Squarespace's Super Bowl Ad Features So Many Adam Drivers
UPDATED FEB. 9 WITH FULL SPOT:

If there was an Ad Meter that ranked Super Bowl teasers, this one would place extremely high. It's a fun, twisty promo/BTS reel that provides plenty of entertainment. Heck, it's as enjoyable as the actual ad. Maybe more so.

"This year will be Squarespace's 20th anniversary and we found our initial inspiration in its origin story."
