Yesterday we reported that Robert Downey Jr. would be voicing the monocled legume Mr. Peanut in a new commercial for Planters. Today we have that very commercial. It appears it’s taking its stylistic cues from Wes Anderson‘s The Fantastic Mr. Fox, with Downey filling in for Clooney. I’m also not certain why a peanut would remain friends with a nutcracker, especially if said nutcracker tried to murder him at his last get together, but I guess some are more forgiving than others. The person who cracked my skull open many moons ago I no longer consider an acquaintance. (ThePlaylist)

What a crappy Make a Wish.

Mr. Peanut is getting a makeover, and Robert Downey Jr. will be the man behind the shell, in a voicing capacity. $35 million dollars will go into making the Planters mascot tastier. Mr. Peanut will also get a new sidekick who the ad agency would like you to know is not interested in his boss’s nuts: “Benson is quite enamored of Mr. Peanut,’ Mr. Levine said, but they are, as the saying goes, just friends. Benson does not live in Mr. Peanut’s house, Mr. Wixom said.” This should be familiar territory for Downey Jr. After playing Sherlock Holmes, the actor is no stranger to ambiguous right-hand men. Watson gives him those looks sometimes, and it’s not just because he has an astigmatism. (Vulture)
