AceShowbiz - Carrie Bradshaw bumps into The Dude in the newly-unveiled Super Bowl ad for Stella Artois. The video ends the question of what Jeff Bridges is up to after teasing the return of his "The Big Lebowski" character by sharing the clip on Twitter.
In the full video, Sarah Jessica Parker as her "Sex and the City" character Carrie Bradshaw makes her entrance into a high-end restaurant first. Dressing to the nines like she usually is, she stuns everyone with her drink choice.
Not only disrupting the live music performance from string musicians, it also causes a ripple effect as a waitress bumps into another employee and breaks the glass and plates, explaining the mess seen in the previously released teaser as Bridges' The Dude steps into the same eatery.
Arriving at the bar, he also orders the same beverage which he pronounces as Stella Ar-toes, prompting more shock and chaos. Carrie then greets him, "Excuse me, good choice." He answers, "Well, changing can do a little good. Haha dude abides."
While the premise of the video is Carrie and The Dude trading Cosmopolitan and the White Russian for the beer, the ad is also promoting the brand's "Pour It Forward" campaign. Stella Artois is teaming up with Water.org and for every purchase of the beer, the company will make a donation to help provide clean water for someone in need.
Sharing the ad on his Twitter page, Bridges wrote along with it, "@SJP and I are bringing back some beloved characters with a twist, because thanks to @stellaartois and @water, when you change up the usual you can do good! #Ad #PourItForward Learn more at http://StellaArtois.com/DoGood."

As she makes her return as Carrie Bradshaw, SJP imagines her character's life now. "Well, my guess is that she and Big are New Yorkers and still involved," she says of Carrie's relationship with Mr. Big (Chris Noth). "I'm sure she's still writing. I'm sure she has a lot to write about given what's happened in this country over the last year and a half, two years, politically, socially. I think she would be deeply engaged in those conversations," she tells E! News.
Parker adds, "I think that she would still be a voracious reader and have maintained those friendships and I would hope that she and Big were enjoying their time together and still you know, in love and in like."
Of rumors that Mr. Big might be killed off in a possible third movie, she shares, "I think she would be devastated if her husband passed away. I think she would feel a great a loss in a partner and grateful for the time and memories they had. That would be my guess. I can't imagine her celebrating it, that's for sure."
The 53-year-old actress also talks about her experience reprising the role for the Super Bowl ad. "It was fun, it was joyful," she admits. "It was wonderfully strange because of this sort of alternate universe that's created where [The Dude] and Carrie find themselves in the same place, so there's sort of this, it sort of felt like literally an alternate universe in a great way...and the best of all was what we were doing it for and why…to support Water.org and Stella's partnership and these efforts to have an enormous impact globally, to help Americans you know shepherd them towards the same simple choice."
