Ford is attempting to do something a little bit differently this year, creating a long-form Super Bowl commercial starring James Franco and Fox NFL Sunday host Rob Riggle.

The ad, which confused some viewers with its odd early teaser, features Riggle talking about the Ford Fusion Hybrid, followed by Franco trying to outdo Riggle's excitement.

There's also a tiger.

“Rob will be playing himself in part of it, and then I’ll be playing a version of Rob in the other part,” Franco told Entertainment Weekly. “Super Bowl commercials are almost like little movies nowadays. …In the ad, a lot of the little things in Rob’s portion will have doubles in my portion, but everything will be much grander. He has a chihuahua, I have a Bengal tiger.”
