George RR Martin started writing ‘A Song of Ice and Fire’ back in 1991, but the title of the series has finally started making sense. No, if you thought it was in reference to the dragons and the north, then you are absolutely mistaken.
That title was nothing but a build up for truly the greatest advertisement ever. And, there are so many reasons why it’s the best thing you will ever watch. First of all, it features Tyrion Lannister going head to head with God himself, and it looks like he demanded a trial by rap instead of combat this time.
While most of us wouldn’t really care about the Super Bowl here, the ads for it are something that we can fully enjoy, especially when it features Peter Dinklage and Morgan Freeman having an epic rap battle of all things.
The ad is basically a joint promotion of Doritos Blaze and Mountain Dew Ice, and they honestly outdid themselves by casting a ‘Game of Thrones’ actor. What a brilliant representation. Peter Dinklage is on the side of the fiery Doritos Blaze while Morgan Freeman showcases the coolness of Mountain Dew Ice on the other.
The ‘Game of Thrones’ star bravely tackles Busta Rhymes’ verse in the Chris Brown song ‘Look at Me Now.’ Moreover, the rapper himself makes an appearance inside a picture frame as Dinklage’s coach. As soon as the actor takes a bite of the Doritos, the whole room is covered in flames as he turns up the heat.
Not the one to be burned out, Morgan Freeman gives the perfect response by lip syncing Missy Elliott’s ‘Get Ur Freak On’, and it’s the coolest thing you will ever see, and yes, pun totally intended. And, obviously Missy Elliott makes an appearance as Freeman’s mentor, dressed as an ice queen with bright green lipstick.
Side note – is this some kind of confirmation that Tyrion Lannister is in fact a Targaryen? He does seem very comfortable with fire.
And, while we’re on the topic, could this be considered Morgan Freeman’s audition to be one of the white walkers? He would totally kill it.
Check out the epic rap battle and the best ad ever:
