Super Bowl Sunday had something for everyone. There was Tom Brady for football fans, The Weekend's halftime show for pop fans , and, of course, heavily produced commercials to entertain everyone.

This year's extravaganza featured several great ads, but one in particular struck us: Fiverr -- a platform for freelance workers -- riffed on the Four Seasons Total Landscaping fiasco, titled "Opportunity Knocks."

To refresh your memory, Four Seasons Total Landscaping was where Rudy Giuliani held an election misinformation press conference that was meant to be held at a Four Seasons hotel.

It's a choice bit of comedy, so enjoy!
