Steve Harvey’s surprise commercial plunge for Super Bowl reminded viewers of his Miss Universe blunder. The blunder where the comedian crowned the wrong lady as Miss Universe has attracted a lot of criticism and jokes. This time, Steve decided to mock his own mistake in a Super Bowl commercial for T-Mobile.
The Super Bowl commercial was introduced during the big game on Sunday. He apologized to T-Mobile for making a mistake. He also said that it was rival carrier Verizon that should be blamed.
The Miss Universe blunder attracted a lot of criticism. Dealing with all of them, it was time for the comedian to laugh about it. He mistakenly crowned Miss Colombia as the Miss Universe winner. Moments later, he realized his mistake and announced Miss Philippines as the winner and Miss Colombia as runner-up.
In the spot, he said, “When something major happens that’s kind of negative in your life, you just have to ride the storm out, you never know how it’s going to be, who ever thought that this mishap with Miss Universe would turn into a Super Bowl commercial.”
He added, “It was a tough thing that happened, but after a while you need to start smiling about this. … I like T-Mobile, so I thought it would be a great idea and I liked the concept. Take a nice little dig at myself.”
He said in the ad, “It says right here on the card, T-Mobile doubled their LTE coverage in the last year with more LTE towers than Verizon. T-Mobile reaches pretty much everyone they do. I’m not taking responsibility on this one. Uh-uh. Verizon got it wrong. Yes! Not me.”
The Super Bowl commercial of T-Mobile also had Steve Harvey saying sorry to Miss Colombia. It seems that the comedian has been able to ride the tide and is finally over his mistake.
