Anyone who watched the Super Bowl yesterday is now familiar with the general idea of what it's like to make out with Bar Refaeli, courtesy of a commercial:

But you're also familiar, if you fall into that category, of what it's like to make out with one Jesse Heiman. Heiman, 34, is the lucky young man who had the honor of sucking face with Rafeali, for an awkwardly long amount of time as far as viewers were concerned, but probably not long enough as far as he was concerned.

According to TMZ, Heiman is now blowing up. He's getting offers to go out on dates over Twitter, people are contacting his agent and manager to get him in more spots and TV shows, and he is being referred to in a headline on the gossip site as a "sex symbol."

"There are lots of inquiries coming in to my agent and manager, their phone has been ringing off the hook, but they are really letting me enjoy the moment right now," Heiman said.

Heiman's IMDB page notes that he was born in Newton, Massachusetts, and moved to LA in 2000. It also makes clear that the spot wasn't his first rodeo -- he has over 65 credits to his name, including "The Mindy Project," "How I Met Your Mother," and "Glee."

Heiman was also the subject of a video called "World's Greatest Extra" (below), posted to YouTube in March of 2011, which describes him as having appeared "in every movie and tv-show ever created."

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Heiman's face will next show up on your small screen in an episode of "The Big Bang Theory," which will air on February 14.
