Avocados from Mexico 'Big Game Teaser 2015' by GSD&M

The avocado lobby will dip into the Super Bowl for the first time

Last January, America ate 70 million pounds of avocados, many of which presumably went into guacamole as a Super Bowl snack.

Avocados from Mexico — an avocado advocacy group based in Irving, Texas — will debut its first Super Bowl spot at the end of the first quarter. The ad was created by Austin, Texas' GSD&M.

Read how Avocados from Mexico may change Super Bowl culture

The teaser for the "#FirstDraftEver" campaign features Jerry Rice and Doug Flutie. The 52-year-old former NFL players — who each played for a team in this year's Super Bowl — share banter about the woes of finding a babysitter.

Then, there's a rhinoceros. Why? We'll have to wait until the big game on Sunday to see.
