Many people binged The Sopranos during the pandemic—so much so that The New York Times investigated why it was happening. Whether it was due to its nostalgic comforts, a lack of present-day offerings, a desire to catch up on something they’ve missed or in anticipation of prequel film The Many Saints of Newark is anyone’s guess, but one thing is for sure: a whole lot of people revisited Tony and the gang (this writer included).
On Super Bowl Sunday, Chevy attempted to mine this recent groundswell with its commercial for the new all-electric Chevy Silverado by recreating the iconic opening credits to the HBO series—only this time, we see Tony’s surviving daughter Meadow Soprano (Jamie-Lynn Sigler) recreating his commute from Manhattan to New Jersey, as Alabama 3’s “Woke Up This Morning” plays in the background.
After passing by Satriale’s Pork Store and a number of other Sopranos landmarks, we see her reunite with another cast member. RIP James Gandolfini.
