The Weeknd Cruises In New 2021 Super Bowl Pepsi Halftime Show Ad

Everyone loves The Weeknd in Pepsi’s new Super Bowl LV Halftime Show national TV ad, which was released on Friday (January 8).

In the minute-long clip titled "Get Ready," viewers see folks from everywhere humming, singing and dancing along to his No. 1 smash, "Blinding Lights." Towards the end of the advertisement, Abel appears in a vintage convertible and is almost overlooked by a security guard, only to offer a smirk at the camera. The game, which will be held at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida, is scheduled to take place on February 7.

"We all grow up watching the world's biggest acts playing the Super Bowl and one can only dream of being in that position," the singer shared in a statement. "I'm humbled, honored and ecstatic to be the center of that infamous stage this year."

In a separate statement from JAY-Z, who serves as NFL's live music and entertainment strategist, the rapper spoke highly of the entertainer. "This is an extraordinary moment in time and the Pepsi Super Bowl LV Halftime Show is going to be an extraordinary experience with an extraordinary performer," he explained.
