From office linebacker Terry Tate laying out co-workers to little Darth Vader using his powers to get the car to start, there are some Super Bowl commercials that you don't forget. 

On Thursday, TODAY caught up with four people whose lives changed in an instant after more than 100 million people saw them in a memorable Super Bowl commercial. Check out how they are doing now:

Max Page (Little Darth Vader)

Today
  • Famous for playing a miniature Darth Vader in a 2011 Volkswagen Passat commercial, Page, 10, has continued his acting career on "The Young and the Restless" and other shows. 
  • Page also has become a spokesperson for pediatric healthcare. He has a pacemaker after being diagnosed with a congenital heart condition at 3 months old. "I'm feeling better than I ever felt before,'' he told Savannah Guthrie. "I just love talking to kids, and it makes me feel like I can tell them about my experience." 

Jesse Heiman (Guy who kissed Bar Rafaeli)

Today
  • Since kissing supermodel Bar Rafaeli in a 2013 GoDaddy commercial, Heiman has gone from a bit actor to working regularly. He told Matt Lauer there is a a documentary about him currently being filmed, and that he has gotten the lead role in a short film. "I've got big auditions happening. I'm really happy with the progress I'm making,'' Heiman said. 
  • Rafaeli surprised Heiman on Thursday with an interview via Skype from filming a commercial in Israel. "Not only are people nonstop talking to me about (the Super Bowl commercial)... someone just asked me about it in an interview five minutes ago," the supermodel said. 

Gwen Dean (Quit her job on live TV)

Today
  • Dean quit her job of 18 years as a machine engineer live on a GoDaddy commercial at last year's Super Bowl to pursue her dream of a puppetry business. "Business is going great,'' she told Guthrie. "I've hired two people, I have more free time to myself, more money in the bank - it's not bad." 
  • After the commercial aired, her boss texted her congratulations, writing, "You've got to be kidding. Wow. Great commercial." She still keeps in touch with him. "Oh yeah, Ted's great. We're Facebook pals now." 

Lester Speight (Played "Terrible Terry Tate," office linebacker)

Today
  • The former United States Football League player and pro wrestler starred in a 2003 Reebok ad where he tackled and admonished unproductive officer workers. "Break was over 15 minutes ago, Mitch!" Speight told Lauer that he directed a movie last year titled "Inside" and hosts a comedy night in Los Angeles among multiple projects.
