Super Bowl 44 is in the books, but the water cooler talk about all the high priced commercials continues.
One of the most popular commercials was a Snickers ad that featured Betty White and Abe Vigoda.
The guy tackling America's beloved Golden Girl is Brad Sorenson from San Luis Obispo. The Cal Poly student is also a part-time Hollywood stuntman.
"I didn't realize it would be number one, it's awesome. It was awesome working with Betty White, she's a card," Sorenson said.
Sorenson also said White was not only a card in the commercial, but off camera as well. Especially when the two shared a moment in the mud puddle.
"She's like, man I used to be able to do this without all this direction. She's always making cracks, cracking jokes. I helped her up and she's like, was it good for you. She's pretty cool," Sorenson added.
As for upsetting the entire nation and delivering a crushing blow to the 88 year-old Betty White, Sorenson says there was a stunt double standing in for White who took the hit. But, get this... She, was Annie Ellis who is in her 50's, and took that tackle like a champ.
"She's not 88, but she's not 19 or 20." Sorenson said.
Sorenson also said it was a thrill working with Betty White and Abe Vigoda, and he's definitely satisfied with how the commercial turned out.
Several online polls voted the Snickers commercial as the best super bowl commercial this year.
Sorenson has also been a stunt man on the television show Friday Night Lights, and he has worked in a few movies as well.
