Crocodile Dundee 2 trailer: The Super Bowl ad is actually an ad for Australia tourism

There was still a chance, however, to sneak in a quick cameo from original Dundee, Paul Hogan

Chris Hemsworth and Danny McBride star in funny Australia tourism Super Bowl advert

Not that this fact will likely disappoint anyone, but Crocodile Dundee 2 isn't real.

Weeks of teasers and trailers - star-studded with the likes of Hugh Jackman, Margot Robbie, Russell Crowe, Ruby Rose, Liam Hemsworth, Isla Fisher, Luke Bracey, and Jessica Mauboy - finally led to the truth at this year's Super Bowl.

An ad in which Chris Hemsworth took the apparent "Son of Dundee", Danny McBride, for a tour of Australia's truest delights - from the beaches to the wineries, seeing McBride pause and ask, "This isn't a movie?"

In fact, the whole charade was part of an ad campaign for Tourism Australia, though the final reveal did still manage to include a quick cameo from the original Dundee himself, Paul Hogan.

Not that the Super Bowl was lacking in actual film trailers: from the first spot for Solo: A Star Wars Story to Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, Avengers: Infinity War to the surprise-dropped Cloverfield Paradox.
