Business Insider reported that, “to get the word out, Lincoln has bought its first-ever Super Bowl spot,” which, “will be written via social media, using Tweets curated by JimmyFallon.”

Almost two months before the Superbowl we’re already seeing celebrity involvement take on a new role. Last year’s game saw a plethora of social TV activations and celebrity involvement. Fallon who’s also been a social TV native seems to be having a lot of fun with this endorsement, built around #SteerTheScript. We’re looking forward to seeing Lincoln’s first Superbowl spot rise to the top of the charts, with it’s already built in social following.
