Miller Lite announced the debut of a new commercial starring three well-known African-American actors. The national commercial, titled “PopPop,” features comedy legend Garrett Morris of “Saturday Night Live” fame alongside actors Stacey Dash and Jason Weaver. The commercial takes a light-hearted look at a family relationship with Morris playing the grandfather, PopPop, and Weaver as his grandson.
The new 30-second spot launched 3/25 during a busy sports window — the men’s college basketball finals, the push towards the pro basketball playoffs and the start of baseball season. MillerCoors’ Scott Bussen tells RBR-TVBR the spot will air on a variety of sports broadcasts, including NBA and MLB games, as well as various cable entertainment networks.
