The film follows Dave Bautista’s tough guy Vic Manning, a detective who recruits his gentle Uber driver (Silicon Valley’s Kumail Nanjiani) for an unexpected night of dangerous adventures.
Nanjiani’s Stu, (Uber…Stu… Stuber, get it?) can be seen wearing a blue St-Viateur Bagel tee throughout much of the film, including the shop’s iconic bagel man logo.
“Check out @kumailn wearing a St Viateur Bagel shirt throughout Hollywood’s action movie, Stuber,” reads a post on St-Viateur Bagel’s social channels. “Thank you to director [Michael] Dowse for including us in his movie!”
Last summer, the landmark Montreal bagel shop got some more Hollywood love as funnyman Adam Sandler swung by for a classic pastry.
Stuber and St-V’s tee is now playing in theatres.
