The greatest day in sports will soon be upon us: This Sunday, the Denver Broncos will face off against the Seattle Seahawks in Super Bowl XLVIII at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J. If you’re a football fan, you already knew all that. And if you’re not, you probably don’t care.

Well, Peyton Manning is here to change that. You don’t need to study his stats or read up on why cold weather could hurt his chances, nothing like that. Instead, in five short clips, he’ll convince you he deserves your support by mastering the second most important part of Sunday’s match-up: the commercials.

Manning has become synonymous with the many comedic TV spots he’s filmed over the years. Here, we present his five best:

1. MasterCard Commercial

What would it be like if everyday people had fans to cheer them on at work? Pretty great.

2. Sprint Commercial

This commercial doubles as an advertisement for the adage “If you want something done right, do it yourself.”


To bring out his best work, Manning sometimes joins forces with brother Eli, who told PEOPLE, “We don’t get to see each other that often … Doing a commercial together will bring us to the same city.” To mark the reunion, they rap.

4. Oreo Commercial

Other times, the Manning brothers get competitive, and face off against fellow famous siblings.

5. SNL Digital Short

But as Saturday Night Live proves, Manning’s competitive streak can sometimes be a bad thing, especially when kids are involved.
