Mr. Peanut Dies At The Age Of 104 In A Super Bowl Commercial
By Salvador Ramirez on January 24, 2020
While traveling with funnyman Matt Walsh and actor Wesley Snipes through a windy desert road this past Wednesday, the Nutmobile Mr. Peanut was riding in careened off a cliff, sending the Planters mascot to his death. Mr. Peanut’s estate has confirmed his death at the age of 104 in a tweet, and footage of the tragedy was posted on YouTube.
All of this, naturally, has to do with Planters’ Super Bowl advertising campaign, which will culminate in the airing of Mr. Peanut’s funeral during the third quarter of the Super Bowl. His “death” drew a slew of amused reactions on Twitter.

We, too, would sacrifice it all for the nut #RIPeanut (a real one).

Mr Peanut represented the elite. the 1%. He became rich by selling the bodies of his brothers. And now that the life has drained from his body, I can complete my promise to eat the rich.
