Abe Lincoln is apparently alive and well and living in suburbia in a Super Bowl campaign for Pizza Hut’s $5 Lineup, perfect for game day.

The initial work coming from Pizza Hut’s partnership with its new agency of record, GSD&M, some of which is slated to debut on Super Bowl Sunday, features Mr. Five Dollar Bill himself. In the spots, Lincoln is a husband and father who, through the use of quirky humor and relatable situations, brings to life the variety of offerings that customers can get at Pizza Hut for “just a Lincoln each.”

In spots running now, Lincoln asks his family to “behold the power of the $5 bill.” Looking for respect and admiration from his kids and wife, he finds none.

In the continuation of the story during two spots to run during the game, Abe still gets no respect from his game party friends, nor his son, whom he is playing video games with in front of a table full of Pizza Hut snacks. While Lincoln shows what the $5 can buy, his son states to him, “You’re dead.”
