Mezuzah features in Google Super Bowl ad

Commercial touts diversity of Google Home users, also features a house with an LGBT pride flag

Those paying close attention to a Google ad aired during the 2017 Super Bowl Sunday night might have noticed a mezuzah affixed to the doorpost at the entrance to a house.

The one-minute commercial was promoting Google Home, a voice-activated speaker powered by Google Assistant.

With the West Virginia state anthem, “Country Roads,” whistling in the background, a variety of users are seen demonstrating different ways to employ the device.

Those included controlling the lights, looking up recipes, and receiving quick phrase translations.

The mezuzah appears 13 seconds into the ad.

An LGBT pride flag can be spotted on a home displayed earlier in the video, which stressed the diversity of Google users.

The segment turned out to be a recycling of an identical version that first aired in October 2016.
