Super Bowl 2024: Verizon is dropping cryptic ads ahead of the Super Bowl, and the internet says all clues point to Beyoncé

Verizon released two ads that fans say hint at a Beyoncé Super Bowl commercial.
The ads appear to feature references to Beyoncé’s music and album art.
Neither Verizon nor Beyoncé have confirmed the speculations on social media.

Why is Tony Hale squeezing lemons and talking to a silver disco horse in a Verizon commercial? For diehard fans, all signs point to Beyoncé.

Verizon released two bizarre ads on Thursday and Friday, leading TikTok and X viewers to speculate that the superstar is involved with the company. Some say she could be set to appear in a Super Bowl commercial.

“The Lemonade references? My House playing in the end? Verizon being one of Renaissance World Tour’s sponsors? Are we really going to see thee Beyoncé in a commercial during the Superbowl?” one Beyonce fan account wrote on X.

In the first commercial released Thursday, Hale appears surrounded by lemons.

“Hold up. She wants me to squeeze all these lemons by myself?” Hale says, with a lemon juicer in their hand. “This better work.”

The “Hold up” line, fans speculated, could reference a song in Beyoncé’s 2016 studio album “Lemonade” — hence the lemons.

“Hold up, they don’t love you like I love you,” Beyoncé sings at the beginning of the anti-cheater anthem, reportedly inspired by Jay-Z’s infidelity.

The short clip ends with “2/11/24” in the center of a black screen — the date of this year’s Super Bowl — and a split-second song snippet. Fans quickly noticed that the music at the end sounded very familiar to “My House,” a song released by Bey in December that served as the end credits to her movie “Renaissance: A Film by Beyoncé.”

And just when the Beyhive thought they couldn’t get more hype, Verizon dropped a second commercial Friday, this time featuring a silver horse statue.

“Should we be in a Super Bowl commercial? Yay or Neigh,” Hale, who played Buster Bluth in the FOX comedy series “Arrested Development,” says to the horse. The lifeless horse does not laugh at the joke, and Hale walks away, saying, “OK, this is a problem.”

The same outro follows the commercial.
