With their Super Bowl commercial, titled “The Joy of Dance,” Pepsi shows you how the company has evolved over time, with a little help from Janelle. She starts out in the ’60s, where she’s dancing to The Contours’ hit “Do You Love Me” next to the jukebox.
Then, she time travels forward to the ’80s! She’s dressed up in the fashion of the era and jams to Madonna’s “Express Yourself.” She springs forward to the present day looking more glamorous than ever. She puts her own unique spin on the Pepsi theme! Stream Janelle’s music now!
While shooting the video, Janelle made some creative choices to make the commercial her own. “One of the things I love is that I had major input in the creative,” Monae told Billboard. “I consider myself a time traveler, so I was excited when they told me we’d be time traveling. It’s about the joy of dance and has some nostalgic moments. The last portion of the commercial is my own reinterpretation of Pepsi’s ‘The Joy of Cola.’ I pray people are inspired by this commercial, especially young, aspiring artists and females.”
The commercial will air during Super Bowl 50, which airs Feb. 7 at 6:30 p.m. ET on CBS. The game will be played between the Denver Broncos and the Carolina Panthers.
