Per The Hill:

A super PAC backing Robert F. Kennedy Jr. for president ran a Super Bowl ad on Sunday in support of the independent candidate, an unexpected move for the long-shot campaign. American Values 2024 ran a 30-second spot leaning on the legacy of former President John F. Kennedy, repeating clips, slogans and images from his 1960 presidential campaign.

The spot, just before the highly anticipated halftime show, generated fervor on social media and was the first political ad of the big game broadcast.

The ad cost $7 million, PAC co-chair Tony Lyons confirmed to The Hill.

RFK Jr. immediately issued a statement:

“I’m so sorry if the Super Bowl advertisement caused anyone in my family pain. The ad was created and aired by the American Values Super PAC without any involvement or approval from my campaign. FEC rules prohibit Super PACs from consulting with me or my staff. I love you all. God bless you,” RFK Jr. wrote on X.
