A series of teasers has seen Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl teasing his Super Bowl spot for Diageo whisky brand Crown Royal. (He’s apparently also a fan.)

In those teasers were hints of the main spot, which will run in the third quarter of the Big Game after halftime.

The 30-second spot finds Grohl in a recording studio in front of a mixing board. He turns to the camera and says, “Today, let’s thank Canada.” He then launches into a list of the great things to come out of the Great White North, starting with music from artists including Rush, Joni Mitchell, Oscar Peterson and Celine Dion.
