I bet you thought World domination was inevitable, huh? Well, it’s not, due to some new 2022 General Motors Super Bowl commercial from Dr. Evil. The evil genius has been making progress slowly but surely by dominating the big game ads this year so far.

After 20 years of waiting, Mike Myers can finally team up with his “Austin Powers” co-stars for a 60-second appearance. 

Dr. Evil talks not from his volcano hideout but in the General Motors HQ high-rise in the ad. He announces that he will take control of the carmaker with the help of his confidant Number 2 (played by Rob Lowe) following the persuasion of his son Scott Evil (played by Seth Green) and assistant Frau Farbissina (played by Mindy Sterling) for him to save the world by reducing carbon footprint with GM’s electric vehicles.

Myers did a compelling performance of “My Lovin’ (You’re Never Gonna Get It),” 1992’s fashionable success, before ending up in his role in the “Austin Powers” franchise as Kyle, Scott’s son – or as Dr. Evil calls him, “Baby Me.”

NBC, the channel airing Super Bowl this year, has said that its 30-second commercials were selling for about $7 million, that’s beyond the “one-million-dollar” Dr. Evil ransom.

Companies such as Hellmann’s, featuring Pete Davidson, Squarespace, starring Zendaya, and Planet Fitness, with Lindsay Lohan, have issued their Super Bowl ads.

The Super Bowl L VI starts Sunday, February 13 on NBC at 6:30 p.m. ET/PT.
