The cost of airing a 30-second commercial during the Super Bowl this year is a staggering $7 million.

DraftKings has established itself as a regular Super Bowl advertiser, with this marking the third consecutive year they have invested millions for a commercial spot.

In a recent interview with People magazine, Hart discussed his collaboration with DraftKings and how he managed to bring together numerous big names for one commercial.

“We were able to leverage some connections, secure some major appearances, deliver the message spot-on, all while adding a huge amount of personality and fun to what I believe will be a truly distinctive spot during the Super Bowl,” Hart mentioned.

The comedic actor emphasized the importance of nurturing relationships in the industry, expressing pride in the fact that his calls are always answered by those he has built connections with over the years.

Hart’s ad for DraftKings is just one of many star-studded commercials airing this year during the Super Bowl. Pete Davidson teamed up with Brie Larson and Jon Hamm to promote Hellmann’s mayonnaise, while Adam Driver showcased his versatility by battling dinosaurs in an ad for his upcoming sci-fi movie 65 and appearing multiple times in a humorous Squarespace commercial. Sylvester Stallone also made a comeback as his Cliffhanger character for Paramount +, seen scaling a mountain shaped like his own face.

The commercial then cuts to the actual Ludacris, who is inside the party speculating about Hart's betting strategy by saying that he is 'taking the under'

In the ad, it quickly switches to Ludacris at the party, discussing Hart’s approach to betting by mentioning that he’s “going with the lower odds.”

'The under?' says Hart, popping up out of nowhere. 'Please. I ain't no ¿ Undertaker!' Confronted by the real Undertaker, Hart gazes up at the giant wrestler before he turns back to Ludacris and snaps: 'Hey! I'm watching you like a ¿ '

“The dude from down there?” Hart quips as he suddenly appears. “Nah, I’m not some kind of Undertaker!” Startled by the actual Undertaker’s presence, Hart looks up at the towering wrestler, then quickly redirects his attention to Ludacris, saying, “I’ve got my eye on you, just like a hawk.”

'Hawk,' says Tony Hawk, giving his name to the bouncer at the front door of Hart's party. 'Tony Hawk? Like the bird'

“Tony Hawk,” Tony Hawk says to the bouncer as he enters Hart’s party, affirming his identity with a touch of humor. “Tony Hawk? You know, like the majestic bird.”
