Kevin Federline has something to say to those who were offended by the Super Bowl ad featuring him as a fast-food worker: He’s “really sorry.”

“The commercial is completely intended for me, making fun of myself and my own situation,” the aspiring rapper, 28, told Associated Press Television in a recent interview. “It has nothing to do with anybody in the fast-food industry at all. So, you know, if we’ve offended anybody, I’m really sorry about that.”

National Restaurant Association president and chief executive Steven Anderson said that the ad amounts to a “strong and direct insult to the millions who work in the restaurant industry.”

Nationwide Mutual Insurance Co.’s 30-second spot shows Federline performing in a glitzy music video. However, the punch line is that he’s daydreaming – while cooking french fries at a fast-food joint.

It’s a “‘Saturday Night Live’ skit on myself. … Maybe it’ll land me some good roles in Hollywood,” said Federline, whose debut album, Playing With Fire, has had dismal sales since its release last fall.
