Janelle Monae timehops in new Pepsi Super Bowl commercial
As Sunday’s Super Bowl approaches, commercials set to air during the broadcast have begun to trickle out. Drake danced to “Hotline Bling” (again), Seal appeared with a choir of babies, Willem Dafoe became Marilyn Monroe, and now Janelle Monae dances through musical eras in a new spot for Pepsi.
Monae, who’s known for her retro chic tunes, first jams out next to an old-fashioned jukebox as The Countours’ 1962 classic “Do You Love Me” blares. She then moves on to an ’80s-themed dance party where Madonna’s “Express Yourself” plays, before arriving at a modern setting featuring her own take on the Pepsi theme.
Super Bowl 50 airs Sunday night at 6:30 p.m. ET on CBS and will feature the Denver Broncos and Carolina Panthers. Check out Monae in the new Pepsi commercial below.
