James Franco plays the Daily Show’s Rob Riggle in Ford Super Bowl advert.  Franco starred alongside former Daily Show correspondent and comedian Rob Riggle in the 90-second Nearly Double commercial for the Ford Fusion Hybrid. Basically, Franco was playing an exaggerated version of Riggle – and even introduced himself in the ad saying: “Hi, I’m Rob Riggle.”
For the first 30 seconds of the ad, Rob had center stage, telling viewers: “This has never been done before in the history of commercials,î before boasting that the commercial is going to be double the length. So then Franco took over the next 60 seconds – and poked fun at everything Riggle had just done – for example where Riggle appeared sitting on a couch with a terrier on his lap, Franco appeared in stately room with a tiger sitting next to him. Riggle had children with sparklers lining his walkway, Franco had full fireworks. Riggle had a dandelion, Franco had a flower that when he leaned out of a window and blew over a flower, the car and street below were covered in petals. And finally as Riggle had birds fly around his car, Franco had a team of jetfighters flying overhead – with Riggle as the lead pilot.
