Turbo Tax enlisted actor Anthony Hopkins for its 2016 Super Bowl commercial. Anthony is being interviewed as an award-winning actor who has resisted the temptation to sell out in his career. Or so we thought.
Anthony says, “I would never tarnish my name by selling you something,” then lifts a teacup to his mouth with the Turbo Tax logo. He’s also wearing blue slippers promoting the tax service. Anthony calls his dog over and she jumps into his lap. The dog is wearing a Turbo Tax sweater. Anthony pets her and claims to have “way more integrity” than to sell out. Obviously.
