Girls Trip star Tiffany Haddish will star in a Super Bowl ad for Groupon thanks to the hilarious story she told last year on Jimmy Kimmel Live about using a Groupon to take Will and Jada Pinkett Smith on a "swamp tour." "The Jimmy Kimmel link went through the entire company very quickly," Groupon marketing exec Jon Wild tells People. "We talked about involving her in our business...and here we are talking about her in the context of the Super Bowl." Haddish's Super Bowl spot was shot in December; Groupon will tease snippets from the commercial ahead of Super Bowl LII on February 4.
May I just add something to this wonderful news story? When ODM and I had Tiffany on about a year and a few months ago, she told us this hilarious Groupon story! Truth, she told our listeners before it went viral on Jimmy Kimmel. That was the day I fell in love with her infectious spirit. It makes me so happy that this beautiful person is seeing so much success come her way. Totally deserving.
