In case you missed it, Planters killed off Mr. Peanut last month as part of an ad campaign.

On Super Bowl Sunday, we found out why.

In its ad, Planters revealed Mr. Peanut would be reborn.

Hello world, I’m happy to be back! I can’t believe everyone came together for little old me! #BabyNut

They decided to name the new mascot....Baby Nut.

Yes, #BabyNut.

#BabyNut here, back and cuter than ever! Now what should I do next? Tell me in the replies and I’ll try to do them in real time! And yes… suggestions that are a little nutty are ok. https://t.co/UWFWzPURht

People innocently watching the Super Bowl choked a little bit.

Honestly, between Mr. Peanut's "death," the Kool-Aid man at the funeral, and then Baby Nut...many people were overwhelmed.

Though many wondered if Baby Nut was trying to tap into the viral fame of Baby Yoda.
