Oikos Super Bowl Ad Likely Won't Satisfy Full House Fans Rehash of 2012 spot remains Stamos-centric

If Dannon's Super Bowl ad teaser left you hoping for a Full House-themed spot in the big game, you're probably going to be disappointed.

The Oikos Greek yogurt ad starring John Stamos is now live on YouTube, and, as you can see below, the anticipated appearance by fellow sitcom stars Bob Saget and Dave Coulier barely even registers as a punch line.

In fact, the ad largely plays out the same as 2012's Oikos Super Bowl spot, focused on Stamos romantically sharing a yogurt with a ladyfriend. But this time, instead of getting headbutted, he gets cockblocked (sorry, mom, there's no other word for it) by his Full Housemates.

For a :30, it's a lot of setup without much payoff. But then again, the same could be said of Stamos' multiple attempts at dairy-centric seduction.

If you're still craving more Stamos-Saget-Coulier shenanigans, check out Dannon's "Bromance" microsite, where you can find a few low-budget clips of the TV uncles clowning around. Or just cross your fingers and hope that the 2015 Super Bowl's inevitable Family Matters reunion turns out more fulfilling.
