‘What’s gotten into Lindsay?’ asks a room of gym goers while the actress pedals away on a stationary bike.

‘She’s never been sharper,’ says Shatner in a voiceover before cutting to Lohan on a celebrity Jeopardy episode where she beats Dennis Rodman to a correct answer about himself.

Jeopardy Tournament of Champions winner Buzzy Cohen served as Lindsay and Dennis’ other contestant.

‘She’s sleeping better than ever,’ Shatner continues. ‘Which the paparazzi aren’t thrilled about.’

Cut to the outside of a night club with a gaggle of photographers, hysterically crying and wishing for the old Lindsay to return.

‘She’s even more productive,’ says Shatner, ‘trading DUIs for DIY.’ The redheaded star is seen bedazzling an ankle monitor on Danny Trejo with rhinestones in his initials ‘DT.’

Lindsay was arrested twice in 2007 for driving under the influence. In 2009 her probation was extended a year for failing to attended substance abuse treatment, which was required. She was sent back to jail for missing a hearing relating to her DUI and thus violating her probation.  

Probation was revoked again in 2010 after she failed a drug test. The following year she was sentenced to house arrest – and forced to wear an ankle monitor – over stealing a necklace from a shop on Abbott Kinney in Venice, California.

To answer the initial question posed at the start of the clip, it’s not has gotten into Lindsay, rather, it is what she has gotten into – which is a new work out routine at Planet Fitness. 

The spot is scheduled to air during the third quarter of Super Bowl LVI on February 13, Variety reported. 

‘We really tried to have fun with it and find someone who could really own the stage at the Super Bowl for us,’ Jeremy Tucker, the company’s chief marketing officer, told the outlet. 

Lindsay dished on the excitement around filming a commercial for the big game while chatting this week with Extra.

‘It’s more fun when you’re doing the Super Bowl because it’s so secretive, so you feel like you’re doing something wrong but so good,’ she said.

‘It was the first thing that I’ve shot in L.A. in years, that was exciting too just to be back and have that energy of being at a studio, doing a commercial, setting up, getting to set, it was really exciting and really fun,’ Lindsay added.

She also gushed over getting to work with Danny Trejo again after acting alongside one another in the 2010 action flick Machete. 

‘It was really good to see him again,’ she said of Trejo. ‘And Dennis was hysterical… And William Shatner was a hoot – but it was really good, it was really fun.’

Lohan looked like she was having a great time, and another celebrity seemed to want in on it. Kathy Griffin tweeted about how she was up for the same commercial and how much she enjoyed seeing Lohan. 

‘Awww, they called my reps about my availability for this super bowl ad. I guess it got up the chain and was a…pass. BUT, I think it’s a great ad and am excited for the Lindsay Lohan come back!!!!’

Lohan counts herself among the camp of people who don’t tune in to the Super Bowl for the game but, rather, she watches for the commercials.  

‘It’s a tradition, my brother and my friends always get together and watch the Super Bowl and I’ll be watching it with my fiancé and family here,’ she told Extra. ‘But I watch the Super Bowl to see the halftime and the commercials.’ 

A 30 second spot on NBC, which is airing the game, is reportedly worth a staggering $6million a pop, according to Variety.

Back in the summer, the outlet noted that sources said ‘NBC is also telling potential sponsors they may have to buy an equal amount of ad inventory in its 2022 broadcast of the Beijing Winter Olympics.’

Tune in! The spot is scheduled to air during the third quarter of Super Bowl LVI on February 13, Variety reported

The Los Angeles Rams and the Cincinnati Bengals will face off at the Super Bowl this year, held in Los Angeles, which attracts tens of millions of viewers.

The Planet Fitness commercial is just one step in Lindsay’s big acting comeback plan. She will star in a holiday flick for Netflix next season and the streamer released the first glimpse from Falling for Christmas on Thursday.  

She doesn’t speak in the short snapshot from the holiday film but Lindsay is spotted with her signature red hair walking through a snow covered town.
