The new Tide commercial featuring Jason Alexander has Super Bowl LV viewers freaking out. They want to know who he is, and they also need to know where they can get the hoodie from the ad. So, what happened during the commercial, and what’s all the excitement about?
Jason Alexander makes appearance in Super Bowl LV commercial
Shortly prior to halftime, a commercial featuring Jason played. The commercial features a teenaged guy who refuses to wash his hoodie that has a photo of Jason printed on it. The commercial shows clips of everything that’s happened to the hoodie. The dog drools on it, food gets spilled on it, sweaty socks get thrown on top of it, and more. So, his mom obviously wants him to wash it.
The hoodie is animated and Jason’s facial expressions change as things happen. Jason spoke with US Weekly about the ad, explaining that he had to take “hundreds and hundreds of photographs making faces.”
At the end of the ad, Jason himself makes an appearance. He honks at the teenaged guy who’s now wearing his clean hoodie as he walks across the street. Jason yells, “Hey, that’s my face! You can’t just wear my face.” The guy replies, “My mom told me to say ‘I’m sorry.'” Then, Jason says, “Give me back my face!”
Who is Jason Alexander?
After watching the ad, fans struggled to remember who Jason is. They think he’s unrecognizable now. Well, Jason played George Costanza on Seinfeld. He’s now 61 years old. He looked much different when he was on the show, which ran from 1989 to 1998. Since then, viewers haven’t seen a lot of him. So, that’s likely why there is so much confusion over the ad. They don’t know what happened to him and why he’s changed so much.

In addition to fans reacting to the new commercial, Jason himself put out a tweet. He writes, “Ok, you *can* just wear my face. Contribute to a good cause for the chance to win the #TideHoodie.” Tide is giving away hoodies with a donation as a way to give back.
