Montana Miracle Stain: Tide Super Bowl Ad "Stars" NFL Legend

by at . Comments

Former San Francisco 49ers quarterback and bona fide NFL legend Joe Montana made an appearance at the 2013 Super Bowl in a commercial for Tide.

Sort of.

Montana showed up as a "miracle" stain in Tide's ad, during which a guy spills food on his white Montana Jersey and a perfect likeness of Joe's face appears.

Soon after comes the press conference, news stories and everyone making a huge deal out of it. Surprisingly, Montana did not make an actual cameo.

But it's definitely him. Take a look at the image blown up:

Where does this Tide spot rank among 2013 Super Bowl commercials?

Maybe better than average. There were some better commercials, but this is certainly above the God Made a Farmer spot and the GoDaddy one. Yeesh.

Below Super Bowl blackout Tweets though. Those were the best.
