabinet door and catches a glimpse of himself in the mirror, the “Halfway to Hell” star stares wide-eyed.
“What happened to my face? Are these tattoos?!” Jelly Roll says in disbelief as he examines his face tattoos. “They’re everywhere! And they’re horrible!”
The advertisement teased Super Bowl Sunday, set for February 11. The San Francisco 49ers and the Kansas City Chiefs are headed to the Super Bowl at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada. The highly-anticipated game will also feature a star-studded lineup of artists set to perform. The NFL previously announced that beloved country icon Reba McEntire will perform the National Anthem this year (following Chris Stapleton’s powerful rendition at last year’s game, and adding to a growing list of country stars to accept the honor). Post Malone will sing “America The Beautiful,” and Andra Day will perform “Lift Every Voice and Sing.” Grammy Award-winning artist Usher was previously confirmed as the Super Bowl LVIII Halftime Show headliner. He said in a statement to ESPN at that time that “it’s an honor of a lifetime,” to perform the halftime show. “I can't wait to bring the world a show unlike anything else they've seen from me before.”
Many Super Bowl viewers, of course, are also eager to see whether pop megastar Taylor Swift will make it back to the U.S. from an “Eras Tour” stop to cheer for her boyfriend, Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce. Swift is reportedly expected to attend the game.
