Ad of the Day: Mountain Dew's Kickstart Turns Dudes Into the Craziest Dancers

Along with almost everything else in the house

The 90-second spot will air on Super Bowl pregame.

Take a sip of a Mountain Dew Kickstart, and the world's greatest and strangest dance party will unfold.

At least, that's what goes down in this very entertaining 90-second spot from BBDO New York debuting two new flavors of Mtn Dew Kickstart: Mtn Dew Pineapple Orange Mango and Mtn Dew Strawberry Kiwi.

Although Mountain Dew is a sponsor of the Super Bowl through parent company PepsiCo, the brand won't run a spot on Sunday's game. Instead, Mountain Dew will debut this spot during the Super Bowl pregame show and follow up—during and post-game—on Twitter, YouTube, Snapchat and Vine.

You'll witness some pretty weird stuff going on here, but we wouldn't want to spoil the experience for you. Take a look for yourself:

Now, no one is saying that when you crack open an ice-cold Mtn Dew Kickstart that the people in that yellow traffic sign won't do some pelvic thrusts, your dog won't turn around and wiggle his butt, and those video game characters won't start shimmying. However, it seems unlikely. The idea here is that after a few gulps of one of these bad boys, you will be ready to take on anything—even a deer dancing in your living room.

At the end of the spot, you can click around for a few extra, remixed clips featuring the talking deer and the twerking dog, in case you don't feel fully satisfied.
