Just when you thought his career and influence as a gamer may have peaked, the groundbreaking streamer does it again. Tyler “Ninja” Blevins has broken another barrier as it’s been revealed he will take part and be seemingly the centerpiece of a Super Bowl LIII ad featuring some monumental names.
The ad which has been shared around Twitter was revealed on January 31. The teaser shows Ninja clad in a white tuxedo at an NFL event made up of well-known faces from the sports’ scene including JuJu Smith-Schuster, a wide receiver for the Pittsburgh Steelers and member of FaZe Clan.
The cast of characters seem to be star-struck, whispering comments such as “Wow, Ninja’s here” and “Hey Peyton, is that Ninja?” Even Roger Goodell is part of the commercial, asking the crowd from the stage “who’s Ninja?” to which legendary quarterback Peyton Manning responds “video game master.”
