Pete Davidson Tackled In Front Of His Mum In Super Bowl Ad

He's said it himself: life is going pretty well for Pete Davidson - he's dating one of the most famous women in the world, and spends his weekends having dinner at Jeff Bezos' house.

But the SNL star has been put through the wringer while filming a new Super Bowl commercial, as he's seen being tackled to the ground by a 250 lb former NFL linebacker, all in the name of promoting Hellmann's mayonnaise.

To be fair, it's all for a good cause. The 60 second ad, which premiered on Monday, February 7 ahead of this weekend's big game, is intended to raise awareness of the campaign against food waste, and sees the appropriately named former New England Patriots linebacker Jerod Mayo (seriously, real name,) going door to door laying out Super Bowl party guests who throw away perfectly eatable food.

Mayo's got plenty of suggestions up his sleeve too, letting the befuddled people he's just tackled know there are a whole host of easy recipes you can make with leftovers, from frittatas to grilled cheese sandwiches.

No one is safe. But when he comes across a party being held by Pete Davidson's mother, Amy, the comedian steps in, letting Mayo know that she's already doing her bit to tackle food waste.

Mayo lets Amy off the hook, but sends her son crashing to the ground anyway, telling him 'Sorry man, I had to.'

'I get it,' Davidson responds, 'I'm very hittable.'

In a statement reported by EW, Hellmann's said it was teaming up with the Harvard Law School's Food Law and Policy Clinic in an effort to 'inspire and enable 100 million people around the world every year to be more resourceful with their food, so they waste less.'

Speaking to PEOPLE following the ad's premiere, Davidson said of the campaign, 'Hellmann's whole thing is 'We're encouraging people to not waste food at home and use it in other aspects.' And we don't at the Davidson household, you'll see.'

As he's previously mentioned during his Weekend Update segments, until recently Davidson continued to share a house with his Staten Island-based mother, spending most of the pandemic in her basement. The pair have always shared a close relationship, with Amy having made a number of guest appearances on SNL too over the years.
