Napoleon Dynamite and Pedro Reunite for Clever Burger King Commercial

Subscribe to TheFW on

A dozen years after they became cult figures, Napoleon Dynamite and Pedro are still pals.

Jon Heder and Efren Ramirez reprise their iconic roles from Napoleon Dynamite in this new commercial for Burger King’s Cheesy Tots which will have you hungry for some fast food and even hungrier for 2004.

The ad spoofs their popular lunchroom scene from the movie, making this a Whopper-sized success. Kudos to these guys for embracing the parts that made them famous and not running away from them. They may go on to win an Oscar, but you somehow get the sense they’ll always be identified as these characters. Consider this a career lesson from Mark-Paul Gosselaar, who will go down in history as Zack from Saved by the Bell no matter how hard he may try.

We love this spot. In terms of shrewd advertising, it’s up there with Sprint hijacking Verizon’s “Can you hear me now?” guy.
