Video: CarMax Super Bowl "Slow Clap" Commercial Pays Homage To Rudy, Notre Dame

Very cool.

The Super Bowl may be the world championship between the two best professional football teams, but that doesn't mean that the commercials can't have a little love for the college game. CarMax has pre-released the ad that it will run on Super Bowl Sunday, which pays homage to the "slow clap" scene that everyone loves in Rudy. It even has a cameo by Sean Astin, who played the legendary Rudy Ruettiger in the film. Notre Dame fans will be sure to enjoy it:

Here's the scene from the movie:

There is also a puppy version of the commercial, which appeals to a much different demographic. We'll see if CarMax hits it big next week.
