Bridgestone 2009 Super Bowl Commercial, Taters Preview

This Bridgestone ad that aired during Super Bowl XLIII on Feb. 1, 2009 features Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head driving in their convertible car. As Mr. Potato Head rapidly drives up a mountainous hill, his wife tells him to slow down as his driving resembles that of a maniac. Mr. Potato Head ignores all of his wife's comments and continues to speed. All of a sudden, they are confronted with a large group of sheep that are located in the middle of the road. The wife yells, "Sheeeeeeep," just as Mr. Potato Head manages to slam on his breaks. Mrs. Potato Head's lips are seen flying off of the side of the mountain, and coincidently, her voice goes along with them. Enraged, she decides to swap her eyes to angry eyes. Mr. Potato Head simply chuckles and begins to drive again. Bridgestone announces that its tires are for any driver who wishes to get the most out of his/her car.
