The 90-second ad – an extended version from the 60-second spot that will run during the first quarter of the big game – begins with a bearded Ferrell dropping some EV knowledge. 

‘Did you know that Norway sells way more electric cars per capita than the U.S.? Norway!’ Ferrell says with a laugh, before turning angry.

He grunts and punches through the globe, saying he, ‘won’t stand for it,’ though he cannot get the globe off of his fist.

The funnyman decided to let it go and hopped in his Cadillac, adding that, ‘With GM’s new Ultimum Battery, we’re gonna crush those lugers.’

He pulls up to Kenan Thompson’s house, who is dressed up like a pirate, as Ferrell tells him, ‘Kenan, Norway’s out-EV-ing us,’ before asking about his outfit.

‘Oh it’s my daughter’s birthday. She’s really into pirates,’ though Ferrell interrupts and adds, ‘I don’t care,’ asking him to ‘grab an EV and meet me in Norway,’ while denying him permission to say goodbye to his family.

His next stop is at Awkwafina’s house, who is practicing her archery skills when Ferrell tells her that, ‘Norway is beating us in EVs.’

While she refuses to believe this stat, Ferrell convinces her by catching a few of her arrows before telling her to meet him in an hour, while declining her a ride.

Ferrell explains that GM’s Ultium Battery is, ‘made for all types of vehicles so soon everyone can drive an EV.’

Ferrell drives his Cadillac into a shipping container that’s set out to sea, while Awkwafina asks why they didn’t all go together, with Thompson adding Ferrell is probably, ‘flying private.’

‘OK Norway, listen up you fish-loving…’ Ferrell begins, before taking a glimpse at his surroundings and calming down immediately.

‘Oh, this place is adorable. Damn it,’ he adds, before getting a phone call from Kenan and Awkwafina.
