Animal lover Ellen DeGeneres has found the perfect Super Bowl commercial to do – playing a hip Goldilocks opposite some funky wild beasts in a funny, stylish ad for Beats Music.

DeGeneres, 56, shares the minute-long video on her talk show Thursday. A playful reimagining of the fairy tale The Three Bears, it shows her sneaking into a luxury condo complex called The Woods and putting on different headphones – but the music is too fast, too slow or otherwise grating.

Finally, she tries the Beats Music streaming app, and it’s just right. Suddenly, out of nowhere, some nattily attired bears and wolves appear, and they join Ellen in an impromptu dance party.

“I had so much fun shooting the commercial,” DeGeneres says in introducing the clip, which will air Sunday night on the big game. “And you’re really not supposed to see it until the Super Bowl, but it’s my birthday [week] and my show, so I get to do what I want.”
