Dave Grohl Is Feeling Truly Grateful In Crown Royal's 2023 Super Bowl Ad
By Elaina Friedman
If you're someone who tunes in to the Super Bowl just for the ads, you might be aware that some brands are giving teasers for their commercials before the big event this year. Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl will head up an ad for Canadian whisky brand Crown Royal, expressing pure gratitude.
In a trailer for a new commercial released on February 2, 2023, Dave Grohl takes a break from mixing tunes with his fellow Foo Fighters in Studio 606 to express his appreciation for his surroundings. He thanks the ice in his Crown Royal whiskey, his music gear, and his flannel "for keeping the grunge dream alive," harking back to his days as the drummer for Nirvana.
Crown Royal has championed live music venues in the past, so it's only natural that the brand would choose music-industry mainstay Dave Grohl as the face of its Super Bowl ad. Crown Royal spokesperson Sophie Kelly called Grohl a "Crown Royal super fan," adding that he's "the perfect partner to spread a message of gratitude to the audience that is authentic to the brand."
