Wisconsin's 'Grandma Drummer' featured in Super Bowl ad


WISCONSIN (WKOW) -- A Wisconsin woman is seeing her 15 minutes of fame extended. Known as the "Grandma Drummer," she was featured in a Pizza Hut ad.

Back in July, her spirited drumming became a YouTube sensation. She's now racked up 5 million views.

The man who recorded the video isn't surprised the pizza chain wanted to use the footage. He says the spontaneity is what makes it great.

"I think that's what appeals to many people is the fact that it wasn't forced," Dustin Hackworth said. "It was us catching talent as it was fleeting away, you know what I mean?"

Once the company got permission to use the video, the ad was immediately posted online.
