“NFL commissioner Roger Goodell also starred in the commercial, and even ‘Who’s Ninja?’ to which Manning responded by referring to the streamer as a ‘video game master.’ Ninja starring in a commercial for the Super Bowl speaks to his transcendent mainstream influence, as well as that of Fortnite and video gaming,” reports FOX Sports Asia.
