Napoleon Dynamite and Pedro Are Still BFFs in a Hilarious New Burger King Tater Tots Commercial

Give me some of your tots!

Twelve years after Napoleon Dynamite won our hearts (and Deb’s) with his dexterous dancing skills in the film that shares his name, he’s teaming up with his old pal Pedro to make a commercial for — what else? — tater tots.

Following the “Whopperito” and those infamous Cheeto chicken fries, Burger King is now offering cheesy tater tots and they enlisted Napoleon Dynamite (Jon Heder) and Pedro (Efren Ramirez) to recreate their memorable cafeteria scene from the movie in one of their restaurants.

In the clip, Heder asks Ramirez for one of his tater tots before proceeding to steal all of his tots; unfortunately for us, Heder doesn’t put them all in his pocket as Napoleon did in the film.

Watch the full commercial below.
