Local Super Bowl commercials feature Redskins great Joe Jacoby, boxer Mike Tyson

- Two local Super Bowl 50 commercials were a real hit during Sunday’s broadcast of the big game.

The popular former Washington Redskins offensive lineman Joe Jacoby stared in an ad for Virginia’s Cyprus Air selling gas fireplaces.

Jacoby holds an ax during the final scene where it’s jokingly implied that he chopped off the fingers of a wood burning fireplace owner.

Mike Tyson and his son Amir were featured in a comical commercial for D.C. area plumber Michael and Son.

Amir plays a boxer being punished by his opponent until dad steps in to save the day. The elder Tyson throws a punch at the camera and also sings the company’s popular jungle.



If you’re wondering, the local businesses didn’t pay millions for their ads like national companies did. They did, however, pay an increased rate.
