Blake Shelton said he enjoyed filming a Super Bowl commercial for T-mobile, with his fiancée Gwen Stefani and "The Voice" pal, Adam Levine. The ad, which pokes fun at Shelton, has been a huge hit with fans.
As far as Blake Shelton's concerned, his latest Super Bowl ad with T-mobile has provided the perfect explanation to those who've always been confused about why Gwen Stefani, a modern pop sensation, is with him - an understated country boy.
The ad begins with Stefani having a Facetime chat with Levine, outlining the type of man she wants to date. Stefani states she's looking for someone "cultured," "maybe from another country," and who doesn't mind a "strong, confident woman."
Due to a bad cell phone reception, Levine hears "uncultured" and "country." At this point, Shelton approaches Levine, raving about how the restaurant they're having lunch at has nachos and wings. Levine tells Stefani he's found her the right guy.
Fast forward to date night when Stefani and Shelton meet, where she is horrified to learn Shelton arrived on a horse. That's when the narrator says not to entrust your love life to unreliable networks. Shelton said he enjoyed making the ad, saying:
"When I read the script, I thought it was a great idea. I thought it was so funny."
The country crooner said his phone wouldn't stop buzzing the entire night following the commercial. He jokingly compared the attention he received from the commercial with winning an award, saying everyone he knows watched the ad.
Indeed, when Shelton, 44, and Stefani, 51, began dating after meeting on the reality TV show, some thought it an unlikely match. This ad has just reminded fans how endearing Shelton is and how much they adore the popular couple.
Shelton thanked Stefani for rescuing his 2020.
After the ad aired, both Stefani and Blake took to their social media, with Stefani sharing the video on her Twitter. Shelton remained comical in his post, writing in the caption that the quickest way to a woman's heart was through wings.
When asked whether Shelton enjoyed reuniting with Levine, 41, with whom they share a friendly rival on "The Voice," Shelton's response was exactly what you would expect, as he jokingly said:
"No. Gotta suffer for my art."
When the couple met, they developed a strong connection to each other since both had just ended their marriages. Stefani had called it quits with Gavin Rossdale, while Shelton had just divorced Miranda Lambert.
Then on 27 October 2020, Shelton delighted fans when he Tweeted a pic of the pair kissing, with Stefani flashing an engagement ring. In his caption, Shelton thanked Stefani for rescuing his year, which the pandemic had marred.
The reaction to the T-mobile ad has been great, as evidenced by the comments from fans. One commenter wrote it was a great thing that both Stefani and Shelton had answered the call to join "The Voice," as it brought them together.
Several other YouTube commenters raved about the brilliance of the ad, with one commenter giving credit to T-mobile, adding that they would definitely be changing their network provider as a result.
