JuJu Smith-Schuster is one of the biggest stars in the NFL, and it's no secret that he has a huge brand. During the third quarter of Super Bowl LV between the Buccaneers and Chiefs, Smith-Schuster appeared in a Verizon commercial with Samuel L. Jackson.


The commercial was a promotion for customers to level-up to Verizon's 5G Ultra Wideband -- the fastest 5G in the world, with ultra-low latency. Smith-Schuster is a big gamer and Verizon promotes their product as it's built for gamers.


In the commercial, Jackson speaks to a crowd of gamers and tells them to not blame their losses on a lagging network. Jackson then directly tells JuJu that he doesn't want to hear any more excuses from him. JuJu then responds, "Oh yeah? (whistle) Bring my fish around." JuJu then comes riding on a shark that swallows Jackson from behind. It's pretty crazy.
