Mr. Peanut speaks for all of us

Who knew Mr. Peanut - yes, that Mr. Peanut - was so sassy?

Apparently Super Bowl Sunday was Mr. Peanut's time to shine. No, I didn't watch the game either, and most of the chatter I saw online was about Gladys Knight's stunning and classy performance of the national anthem, and how the commercials were underwhelming.

So this morning this popped up on my Twitter feed: Apparently Scientology ran an ad during the big game. If you've seen episodes of Leah Remini's Scientology program, you know how vile and abusive they are. It's infuriating to watch. They don't seem to have gotten the message that everyone hates them, so they ran a typically self-aggrandizing ad titled "Curiosity".

I'm sure there were a lot of reactions to it, but the best came from...Mr. Peanut. Yes, the Planters Peanuts mascot:

Step away from the crazy peoples.

It's actually a gif and I couldn't get it to embed, so check it out here. Mr. Sassy Peanut also wasn't too impressed with the game itself, as can be see here.

Seriously, when the most entertaining thing about your major sporting event is the anthem and an animated peanut sporting a top hat and monocle, you may want to rethink your strategy.
