Avocado lobby's primeval ad marks its first trip to the Super Bowl

After teasing ad-watchers Thursday with sports commentators Doug Flutie and Jerry Rice (plus a rhinoceros), Avocados from Mexico rolled out its full Super Bowl spot Friday.

GSD&M's creation for the Irving, Texas-based avocado advocate depicts a parody of the NFL draft. "About four billion years ago," countries pick which flora and fauna will join their teams.

Flutie and Rice provide commentary on the picks. Mexico drafts avocados — a choice the commenters approve.

The ad will air at the end of the first quarter of the Super Bowl.
