Jennifer Coolidge is having quite the year. After winning the 2023 Golden Globe for her role as the fan-favorite character Tanya in The White Lotus, she’s back on screen in another impressive role.

The star partnered with e.l.f. Cosmetics for the company’s debut television commercial, which is set to air during the second quarter of Super Bowl LVII on Feb. 12. The new ad, promoting e.l.f.’s best-selling Power Grip Primer, was even written with the help of The White Lotus writer and director Mike White.


The sneak peek clip starts out with the Emmy-winning actress reading from a card while sitting at her vanity, which is filled with e.l.f. products. “Get ready for prime time. Love, your superfans at e.l.f.” she says. Coolidge applies Power Grip Primer, before looking shocked in the mirror. “Oh my gosh,” she whispers in her instantly recognizable breathy voice. “Looks like I came from the sea! I look like a dolphin…like a baby dolphin!” exclaims Coolidge before breaking into her best squealing dolphin impression.

If you don’t quit get where a dolphin comes into play, Coolidge talked about her dream role on the carpet at the 2023 Golden Globe Awards and proclaimed: “I’ve always wanted to play a dolphin.”

In the commercial, the Legally Blonde star plays off of the viral reaction to her meme-worthy response. In the teaser clip, Coolidge says, “This primer stud sure is sticky. I’m so dewy, people are going to complain!” That makes her and the crew on-set start cracking up laughing.

We can’t wait to view the full clip but in the meantime, you can get that dewy “dolphin” look with e.l.f.’s Power Grip Primer.
