Bill Murray Returns to Groundhog Day in Jeep Gladiator TV Spot
Actor and comedian Bill Murray returns to his iconic Groundhog Day role in a new Jeep Gladiator TV spot that dropped earlier this morning, just in time for a likely repeat appearance in the Super Bowl 2020 broadcast.
In the spot, Murray — reprising his role as Phil the TV weatherman — repeats the premise of the film by waking up to the same morning day after day. In a humorous twist, Phil spots a new Jeep Gladiator this morning, shouts “That’s different!”, and then proceeds to spend the next several days behind the wheel of said Gladiator with Punxsutawney Phil beside him, tooling about the snowy countryside. It’s a clever spot, and perfectly timed with the real Groundhog Day reveal today. (For the record, Phil did not see his shadow this morning, so an early Spring will reportedly be in our collective weather future.)
