What a spectacle the Super Bowl is! Audiences from every part of the country and beyond have their eyes on this spectacular event, and they are there not only for the game but for the headline-spinning intrigue playing off the pitch too.

People were excited to see the trailer for the much-hyped Deadpool 3, as well as the entertaining performances of some of the biggest stars in the country. What also attracts plenty of attention are the commercials, which are always eagerly anticipated.

According to many, one of the more surprising commercials of the night featured actor Mark Wahlberg as he teamed up with actor Jonathan Roumie from TBN’s The Chosen.

The two promoted the Catholic app Hallow. In the 30-second-long commercial, Wahlberg could be heard saying, “God, we take this moment just to give You thanks.” Next, a message appeared on screen, saying: “For the first time ever, join over 100 million people in prayer during Super Bowl LVIII.”

In a press release ahead of the commercial’s airing, Hallow co-founder and CEO Alex Jones said: “The goal at Hallow has always been to reach out to as many folks as possible, both those who take their faith seriously and especially those who might have fallen away, and invite them deeper into a relationship with God.

“When we learned about the timing of the Big Game this year, we couldn’t have been more excited to work with Mark and Jonathan to use it as an opportunity to invite millions into prayer.”

Since its launch in 2018, the Hallow app that offers prayer on-the-go has proven popular and has been downloaded 10 million times across 150 countries 

Wahlberg has spoken of his faith before and said during various occasions that he’s a devoted Christian.

“I don’t want to jam it down anybody’s throat, but I do not deny my faith. That’s an even bigger sin,” he said last year.

“You know, it’s not popular in my industry, but I cannot deny my faith. It’s important for me to share that with people. But I have friends from all walks of life and all different types of faith and religions, so it’s important to respect and honor them as well.”

It’s not that anyone has ever judged him for his faith, on the contrary, many appreciate him for speaking of his faith openly, but most found the Super Bowl commercial featuring him embarrassing.

Congrats to Mark Wahlberg for making sure that Ben Affleck didn’t embarrass Boston the most this Super Bowl,” one person commented.

A second wrote: “Somehow the Mark Wahlberg as is atop my leaderboard of weirdest Super Bowl commercials so far.”

A third added: “Did I just hear Mark Wahlberg say ‘stay prayed up’?”

What do you think of the commercial?
