The Manning family is back at it again, this time starring in a brand new Frito-Lay commercial entitled, “Twas the Night Before Super Bowl.”
In addition to retired New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning, Peyton Manning and Archie Manning, the ad spot also features Marshawn Lynch, Jerry Rice, Joe Montana, Troy Aikman, Terry Bradshaw and Jerome Bettis.
“I think it’s always fun when you get to film a commercial with your brother and your dad,” Eli told PEOPLE. “So thankful for Frito-Lay bringing us together and having us do something that was kind of natural. Just playing a little game of burnout is what we called it.”
A few short weeks ago, Archie hinted that a new commercial similar to their previous ESPN spots was on the way, and like those, this did not disappoint.

Adding to the humor, Eli also informed PEOPLE that they didn’t need wardrobe to come up with their matching pajamas. Rather, and somewhat embarrassingly, they already owned them.
“It was kind of embarrassing that Peyton and I had matching pajamas, coincidentally,” Eli said.
The two-time Super Bowl MVP also found the opportunity to expand upon his recent Sloppy Joe love, noting that Lays chips and Sloppy Joes go together like, well… Lays and Sloppy Joes.
Ultimately, it was another win for the Manning family. The commercial was hilarious and they got to spend some time together, which has been a rarity due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We’ve pretty much stayed close to home here in New Orleans and Peyton’s been in Denver and Eli up in New Jersey. So we all met out in L.A. And that was fun to get to see them,” Archie said.
