Ah, memories. Napoleon Dynamite and Pedro reunited for a Burger King commercial featuring the fast-food joint’s new menu item, cheesy tater tots, which debuted on Tuesday, November 29.
The pair — played by actors Jon Heder and Efren Ramirez — look all grown up with sweaters and facial hair, compared to their 2004 alter egos in the cult classic, as they enjoy a meal together at one of the chain’s many locations.
“Whoa. Are those cheesy tots?” Heder-as-Napoleon says in the TV spot as Ramirez-as-Pedro is about to bite into a crispy delight. “Yeah,” Pedro responds.
“Are those good?” Napoleon asks, keeping Pedro from the satisfying crunch. “Yeah,” Pedro responds again, getting annoyed.
“Can I have one?” Napoleon asks. “Sure,” Pedro says before Napoleon reaches over and scoops an entire handful of the fried goodies. He adds insult to injury by snatching the lone tot Pedro had raised to his lips and munching on that one first.
In the 2004 film, the pair are big fans of the cafeteria’s tater tots, and Napoleon is known for sneaking out fistfuls of the stuff in his zippered jean pockets. One now-iconic scene shows the awkward high schooler trying to snack on the tots while taking a test in class.
When one of his classmates asks him for a tot, Napoleon declines, and is summarily kicked in the side of the leg so that all of his tots get smooshed in an unappetizing cluster.
