At least two heads shorter than Pratt, the cashier known only as Jamie matter-of-factly tells him he looks like the Pringles guy and conspicuously snaps a photo of him holding the tube bearing the mustachioed logo. After Jamie immediately posts the image online, Pratt, dubious of the resemblance, finds out how wrong he is as socials go wild remarking on it, the logo is capable of using Face-ID to open his phone, and (as ad imitates life) movie producers fall over themselves to cast him as the star in Mr. P, a movie about the man behind the logo.
Pratt brings little more to the role than being a hirsute recognizable face, and the butt of the meta-joke of his being Hollywood’s go-to guy. While the person playing Jamie (who appears to be an unknown at this point) is the crux of the comedy in the ad, we may be too close to the truth when they ask Pratt, as both stare at the billboard of him in the role of Mr. P, “Do I get a cut?” to which Pratt’s response is to offer Jamie a chip. Small potatoes indeed.
