Missy Elliot and Morgan Freeman Will Battle a Busta Rhymes-Peter Dinklage Duo in the Doritos vs. Mountain Dew Super Bowl Spot

PepsiCo releases second teaser for the ad

The epic battle between Freeman and Dinklage just got better. PepsiCo

PepsiCo’s Super Bowl LII ad for Mountain Dew and Doritos just got a lot more epic. The snacks and beverage company announced today that hip-hop legends Missy Elliot and Busta Rhymes will appear in the ad alongside actors Morgan Freeman and Peter Dinklage.

In a second teaser (below), Elliot is paired with Freeman for Mountain Dew Ice while Rhymes and Dinklage come together for Doritos Blaze. The duos are seen practicing tongue twisters in the mirror leading up to a major showdown.

The 60-second ad, created by Goodby Silverstein & Partners, focuses not on classic Doritos or Mountain Dew products, but instead on two PepsiCo innovations—Mountain Dew Ice (a lemon-lime beverage) and Doritos Blaze (a hot and spicy version of the classic chip).

So, which one will you choose?

Today’s teaser follows an earlier version that revealed only Freeman and Dinklage.
