The actor was seen dancing and doing roundhouse kicks in the kitchen while preparing breakfast for his daughter. In the background, viewers could hear James Brown’s iconic I Got You (I Feel Good) music.

It was revealed that for the commercial, the actor had performed his stunts, which included leaping onto the counter and kicking the cap off a jug. The commercial became one of the most talked about commercials from Super Bowl as it marked an essential landmark for the actor following his accident in January 2023. Jeremy Renner survived a 14300-pound snowplow running over his lower body, which gave him several orthopaedic injuries.
