Sculpture from Appears In Super Bowl Ad

This year’s Super Bowl attracted 111.5 million viewers around the world. It was the most watched Super Bowl game in history, with 30-second spots costing advertisers an average of $4 million. Participating companies had a huge investment in getting their message right. With this in mind, powerhouse production company, MJZ, turned to to assist with a prop for their commercial, Wonderful Pistachios- Part 1.

The commercial, starring TV personality, Stephen Colbert, features a replica of the iconic, white marble “Discus Thrower” sculpture anchoring the back-right corner of the scene. The scale of the statue, as well as the stark contrast of the white marble against the dark, wood-paneled walls, perfectly balances the aesthetics of the set.

Although this is the first Super Bowl commercial has participated in, we are not new to the scene. With a unique and extensive selection of sculptures and home decor, has been a source for many set designers on TV shows and movies, most recently on the TV show “Grimm”.

When filming a movie, TV show, or commercial, often the final version of a scene will be determined with little time to spare before shooting. This sometimes leaves set designers scrambling to find the perfect props to complete an artistic vision. Over the years, has worked with many set designers and often become the go-to source when a designer is in need of a unique piece on short notice. We are always more than happy to provide ideas that work with a particular style, timeframe and budget. It is not always easy, but very rewarding for us at the end of the day to see how our products are used in creative productions.
