But we’re happy to announce that day is here, and it’s the best thing the internet has gotten its hands on leading up to Super Bowl LII.
Music and sports fans alike have PepsiCo to thank for the comedy gold, as Freeman’s rap spit is found in the storyline of a joint commercial for Doritos Blaze and Mountain Dew Ice. The first part of the commercial shows the Misdemeanor coaching Freeman for his epic performance of her 2001 platinum smash hit, “Get Ur Freak On.”
But not before we see another film-rap star duo with Busta Rhymes prepping Game of Thrones actor Peter Dinklage for his lip-sync matchup with Busta’s verse from Chris Brown’s “Look At Me Now.” The fire and ice dynamic is captivating, as Dinklage spits heat before Freeman gets icy on ‘em—literally. Walking the floor of an arctic palace that Frozen fans would die for, the fog from Freeman’s mouth accurately represents the ice cold bars he hilariously rhymes through. Missy also makes a second cameo in the commercial, posed as a breathtaking ice queen handling the track’s ad-libs.
