There’s a sense of deja vu in at least one Super Bowl commercial whose pre-game release is lighting up the internet.
Bill Murray returns in a Jeep commerical that reprises his role in the 1993 comedy classic Groundhog Day, in which he plays Phil Connors, a TV weatherman on assignment to cover the annual Punxsutawney Phil goundhog prediction on winter’s duration. But while at the event, he’s caught in time loop, reliving the same day over and over.
