Seinfeld Begs, Bribes Way Into Acura NSX

Acura super bowl commercial
Automakers are rolling out the big names for their Super Bowl XLVI ads. Comedian Jerry Seinfeld is the latest star to endorse a car during a game-time commercial.

Unsurprisingly, the spot is funny, and true to form, it's an uncomfortable funny. Jerry wants the new Acura NSX, but finds out he’s customer No. 2 on the waiting list. In response, he launches a campaign to be the first in line to get Acura's new sports car.

His fantastic bribery plots finally win him the keys, but in a very Newman-esque moment, rival comedian Jay Leno swoops in. Seinfeld is again relegated to the No. 2 spot.
