Playing the part of an enthusiastic infomercial host, Queer Eye’s Jonathan Van Ness stars in Pop-Tarts’ 30-second Super Bowl spot, which was created by MRY and released today.

The playful, bright-smiling, hair-flipping role is perfect for Van Ness, who asks viewers, “Are you tired of pretzels not being Pop-Tarts toaster pastries? Are you struggs to snack?”

In an over-the-top transformation, along with a costume change, the screen goes from a sad black and white to a bright and glittery technicolor as Van Ness assures snackers that “Pop-Tarts fixed that for you!”
