Superstar Twitch streamer Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins will be adding an appearance in a Super Bowl commercial to his already impressive resume of accomplishments.

The popular gaming personality announced on January 31 that he will be featuring in an ad that is to be played during the upcoming 53rd Super Bowl. 


The contest, which is one of the biggest sporting spectacles in the world, is set to take place on Sunday, February 3, starting at 3:30 PM PT / 5:30 PM ET / 1:30 AM GMT (Feb 4).

According to Ninja, the ad will air sometime before the halftime break, which would put it approximately near the 5:00 PM PT / 8:00 PM ET mark.


“So happy to share with you guys one of the many amazing things we’ve been working on and why I’ve been traveling so much,” he said in a tweet that also included a sneak peek of the ad. 


NinjaNinja was able to make last minute travel arrangements and will be attending Super Bowl 53.

Judging from the clip, the commercial is stacked with some of the biggest names in NFL history, both past and present, including the likes of Peyton Manning, Michael Strahan, Aaron Donald, and Commissioner Roger Goodell.

Also appearing in the commercial is Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Juju Smith-Schuster, a member of FaZe Clan and an avid Fortnite player. 


The clip features Ninja, who’s dressed in a sharp white tuxedo, making an appearance at an NFL event, and the star-studded crowd can all be heard whispering his name in awe of his presence. 


This commercial is yet another chapter of the NFL’s growing relationship with gaming content creators. In the past, the NFL has partnered up with prominent streamers like Ninja, TimTheTatman, NICKMERCS, and others to bring live NFL games to Twitch viewers. 

Additionally, Super Bowl themed festivities will be taking place in Fortnite Battle Royale, including the release of specially marked New England Patriots and Los Angeles Rams jerseys as in-game outfit skins.
