Matthew Wilkas Scores Role in Super Bowl 53 Ad

Actor Matthew Wilkas, who is also known for his relationship with longtime boyfriend Gus Kenworthy, has scored a major role in a Super Bowl 53 ad.

The ad, produced by Pepsi, takes place in a diner and also features other celebrities like Cardi BSteve Carell and Lil Jon.

Pepsi, who titled the ad "More Than OK", begins with Steve flipping out on a waiter who asked a customer if Pepsi was OK. He demonstrates that the product is more than that by utilizing Cardi and Jon to say the word "OK" in their historic kind of way.

Matthew can be seen in the background as Cardi makes her way inside the diner. It's something that his decorated Olympian boyfriend gushed about on his Twitter this week.

 

 

"I hate to flex but you see that guy in the background?" Gus tweeted. "The one that's completely out of focus at the bar?? Well... THAT'S MY BOYFRIEND!!!"

 

 

Several Super Bowl ads have already been released on social media, notably Sarah Jessica Parker reprising her role as Carrie Bradshaw from Sex and the City for Stella Artois.
