Ford Teases Super Bowl Commercial with James Franco, Tiger

Ford Motor Company has released a teaser for its Super Bowl XLVIII ad. The spot, which is a bit strange, stars James Franco, who thinks he's comedian and Fox NFL Sunday host Rob Riggle, and a... tiger.

Franco says "this is no ordinary commercial", but something that has "never been done before in the history of commercials". The 17-second video also shows the #nearlydouble hashtag, but there's no hint to what Ford is about to advertise. However, we do know that the 90-second spot will air before the Super Bowl, so make sure you stay tuned for the full clip.

The Super Bowl XLVIII, between the Seattle Seahawks and the Denver Broncos, is scheduled to kick off later today. The Big Game will include ads from Chevrolet, Chrysler, Jaguar, Kia, Toyota, Audi and Hyundai.
