National Geographic has released its first-ever Super Bowl spot — you can watch it below — a 45-second teaser for the channel’s upcoming scripted series “Genius,” about Albert Einstein. The show rolls out Tuesday, April 25.
The clip features Geoffrey Rush as Einstein, playing the violin. The clip includes a bit of the Lady Gaga song “Bad Romance,” played by Einstein — in fact, the title of the spot is “Bad Romance.” Nat Geo notes that the spot is slotted to run right after Lady Gaga’s halftime performance.
Here’s the tidbit we promised: According to material Nat Geo included with the release of the clip, Einstein rarely left his house without his beloved violin.
