Procter & Gamble’s Mr. Clean shows ‘sexy side’ in Super Bowl commercial

Procter & Gamble’s Mr. Clean will air in a 30-second Super Bowl clip, that shows “few things are sexier than a man who cleans,” according to the Cincinnati-headquartered company.

The company announced a commercial featuring the iconic cleaner will play during the third quarter of the game on Feb. 5. The commercial features Mr. Clean with “his white t-shirt a little tighter, his muscles are musclier and his bald head is somehow even sexier,” Procter & Gamble said in a news release.
