Psy goes nuts for pistachios in Super Bowl ad


LOS ANGELES (AFP) - South Korean rapper Psy is going nuts.

Not content with starring in the most-watched video in YouTube history, the man behind viral hit Gangnam Style is to appear in a Super Bowl commercial for... pistachios.

"The Wonderful Pistachios brand is fun, just like me," Psy said on Wednesday by way of a press release from Paramount Farms, which owns the upmarket California snack label.

"Also, I love pistachios and I look good in green." It will be Wonderful Pistachios' first spot ever during the Super Bowl, the annual American football classic, set for Feb 3 this year, that is also the most coveted showcase for commercials on US television.
