Super Bowl 2019 Commercial or 'Big Lebowski' Sequel? Jeff Bridges Hints at Returning as 'The Dude'

It's 2019 but suddenly feels like the late '90s after a teaser clip revealed itself Thursday on Twitter feeds.

Jeff Bridges tweeted a 15-second clip featuring himself in the iconic 1998 role of Jeff "The Dude" Lebowski from the iconic 1998 film, The Big Lebowski. Wearing his unzipped Pendleton jacket, The Dude–much greyer this time around–looks past his dark-rimmed sunglasses before released a soft chuckle and walking off screen.

With the simple caption of, "Can't be living in the past, man. Stay tuned," viewers are left with a date as a tumbleweed moves across the screen February 3.

Garnering nearly 3 million views in five hours, it looked like fans of the cult-classic had their sequel prayers answered.

"Not all heroes wear capes. Some have been wearing the same ratty cardigan for the past 21 years," one Twitter user wrote.

Despite the initial excitement, the dust settles and we wonder what this means for our favorite white Russian-slurping dude. Since the revealed date is the same one as Super Bowl LIII, many began to believe of a Lebowski-themed commercial.

"Y'all do realize there is zero chance this is anything more than just the one commercial, right? Movies aren't made in secret and movies like Big Lebowski would not buy Super Bowl ad time," one person hypothesized.

While it isn't clear what this means for The Dude, it was a rollercoaster of emotions in the Twitter replies.

Directed by Joel Cohen the film follows Bridges' character, who is "mistaken for a millionaire of the same name, seeks restitution for his ruined rug and enlists his bowling buddies to help get it," according to IMDb. The film grossed over $46 million worldwide.

Bridges is arguably most known for his 1998 role; however is also known from his roles in Crazy Heart (2009), True Grit (2010) and Hell or High Water (2016).

Find out what the future holds for "The Dude" when the Los Angeles Rams go up against the New England Patriots, February 3. Kickoff will be at 6:30 p.m. ET on CBS.
