Acura has leaked their Seinfeld themed Super Bowl 2012 commercial and actually it's pretty funny. When I first heard that Jerry Seinfeld would be in a Super Bowl ad, I immediately thought of those awful Microsoft ads he did a few years ago... So I was skeptical of these Acura ads and actually it doesn't start off terribly funny, but it gets there.

Seinfeld basically wants to get the first 2012 Acura NSX and sets out on a campaign to convince the salesman who will sell it to sell to him. The lengths that he goes to get more and more absurd as the spot rolls on. The two highlights for me where the appearance by the Soup Nazi and Seinfeld doing a hacky standup act at the guy's family dinner.

So I say it's a good idea and return to commercial form for Jerry Seinfeld. Although there is a corny cameo at the end...
