We knew Aidan Hutchinson was going to be in a Super Bowl commercial, but if you missed it check it out here.
We saw the teases that Detroit Lions defensive end Aidan Hutchinson would appear in an ad “after halftime” of Super Bowl LVII on Sunday. What the ad was for was not known. But it was a sign the Detroit Lions rookie defensive end is becoming somewhat famous nationally, with growing star power coming off finishing runner-up for Defensive Rookie of the Year.
Hutchinson got some attention (to say the least) with his dance rendition of Michael Jackson’s “Billie Jean” captured on “Hard Knocks”. But a Super Bowl ad is a different thing, and the theme of this year’s ads was stars being featured.
Amid the circumstance of a Super Bowl party, it can be easy to miss an ad or even a few plays in the middle of the game. Yes, even right out of halftime it’s possible.
Hutchinson appeared in an ad for the NFL’s “Run With It” campaign, highlighting how . He was part of an All-Star lineup that included Pittsburgh Steelers defensive lineman Cam Heyward, Los Angeles Rams cornerback Jalen Ramsey and Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver Davante Adams.
The featured star was clearly Diana Flores though, the captain of Mexico’s Women’s National Flag Football team.

Hutchinson clearly has on-field talent, but he also seems to have the kind of personality that can make him a star off the field too. That he was chosen to be in this commercial when the world would be watching is telling in that sense, as he eyes the next step in his career and the Lions show themselves as a team on the rise.
