There’s always three things to look forward to when the Super Bowl rolls around: the actual game, the halftime performance and, of course, the commercials. One of the first commercials fans can look forward to comes courtesy of Mountain Dew and Doritos and features hip-hop heavyweights Missy Elliott and Busta Rhymes, along with actors Morgan Freeman and Peter Dinklage, who are preparing for an epic battle.
The commercial was first teased on Elliott and Rhymes’ Instagram account earlier this week. In the dramatic teaser clips, Elliott and Rhymes are tasked with preparing their trainees for an epic tongue-twister battle. It’s a fitting role for Missy and Busta, who have both been lauded for their impeccable rap flows.
Busta acts as the trainer for Dinklage — who represents Doritos’ new Blaze chips — and encourages the actor to recite his tongue-twister faster, yelling, “I don’t know what you came to do, but I ain’t come to lose — faster!” In another dark room, Freeman — who is promoting Mountain Dew Ice — is practicing the lines of the Peter Piper nursery rhyme when Missy enters and advises him to be a little more confident when reciting his rhyme.
At the end of the video, Missy and Busta assure their students that they’re ready for the battle, which will air on Super Bowl Sunday (Feb. 4).
