WAUWATOSA - The 'Sad Packers Fan' will make an appearance during the Super Bowl.

A viral video of Casey Lewis sobbing after the 2012 Packers playoff loss to the Giants has been seen by more than 2-million viewers.

"The good thing is I don't think anyone recognizes me on the street," Lewis told WTMJ's Wisconsin's Afternoon News.  "Maybe now (they will) with this commercial."

Lewis, and other viral video celebrities, will be featured in a Volkswagen ad on Sunday.  You can see a version of the ad here.

"It was a fun experience" she said.

The theme is 'be happy,' according to Lewis.

"(The advertisers) are using upset, angry, sad, You Tube 'celebrities," Lewis explained. "If you're driving a Volkswagen then you'll be happy."

The ad also features Jamaican musician Jimmy Cliff.

"He was very nice," Lewis said.  "I didn't understand a word he was saying."

As for the viral video, Lewis has no regrets.

"I think it's pretty funny.  If you know me, you know that (a sad Packers fan) is pretty much what I am."
