Super Bowl 50: Prius ad hosts The Wire reunion
Fans of The Wire got a surprise visit from season 2’s stevedores during Sunday’s Super Bowl.
An ad for Toyota’s Prius that aired during the big game also served as a mini-reunion for the dockworkers from the acclaimed HBO series, including Pablo Schreiber (Nick Sobotka) and Chris Bauer (Frank Sobotka).

In the ad, the crew trade the docks for bank robbery, but things go awry when their getaway car gets towed. They grab a Prius as an alternative and lead police on a chase through the city.
Unfortunately for The Wire lovers, that city isn’t Baltimore. Watch “the chase of the century” in the spot above.
