35 Of The Best Twitter Reactions To The Death Of Mr. Peanut, Aged 104

If you catch the 2020 Super Bowl, you’ll probably see an ad of the beloved Mr. Peanut precariously dangling from a tree, along with his pals Matt Walsh and Wesley Snipes. In order to break the weight on the branch and keep them all from hovering on the edge of certain death, Mr. Peanut dies to save his friends.

All of this after the gang rode down the street and crashed trying to avoid an armadillo, launching them over a cliff and into the tree. SUPER heavy, Planters team. Super heavy.

Planters wrote, “It is with heavy hearts that we confirm that Mr. Peanut has died at 104. In the ultimate selfless act, he sacrificed himself to save his friends when they needed him most.”

We’ve all grown up with Mr. Peanut as a snack icon—he’s the only legume who, for some reason, wears a monocle and a top hat. And now he’s gone.
