Smiling and waving from a red convertible alongside Mickey Mouse in the shadow of Cinderella Castle, Flacco – named the game’s Most Valuable Player — greeted cheering Magic Kingdom guests along a parade route lined with colorful red, white and blue balloons. Cheerleaders, Disney characters in football gear and a Florida blizzard – of confetti — completed the festive scene as Flacco quarterbacked another drive, this time down Main Street, U.S.A.
Flacco was one of the game’s standout players, firing three first-half touchdown strikes en route to 287 total passing yards. It capped a remarkable post-season in which Flacco connected on 11 TD passes, throwing no interceptions.
Flacco’s declaration became the 26th Super Bowl commercial aired in the Disney series that began in 1987 by New York Giants quarterback Phil Simms following Super Bowl XXI. Phil Simms was one of the announcers calling Joe Flacco’s MVP performance in Super Bowl XLVII.
