Watch Peter Dinklage and Morgan Freeman Face Off in an Epic Super Bowl Commercial
PepsiCo is making advertising history by bringing two products together for a 60-second broadcast
In a 15-second teaser for the ad that will air during Super Bowl LII on Feb. 4, Peter Dinklage and Morgan Freeman appear to face off for their respective team. The Game of Thrones star reps Doritos Blaze, a hot and spicy spin on the chip, while Freeman stands up for Mountain Dew Ice, the brand’s new lemon-lime flavored soda.
Along with marking a return of both brands to the big game after taking a year off — Doritos took a hiatus after its fan-generated “Crash the Super Bowl” campaign that concluded at Super Bowl 50 while Mountain Dew last launched their “Puppymonkeybaby” ad in the 2016 game – PepsiCo is bringing the two products together for this 60-second commercial.
