Procter & Gamble’s Olay is back in the Super Bowl with a commercial, created by Badger & Winters, that continues the brand’s commitment to inspire women to “Face Anything.”

Inspired by the first all-female space walk last year, Olay’s spot stars Lilly Singh and Busy Philipps who take a trip into outer space with retired astronaut Nicole Stott. Their space mission is overseen by Mission Controller Taraji P. Henson and reported on by news anchor Katie Couric. 

Directed by Jamie Babbit via production house Independent Media, the ad puts this crew of women on the quest to #MakeSpaceForWomen.

Madonna Badger, chief creative officer of Badger & Winters, said, “The Super Bowl is advertising’s biggest night, which is why we wanted to go big as well. With ‘Make Space for Women,’ we loved combining a bit of wordplay with the very serious world of science and technology—a world, by the way, that continues to exclude women in large numbers. We’re very excited to partner with Olay to help change that and thrilled to be working with so many talented women behind the camera.”
