Planters Kills Off Iconic Mascot, Mr. Peanut

Ah nuts.

In a move that shocked us all, Planters has killed off their beloved mascot, Mr. Peanut.

He was 104 years old.

Though fans can rest assured as Mr. Peanut died doing what he loved – again, probably, we don’t know a lot about the 104-year-old snack-scot – helping his friends Matt Walsh and Wesley Snipes.

From what I can tell in the video, Peanut was driving the Nutmobile with Walsh and Snipes  when an armadillo walked into the road, causing him to swerve and drive off of a canyon. The trio held on for life by hanging on a branch before it began to break. In an attempt to lessen the weight and save his friends, Peanut let go.

Planters has announced that the funeral for Mr Peanut will air during a Super Bowl commercial in the third quarter of the game.

However, there have been speculations that he may still be alive.

I guess we’ll find out at this year’s Super Bowl.
