Eli Manning and Odell Beckham Jr. Win Super Bowl with Dirty Dancing-Themed Ad

by at .

The Philadelphia Eagles won Super Bowl 52 on Sunday night.

On the field, that is.

But two rivals of both the Eagles and New England Patriots won Super Bowl 52 in the court of public opinion, when it comes to which commercial received the most love on social media.

And, let's face it, hasn't this become what Super Bowl broadcasts are truly all about these days?

In the spot below, New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. and quarterback Eli Manning reenact the iconic lift from Dirty Dancing, doing so for an NFL commercial that left all viewers in stitches.

The commercial is filmed during a (pretend) Giants practice, as Eli and Beckham lock eyes during a break in action.

As they do so, "I Had the Time of My Life," one of the most memorable songs in film history, starts to play in the background.

And the stars don't just half-ass their interpretation of this dance scene, either. Oh no. Far from it.

At one point, Beckham mimics Jennifer Grey's laugh, while Manning does a sexy solo just like Patrick Swayze.

We're talking serious attention to detail here.

Actor Chad Michael Murray loved the ad, tweeting:

“Eli Manning just won my heart… #FlashDance #Incredible #SuperBowlCommercial #SuperBowl #EliManning,” although he later corrected himself on the movie the two recreated.

Former Glee star Harry Shum Jr. agreed, writing online: “That Eli Manning/Dirty Dancing commercial was [amazing]!"

Others joked about how Eli and the Giants had once again defeated the Patriots in the Super Bowl, following the two upsets during which the Giants actually defeated the Patriots in a Super Bowl.

It's worth giving a shout-here, as well, to offensive linemen cameos John Jerry, Brett Jones, D.J. Fluker, John Greco and Chad Wheeler, all of whom got in for a bit on the hilarious action.

Safety Landon Collins was also featured, albeit briefly.

The commercial culminated, meanwhile, in the only way it possibly could:

With Beckham leaping into Manning's arms to complete the famous Dirty Dancing lift.

Were they as successful on the field as Swayze and Grey were on stage?

There is just one way to find out. Press PLAY right now!
